    I think there's a frog in here!

    Well, I got my "red" Japanese Maple today (red and green let's say) but after I was done unpacking it I've heard a few frog/toad croaks & chirps but my windows aren't open so I think a frog from Tennessee has made a trip to Minnesota. I can't find him anywhere so I was wondering if there's any sort of "frog trap" I might devise to catch him. I don't want the cats to find him first and get poisoned by trying to eat it.

    Thanks for any advice you might have!

    Best thing to do is sit in a room with the lights down and listen then try and track the sound.

    And if you do not get him in a few days forget it cause he will likely dehydrate...

    Can you put out a bowl of water with a small dibbles water fall? I think frogs are attracted to the sound of water in.

    Stephen King wrote about this very situation - strange chirpy frog sounds. Have you noticed a fog settling in over your town. If so, read The Mist and, if you see tentacles coming towards you, don't be thinking calamari.

    I have this weekend off so I'll keep an ear open. There is a waterbowl in the kitchen for the cats though they like the water from the bathtub faucet better (?) so there's a bowl in the tub too. I seem to catch escaped crickets and other bugs and once even a mouse was trapped in the waterbowl so hopefully the frog will locate one of them and I can catch it. My anole needs a buddy!
