Amfibian breakfast

This little creature gave me a slight scare this morning. As I was trying to jump start my mushy brain with some coffee this morning, I heard a banging noise behind me. I spun round and saw this Rana temporaria jumping up against the back door.
Poor thing. I couldn't quite fathom what was going on, still being very sleepy-eyed. I think it must have come in through the garage or something and during the night hopped up the stairs into the kitchen.
Mouser's bowl of water was all muddy, Kermit must have used it as a bed or something.
I had to shoo it out of the house. It abligingly hopped as fast as its tiny frog legs could carry it to the nearest moist grass.
