and dream of sheep

last night (this morning, really, because i didn't get to bed until 5:30 or so) i dreamt that the iguana was loose. i was (where?) in the house, and all of a sudden there was a flash of movement scuttling close to the ground. there's a particular way lizards move when they are agitated, much faster than any mammal can really grok, and so i saw a scuttling flash of green out of the corner of my eye, with loki barking frantically in hot pursuit.

shit, i must have left spike's cage open, i thought, yelling "loki! no touch!"

i chased the animals into the sunroom, which is where all the caged critters live, and spike was in his cage, safe and sound, but the scuttling thing i'd seen was huddled in the corner of the room, with one of loki's tennis balls in it's mouth, and it was at that moment that i realized that i had another pet that i'd completely forgotten about and had neglected to feed for weeks, and it was trying to eat the tennis ball because it was green. the creature itself was kind of lizard-like, but also fuzzy, and was blue. it wasn't furry like a dog or cat, but more fuzzy like a tennis ball with sparse dreadlocks. i was horrified that i'd forgotten to feed him, but i couldn't remember what i was supposed to feed him.
