.......behind my violas on the front doorstep!
When I drove onto the driveway I saw a little dark thing snuffling around and turning this way and that, he then went behind the pot. I went in the back door so as not to disturb him!
Later on when we opened the front door to have a peep, he was fast asleep.
PS: He does look like a spikey rat, but it's just cable - not a tail!
