I now wish to report that the match stands at Squirrel 2, Me 0.
Today, however, I bought a really, really long S Hook at Wild Birds Unlimited and hung the feeder from a high limb on the aspen tree just outside my front window. It's far from the trunk, a scary climb down the hook, and nothing to hold onto. I'll report back later!!
(But just to show you I'm not heartless, I did put some seed and a seed bell in the tray feeder for Ms. or Mr. Squirrel. Maybe I'll buy some peanuts too.)
The other critter story is about my Katie Cat who has developed a fun activity for when she's bored and no one wants to play.
She pulls books out of my bookshelves onto the floor, then gets on the shelf and pushes out a few more, then walks away from the mess.
It goes like this:
Hard at work
Need to dump a few more. See the one falling (near the floor)?
See her peering from the top shelf, waiting for my reaction, happy with her work?
Katie's books from the living room bookshelf.
She also spent a little time with the books in the den.
As you can tell, I have a lot of books. Three bookcases plus piles of books on the coffee table. Most of them are books I haven't read yet, but a few are keepers. By the way, Katie highly recommends that one in the top photo, Mariano's Crossing by David Jessup. It's an excellent historical novel set in Northern Colorado.
Now I need to go pick up all those books and put them back on their shelves.
