Like any devoted parents, Caitlin Burch and her husband simply adore their two daughters, aged 9 and 6. But they also know that kids can have quite the imagination.
One night a few months back, Burch’s younger daughter came to her to say she’d seen an animal parading around in the bedroom she shares with her sister. While it wasn’t out of the question that, say, a little mouse had skittered by, the child’s description of the creature rang a bit more fanciful than true.
“She showed us with her hands the size of it and said it was fluffy,” Burch told The Dodo. “My husband and I both looked in their room, but didn’t see anything.”
