To Catch a Thief...

This little guy frequently raids the bird feeder, but gosh, he's cute. We don't have a lot of squirrels around since we've done some clearing and lost so many pines to beetle kill, so I don't mind having him (her?) around. He devotes most of the time he spends hanging out around the woodshed to tormenting Molly and Lucy. Molly's not the best hunter yet, but she's starting to bring some dead mice home. We once had a cat (Abigail, who was also black, and had a horrid wailing voice) who left a squirrel tail on the back doormat every morning for weeks.

Hi Karen,

Thanks for the tip on that book. I think I'm going to WL tomorrow so I'll have to check it out!!!!

Our squirrels have all vanished. I think something has picked them off! I miss my little "Chit" even though he did raid my bird feeder regularly and was flat out cheeky about it all.

Keep checking those things off your list!

TTFN ... Cis

is that squirrel very . . .fat? He(she?) looks a little chubby. Hmmmmm....too much bird seed?
