Alligator invites himself into Palmetto home

--
A Manatee County woman got quite a surprise Saturday when she found a 6-foot alligator in her house.

Seeing the gator was quite a shock for homeowner Alexis Dunbar, who had just walked in her front door.

"I look to the right," she said. "And there's an alligator in my guest bedroom."

I removed our pet door to the outside because my cats kept bringing in stuff from outside through it.
I've seen on America's Funniest Home Videos where a raccoon stole somebody's inside door mat
through the pet door. I guess Al knew those cats were in there and went on a hunting expedition.

So you can buy a doggie door that is magnetized and doesn't open unless the dog's special collar is close enough to trigger the release.

The reason I wouldn't have a doggie door in a gator infested place is more so that the dog wouldn't be out unsupervised and get eaten.
The reason I wouldn't have one, period, is that I don't think animals should be left outside unsupervised.

In Europe we had one for the cat but my parents locked it after the cat started to show of his trophies by bringing in dead birds and even one time he brought in a life mouse...the cat never left our yard, but
never used the cat litter to do his business.

The cat was so smart that after a while he got the message that he only could go out if he didn't bring anything into the home other than himself, so the door was opened again....

I think that was a secret way to show off her new pet, too bad it costs arm and a leg to feed such beast
