Keep the toilet seat down

We all know to keep the toilet seat down to keep pets and kids from accidental drowning. Another reason to do that is to prevent something that happened to us. We are caretakers of resort houses. At one, we went in to do our weekly check on things and to freshen up, I lifted the lid on the downstairs toilet and a drowned squirrel was in it. After I ran around the house screaming my husband caught me, found out what was wrong, and retrieved the poor thing. Moral, if the lid hadn't been down imagine what damage would have been done by a mad, wet squirrel. Our theory is it had fallen in or went down the vent pipe on the roof.
