>While I was hiding in the bathroom on a snowy day, this little furry creature came running up the lilac bush right outside the window. I laughed out loud – so loudly I gave away my hiding place and Amigo called to find out what was so funny.
My new little fuzzy friend then slipped and slid down the tree, eventually grasping a branch for dear life. At one point even the tail was wound around the branch for balance.
>They are the funniest creatures to watch! We don't have enough cover in our back yard to see one often…we have to go in the woods to watch squirrels.
>I have learned to hate squirrels. Did you know they can live for 9 years?! We live in a wooded area and have dozens of them in our yard. This summer one of them figured out how to get from the roof to my kitchen window and ate/chewed through the screen. I found him on the counter. Since then I've had to keep the window closed. They are very smart, quick learners and he's tried several times to get back in. Sorry to rant.
