A Few Shots of Happy Fall Sqirrels


For all you squirrel-lovers out there, interest has not flagged here. Oscar lives out of town but these handsome ones are no doubt some of his relatives. Cousins, I'd say.

They really are eating brownies. I found some stale ones and my crew have eaten chocolate croissant and granola and breakfast bars so brownies are not a stretch. Anything with chocolate is actually their favourite.

Blackie says that he's just as cute as those squirrels.

Almost Spring!

The squirrels were dashing about the back yard, happy in the warmth of our one-day Spring last week.

Since this last week of March 2012 started, however, we're back to winter. Water in puddles is frozen and our furry friends are huddled back in their nests waiting for the next blast of sun and warmth.

Hopefully,. they won't have to wait long.

Winter Squirrels are Doing just Fine

And they are eating well this winter. Today, they had apple peelings, carrot peelings, some bird seed and left-over bread.

I found some cinnamon pinwheels in the garbage, all wrapped in wax paper in a cookie tin, and they dined lavishly on these yesterday. I have saved some for tomorrow.

Yes, my rodents are doing just fine.
