There she is again, wandering the yard. I’ve caught sight of her now several times, always with her nose to the ground. Always sniffing. I’ve yet to have an encounter with this creature but I watch it from my window way up high. She wanders from one corner of the yard to the other always sniffing. No feathers so not a bird, and no cat I’ve ever seen looks like that. What lanky legs and such a long snout. No cat would ever look like that. Oh, it looks up. It sees me, I must not move. It sniffs the air then goes back to the dirt and walks away. There is something new in my neighbourhood.
