Cheeky bastard!

February 11, 2014

Pea just alerted me to the squirrel’s vicinity to the tree with our freshly-hung bird snacks.  I ran over to check it out, and the bastard* had already jumped up and removed an entire cookie for himself.  (Knots tied with frozen fingers aren’t squirrel-proof?)  He paused to sample a few bites and then took off running with it in his mouth.  He disappeared under the fence with his prize and it was all over in 15 seconds.  It took 7 hours before we lost the first one.  Wagers on how long before the tree is bare?

The cookie he stole?  The squirrel-shaped one.  Honestly.


*Squirrels, especially Madison squirrels, and I have a history.  We are not friends.
