They are getting so fat!
I feed squirrels near a tree out in front of the house every day. From the looks of these guys, I'm going to have to build a squirrel-gym so they can start working out.
Yep, they are getting just a bit chunky. There are only a few out there this morning, but iI get upwards of a dozen out there in the afternoon when I put fresh corn and bird seed out.
My cat Louie loves to sit at the front window and watch them. I know he's thinking to himself "Lunch!"
And you know...I could make one heck of a big pot of chowder if I had a mind to...but I'd rather just enjoy watching them frisking about in the yard. Unfortunately, I don't get any of the albino squirrels here in my yard that our town is famous for. Haven't seen any of them in the yard for a few years, although a neighbor down the block has a pair that frequent his feeder.
