There's a new squirrel in the neighborhood...
In case you just found this blog and haven't gone through the YEARS of old posts, here's the story of the
~Squirrel Protection Agency and the Squirrel Bureau of Investigation~
~Part two of the story~
That brings us to a text convo from today:
Me: "There's a new stumpy-tailed squirrel."
DG: "Maybe they're related."
Me: "Maybe he's a witness to another Squirrel Mafia hit."
DG: "It could be. It COULD be. hmmm..."
Me: "His tail isn't AS stumpy as the other one, but it is definitely stumpy."
DG: "Okay. You keep an eye on things there."
Me: "Is that what you would do? Observe and report but not engage?"
DG: "Yes. The birds are narcs."
Me: "That explains why there are so many of them."
DG: "Yeah, and the bunnies."
Me: "What about the little chipmunks? [Christine asked]: Are they dealers because they're always saying: 'Izz goo-oood'?"
DG: "Damn, I forgot about them. The bastards."
Me: "I'll watch out for them too. You can't trust them, they're shifty."
Our squirrels don't stick around much when a human comes outside because we also have dogs (and the German Shepherd has actually caught a squirrel before), so if I can, I'll get a photo of the new squirrel. Odds are, it'll run as soon as the door opens, because you never know when Gypsy will conquer the Doorknob.
