|Squirrel Blake! I've been trying to catch one of those this past week! We don't always have them in the yard, but they occasionally visit from down the road (a guy has an acre or so of black walnut trees, and they always run through the fence and cross the road in that direction when I chase them- so we think thats their usual 'abode').
I was doing this half yip half bay thing under a tree the other day and Mom came out to see what it was I had up there (the usual suspect is a cat). But this time it was a squirrel, the first one we've seen this year. He came back the next morning around 5 a.m, and I charged up and down the stairs racing from window to window whining as loudly as I could while he hopped from tree to tree. Sadly, no one would let me out to chase it, even though I gave them my best 'desperate' look!
I had a variety of things to eat today.2 thawed sardines and a quail for breakfast, a frozen chunk of green tripe for a cool snack at noon, and beef, beef liver, beef lung and egg for supper.
