I thoughtlessly placed a small orange rug on the floor. Little did I know it resembled "Rug of the Living Dead"! My goose Keld was scared stiff of it. He stopped several feet away from it and started whimpering. And there he stayed for half an hour, poor goose. Well, a little dry cat food on the rug did the trick - he cautiously got closer, but soon his appetite overruled his fright, and he entered the rug gulping down the kibble. Ta-daaaa!
