We have a juvenile squirrel who is- I hate to be this obviously punny– making the cats nuts.
He (no idea but going with “he”) is consistent in his visits which are loud as he thrashes around from fence to feeder to tree etc… Being quiet is not on his skill list yet, and he falls off whatever he’s climbing more often than not.
Yesterday, he had Birdie racing window to window as he alternated feeders around the house.
Even Sookie was up in furry, frustrated arms!
Sookie rarely has anything to say, but yesterday the squirrel had her fired up.
I think this translates to: “Get out now! I am a tiger who will eat you!”
With a angry follow up (She learned the banging on the window and profanity from me): “I said get the fuck out NOW!”
Today he was back in his usual spot on the fence and I happened to be in the yard doing my morning perimeter check. He hid when I approached, hanging upside down on the other side of the fence.
Wanting to see how stealthy he would be, or what would provoke him in to biting me, I took some paparazzi style photos over the fence.
This did not last long and he ultimately fled the camera. He’ll be back.
