And my Not so Little Friend...

OK.....maybe I should say my un-invited not so little friend.
I had just finished the last post, gone about my business, getting ready for kids to get home from school and the shuttling off to track meets and soccer practice right after....walked into the work area and lo and behold, I have even more company...
I think I am in the minority here, but I like squirrels! I think they are cute and this guy was small for a squirrel....think he may have been a young one....

AND he was driving my very cranky old cat bananas...for that kind of entertainment, he can eat all of the birdseed he wants.....

I wish I had video of this because Casey (the crotchety old cat) will sit and watch the birds very quietly from his little perch, daydreaming about catching them, I'm sure, but in true Garfield fashion, keeping all of the action in his head.
This squirrel, however, really got under his skin. Every move the little guy made was accompanied by a growl or a squawk (yes, a squawk!) from the cat....I had to laugh because there is not much that can get Casey so worked up...he sleeps and eats, not necessarily in that order, and that's usually about it...
Happy Friday, everyone!

Steph, I have the same problems with squirrels on my bird feeders too! I love them too but then don't like how much bird seed they can eat and the birds have to wait until they are gone before they can eat. But anyway, they are fun to watch.

hugs,

The photo of your kitty looking out the window at the squirrel is priceless! We have a "mama squirrel" who takes peanuts from our hands! She has been visiting us for many years and our adopted outdoor cat loves to watch her! I will have to post my photos of "mama." Stop by!
