We have lived in our community now for 5 1/2 years without seeing a squirrel. Mainly because there are more palms then there are “regular” trees. But, outside of the community and beyond the fences, there are many trees and they are slowly making their way into our area.
Last night, as Glenn was smearing me in a game of Scrabble, the dog was really checking out the lanai. I turned to look and there he was!! That rat with a tail was hanging off of the hook that my bird feeder hangs on and enjoying a little snack not intended for him.
I pecked on the window and he just gave me that squirrel look, while at the same time, stuffing his mouth with bird seed. I went outside to scare him off and the fight was on. The dog was going nuts, the squirrel was barking at me and I was waving my hands all over the place. The squirrel just hung onto the screened in porch and laughed. (He also tinkled all over my screen) Finally, after a few minutes of calling each other names, he ran off.
So, I guess now I am going to have to figure out a better place to hang the bird feeder to keep that pesky rat with a tail out of it.
Everyone have a great weekend,
