I Have a Frog Living in My Toilet.

We’re going to take a break from the norm today and share a little story about island life.

I have a frog living in my toilet. True story.

I had a house guest back in February who told me there was a frog in the kitchen. It must be a lizard, I assured him. Nope, it’s a frog, he said. I went in the kitchen and he was right. I scooped up the little fella and put him outside.

Well he came back. Or perhaps he sent a friend or family member.

Earlier this week I went into the bathroom and jumped when I saw something move in the toilet. I looked a bit closer and it was a cute little tree frog all swimming around. He was pretty much loving life. I turned around to make sure my dog wasn’t around (he loves to chase things), and when I looked again, the frog was gone. Gone! I flushed the toilet just in case he needed some extra help.

Fast forward to last night. The. Same. Darn. Thing. Happened. He’s back!

I went to the kitchen to grab some Tupperware to fish him out and when I returned, all I saw was his little foot swimming away. Ugh.

I closed the lid and went to bed. Thankfully I have two bathrooms.

It’s now Saturday morning. I went into the frog’s bathroom and lifted the lid. No frog. Yay! I flushed the toilet, you know  just in case, and guess what … a frog went flying down the toilet! Thank goodness I did this before I attempted to us the toilet … could you imagine??!! Ugh.

Perhaps this guy’s confusing my toilet with the pool at the Westin? Either way, I’ll keep you all posted. Ahh, island life.

  1. At the villa we rented last year, we pulled off the grill cover, only to discover a big, green frog. We used a spoon to guide him off of the grill, so we could cook. Every night, for 9 nights, he came back to the grill. He was beautiful ! Hope he’s back this year!

  2. Stayed up calabash boom our second trip I think it was. Low and behold 3-4 in the morning and and that huge ass frog jumped right out of the bowl from under me landed on the middle of the seat and none the less was wearing a cape!! Let’s just say I think STJ woke up to me and not the roosters that morning. Ahhh… 7 trips later I’d take the island life and frogs in the toilet anyway if it’s in STJ. Thank you for sharing this I think it is hysterical. Cheers

  3. While vacationing a vew years ago on Tortola I had 3 tree frogs in the toilet in our bathroom and a huge Cuban frog in the ourside toilet. Love island life !!

    We did have a tree frog in our shower one year up on Bordeaux Mtn. Love it!!

  4. On St Thomas I had an iguana that would come into the house for a bit. Frogs, lizards, iguanas….I think one of the may perks of island life.

  5. We had borh a gecko & a tree frog in our home on stj last winter. Tree frog lived in our shower, somehow fit in between a screen door & the wall. Impossible to catch but one day, during my shower I turned the shower head his way & he left. The gecko lived in a indoor palm & even had a bottle cap of water daily. From time to time he climbed a wall or scared me in the bathroom. Last day in the house, he was just outlined on a screen looking out. He let me remove the screen & put him out. I think most of his life was inside & he didn’t know what to do on our porch but after a bit, jumped on a chair & disappeared. Great house guest!!
