It Snuck In The House

Barney cocoadelicous – Another case of nature coming indoors. This cute cuddly creature must have snuck in the dining room when the patio door was left open. I caught it climbing a chair. No doubt it was searching for chocolate, which is its favourite food, as indicated in the species Latin name. I photographed it through the patio window from outside as I didn’t want to frighten it off. Also note these are very partial to sherry as well as chocolate, so make sure you keep them locked away – the sherry and the chocolate, and not the Barney. Needless to say, unless these creep you out, double-click image for a closer look-see.

Just having a bit of light fun during these very strange and trying times.

  3. JUST what the doctor ordered! I wouldn’t mind if one of these creatures snuck into my house – I would bring out the chocolate and sherry pronto AND provide as many hugs as are needed!

  5. Haha, don’t make yourself sick eating too many Easter eggs there Barney. And you are too cute and cuddly to be squished or swatted.

    1. 🙂 He was expecting a Cadbury lorry load of chocolate Easter eggs to pull up outside the house this morning … but was content with pinching mine in the end! 😉

  6. Hahahaaaa! Very good! You really fooled me. I first saw the feet and was asking myself…. I think I would share with the cute Barney. Someone who likes chocolate is very welcome 🙂
