I SAW His BEAVER !!!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

My neighbor invited my husband over to see his Beaver.

Then my husband grabbed me so I could see my Neighbor's Beaver !!!

Wow, I haven't' ever seen a beaver before.

It was MY FIRST TIME.

They are VERY Big !!!

Larger than a cat.

I wanted to TOUCH IT !!!

It looked peaceful, eating the grass in his backyard. Kind of like he was in a Zen zone.

It stared straight at me, kept on eating as I admired his muscular body, really big teeth, humongous tail, and peaceful calm demeanor.

I wanted to reach out and PET him. He wasn't afraid of me, but I was of him. Though I kind of felt like I could of trusted him.

WOW !!!

That was really exciting. I saw my neighbor's beaver. LOL. Giggle. It feels almost naughty.

Well, it wasn't really his. It wandered up from the creek looking for a nice meal of grass.

This Morning I had to have a peek through my fence hoping for another peek of his Beaver.



I still have a bug, I feel nauseated, weak, and tired. So my step count is down as my body is requesting REST.


It appears as the beaver is making a home in a burn pile behind our home ON DRY LAND. It is quite some way from the water, so it has a ways to walk to get to the creek. We toss out old fruit that way, vegetable scraps. He was enjoying the left over grapefruit rind after I juiced. It looks like he is making it his home eating the branches at the ends pealing the bark off of it. Who knows. I hope he is safe as we have a coyote that lives back there and foxes.

    You WILD THANG! You and your HUSBAND touching your neighber's BEAVER! WOW!

Ya almost had me going with the title, and I thought How did she get THAT past the Censors!?

But I remember when it was huge news in the 1970's, when a beaver had taken up residence a mile or two north of the rural community I used to live in, and had dammed up this dry creek. Pretty soon it filled up with water. Made us all feel proud that our countryside wasn't just terribly polluted any more. I'm not sure if it is still there. But beavers weren't known to be in the area before then and like you said, it was all dry there. I didn't know if he was on private property or just on the county land - my thinking it was in the bar ditch alongside the county road out of town (or to town, depending on which way one was going.).

Don't know enough about them to say yea or nay, but I'm sure more news will be forthcoming as the beaver's relationship with your neighbor changes....

Keep us posted!!

  Funny lady! But don't touch your neighbor's beaver. It's just wrong on so many levels.

I hope you feel better soon--keep laughing; it's the best medicine.

    I know what you mean about wanting to touch that beaver. I want often ask my husband if I can touch a wild animal when we come across one. Last month we saw a buffalo and I just wanted to see what it felt like.

Hope you feel better soon. emoticon

    Seeing a beaver in the wild for the first time is exciting! I saw one a few years ago for the first time. I was sitting on a dock on the lake and one swam past me, went on land, chewed off a branch from a bush and carried it in his teeth and swam past me again with the branch. Never saw him again. :)

    Wild animals are so cute, but you were right to not touch him! They can have diseases or parasites that can get on you, or if they accidentally bite or scratch you it could be dangerous. It's better to admire them from a distance.

I live in a major metropolitan suburb and there have been deer, a few ducks, and tons of geese.

Hope you feel better soon!

Cool !!

I saw a beaver making a dam once. One of my family members own a house with a huge lot of land with a small stream in the back. They have a beaver dam ! Yes, they have to go in and break up the dam or risk the house flooding. and the beavers come back and build it again. ;)
