The carpet on the stairs between my laundry room and living room looks like a dog tore it to shreds.
That’s because one did.
The screen on my back door looks as if cats have been climbing it.
That’s because they have.
The gaping hole in the drywall in my bathroom looks as if children took a hammer to it.
That’s because they did — to free their pet ferret from the wall.
If you sense a pattern here — a pattern that indicates my home is slowly being destroyed by small animals — you get a gold star.
