As a lot of readers will know, I put out dog food most nights for the foxes.
For a few nights now I have also been putting jam sandwiches cut into squares as one of the foxes is looking like it may have the start of mange. I sprinkle the mange drops on the bread and it is a good way to make sure they get it.
Usually I put it down in the garden and any residue left is greedily eaten by the slugs and snails.
The problem is that they are leaving a silver layer over the stone.
This doesn't bother me too much but when its wet it is very slippery so I have taken to throwing the food over the wall and into the alley where there are no slugs or snails.
It's all gone in the morning so it causes no problems and the other neighbours do not use the alley.
But...last night as I threw the food over one of the jam sandwiches bounced off of the wall and went into next doors garden. ooops!
I wasn't too bothered as I have seen the foxes rooting around there at night so thought they would find it.
Imagine my horror when I looked over my neighbours garden this morning to see half of a jam sandwich stuck to the top inside rim of one of the large new flower pots he has just bought to put his roses into.
This evening it's gone so he must have removed it, but I'm sure he is wondering just how a jam sandwich managed to get stuck to his new pot. lol
Shall I come clean and tell him or can I think of another good reason for it being there?
I know it's naughty but its given me the giggles all day when I think of it.
