Habits makes way for practices – found a perfect example to demonstrate this :) !
For the past few weeks, I have been following the ‘practice’ of this fellow in the picture. He makes his grand appearance some time in the late evening and goes off for his evening stroll (I presume, not too sure about that though). Come morning, I find him ‘cooling his heels’ in none other than our tabby’s water-saucer! A few minutes after his ‘bath’ and he is off to his hidey-hole – a damp place behind a clump of flower-pots.
This morning had our tabby curiously following the frog’s progress to its ‘water-hole’. It prodded the frog with its paws, perhaps saying “Grrrrr…..get lost ! You are contaminating the water I drink.” I feared that the frog would end up as our tabby’s breakfast. But to my relief, no such untoward thing occurred. Froggy dear ignored the probable threat to its life and continued water-bathing. Finally tabby gave up (perhaps, frogs did not appeal to her appetite) and embarked on her morning practice – wailing as if we have not fed her for days!
So…. practice makes frog perfect? I hope so… :)!
