Gainesville homeowner finds squirrel in toilet
Several weeks ago, while I was in holiday elf mode delivering gifts to my customers, I was regaled with the freakiest homeowner tale I have heard in quite a while.
Seems that my buddy (let's just call her OMG) got the surprise of her life coming home from work one day. She explained that they keep all of the toilet lids closed in the house as a babyproofing measure.
Returning home from work, she went to use the bathroom, lifted up the lid, and saw some lifeless furry thing inside the bowl.
She slammed down the lid, called her husband, and announced there was a dead squirrel in their toilet.
He didn't believe her until he got home to fish the corpse out of the bowl.
How did a squirrel get in their toilet??
Well, apparently, this is not an isolated incident.
The best way to keep squirrels (and frogs, apparently) out of your toilet? Put a screen cover on your roof vent.
Oh. And Make Sure You Look Down First.
