Our Roommate, George. Sr.

This is George, Sr.  He has been living with us since we moved into our apartment in July of 2010.  I assume he was living here first.  For a long time I couldn't figure out how he was getting in and out of our apartment, as I would see him on the wall outside our door.  Then one day I saw him squeeze through the window frame and push the bottom of the screen open.  He's a good roommate, aside from the occasional poop I find because he eats bugs.
