Where the Wild Things Are

So, we are known to be a little soft when it comes to animals around this house. I regularly purchase seeds and nuts for the wild life that are rapidly losing habitat - even though that's on the strata no-no list, shhhh.

We are rewarded by frequent visits by birds, squirrels, raccoons, frogs, bees & yellowjackets and bats. Great for the garden and for our love of creatures. Taunting for our house pets who aren't keen on sharing their space (read KIRA).

On Sunday we were visited by a particularly pushy squirrel. (Incidentally I think it is the one who has been visiting for 2 years - but what do I know?) I have a planter on our fence that I use to hide nuts in during Fall & Winter, the squirrel emptied the planter 2x and he was fighting Stellar Jays the whole time. Kira was hyper alert and straining every muscle in her tiny, quivering body.

No lie.
On his hind legs.
Looking in the window.
Hitting the glass with his paws.

I tried really hard to get a pic of that - and of the window peeking - but it was pretty hard to control Kira and get a
non Sasquatch-shot of the jumpy squirrel at the same time. The best I could get was one of him on his hind legs checking for Jays before burying a nut under my lion next to the Lavender.

Oh - and you have got to go here to watch this video. You really have to.

hehe Watch out for those squirrels! They like to hide in your Christmas tree and then jump out and scare you when you're decorating. hehe
