Work is a bear lately!

    I was trapped in my office last night waiting for the bear to leave. He [apparently] even tried to stick his head in the cat door!

    I was just getting ready to head up at about midnight when I heard him right outside the door. And I didn't have my flashlight, so I was completely blind and didn't want to take a chance on a move for the car.

    You have very brave bears! Black bears are quite timid around here and go out of their way to avoid being seen.

    I don't know if he knew I was here. And I figured he would probably run if I opened the door but I didn't want to take a chance. That he was so comfortable rummaging around was not reassuring. But as I've said before, I now suspect he or others have been coming around for a long time. I just never knew it.

    I'd bet that I've come very close to an encounter several times.

    Sounds like a grizzly situation you were in there.

    Normally I make my wife go first, just in case, but she wasn't here.

    Do you smear a little bacon-fat on her clothes (surreptitiously) before you send her out? Larry, Darryl, and Darryl swore by that as a sure-fire weight-loss routine.

    So you messed up your local ecosystem by chilling out your cats, and now you complain about the consequences? :biggrin:
