The woman on the phone is frantic. I have come to expect this being in pest control. I can certainly understand why people react the way they do with pests but that does not mean I don’t find the situations funny. The woman was screaming to me about her cat bringing chipmunks inside the house alive & letting them go. There were at least 3-4 chipmunks running wild all over the house. Her teenage daughter was screaming her lungs out as she stood on the table, a safe distance from the floor. I do not blame the chipmunks for acting crazy, you ever hear a teenage girl scream??? I guess the cat was not done playing as he was chasing the chipmunks all over the house. Did I forget to mention the dog? Well the dog was chasing the cat, the cat was chasing the chipmunk, the teenager was screaming at the top of her lungs, the mother was trying to remain calm as she pleaded with us to do something. I guess you could imagine that the background noise sounded like World War III.
What can EHS do about this? Being a mom I am battle tested in most house dilemma’s, granted not to this extent but close. 1) Put a leash on the dog & put him in the bathroom. 2) Put the cat in the travel kennel. 3) Open every door in the house so the chipmunks can leave on their own. 4) Take your daughter to go get a latte then sit outside in your yard and relax. After 1-2 hours your house should be back to normal….maybe not normal but the way it was prior to the Wild Kingdom episode.
