    I sure do appreciate all the bird food the 3 squirrels in my back yard are able to eat. :rolleyes:

    I also appreciate than none of them have gotten in the house yet.;) You have far more patience that I do, Frank.

    I didn,t appreciate him this morning as I grabbed him to put him in his cage for a few minutes as I did something . he got mad an didn,t want to go as I had ahold of him,didn,t take me long to let go as he put the real teeth chattering squirrel bite on me:eek::confused:. he then took off running as I went for the squirrel stick as he,s not the only one with a temper . he decided to hide till I calmed down ,then came up to me like he did no wrong :p

    My little buddy has to be close me most times.i get him a couple cashews every morning from the can an put them in my mouth to get the salt off them . he knows I have them there an sits on my chest waiting,so I started just sticking the tit of the cashew out of my mouth an he grabs it real gentle an pulls it out an eats it sitting on my lap :p I would be bored to death this time year if my little buddy wasn,t here . I got him trained to jump off the top of the kitchen cabinets .all I have to do is extend my arm look at him an hold my hand out an say jump an he jumps right on :p he,s like a sheep dog as I tell him get the 2 cats an he will round them up one at a time an chase them up the steps :D

    That's too cool!
    I was severely scolded by the squirrel living in my shop yesterday as I was working on the wife's Camry.
    ... guess I was making too much of a ruckus, she popped her head out of a hole in the insulation and chattered away at me.
    I don't mind the foul mouthed tennant's ... they's better than the foul smelling tennant I had last Year.
    ;)

    With the dog around, they'll stay in the rafters or book it for the trees. This one was a little more challenging, must've had a litter she was protecting as I noticed that the skin on some cardboard boxes was torn away and the collar on my welding jacket had been chewed up. Looking for nesting materials no doubt.

    Careful ... I saw a little video on Facebook about how squirrels enjoy fermented fruit ... not for taste,
    to get hammered!! Appears they can have issues ... :)
