As we entered the sunroom on the rear of the house, my client asked me, "Why are the window sills all scratched?"
She was right, the sill in front of each window was scratched terribly!
Well, look things over.
Can you see what happened to the sill here, and deduce why?
Hint: the house abuts a wooded area behind.
I said that this may be the sunroom, but it could also probably be called the four-legged woodland animal view room too.
Having her look out the window I surmised that a dog used to live here and had the best time watching out the rear windows for other mammalia to walk by.
When they did the dog would explode with the fun!
So, I expect that the woods have a variety of animals to see and enjoy! I suggested that my client have a chair out there for doing just that!
My recommendation: some things are easy to diagnose and some are not. And some diagnoses are easy enough to extrapolate out a step or two further than the initial indicator! The dog who used to live here will probably never have such fun again.
