Do we choose our pets, or do they choose us? In the case of Frogbert, clearly it is the latter.
Scott Dragoo, a resident at 987 Walker Circle since October 2011, found a leopard frog living in his basement window well last summer. Most people would evict the amphibian squatter, but Scott took a different route: he made the frog more comfortable. Scott turned the window well into a lush and attractive habitat with everything Frogbert could want.
The floor of the window well is covered with smooth river rocks of varying sizes and shapes. There are potted ferns for shade, a fresh water supply from Scott’s rain barrel, plenty of places to hide when a frog wants privacy, a nice branch for sitting on and even a frog-sized pond that Frogbert loves to sit in with only his face sticking out of the water. It’s a cool, moist place, and when insects check in…they don’t check out.
Our pets do appreciate a comfortable home, and this summer Frogbert showed his appreciation by coming back to his habitat for a second season.
