147. The Tenacity of Boris
Meet Boris. When I found him he was aleep next to the where our living room door meets its frame. Perhaps too close, ase this might explain why he only has seven legs [all together: ahh poor Boris].
Unfortunately for Boris, my efforts to get a snap awakend him and he tried to scale the wall to get out of my way. When he reached the dado rail though he was stuck as the paintwork was to shiny for him to climb. This was the fascinating bit though. I wish I had videoed it rather than taking a still shot. Using four or five legs to dig in he used the remaining free legs to feel the rail very quickly searching for any little spots that would provide a foothold. He worked the entire rail like this until he found a gap at the end that he could disappear into. What a worker!
