Saturday, I am grateful...
...for the interaction and expression between animals and humans. Sometimes, you can't help but smile at it!
What I am not grateful, however, is how this squirrel repetitively digs up my maple seedling on our balcony. I'm pretty sure the plant is dead now as it has been uprooted over and over again, scattered shells of peanuts in it's trail. I have a jack pine seedling that I'm scared to put outside because of this crazy squirrel. At least his fur has grown back. A few months back, it looked like he was only fur pants. We affectionately call him "Patchy". It chased me up the stairs the other day with a crazy look in his eyes...the feed-me-peanuts look that I know all too well. My mom is a crazy squirrel lady and when you fail to feed them, they will not hesistate to crawl up your legs for a treat.
Even though I am irked that this squirrel killed my plant, his expression was priceless when I took out my camera. And almost evil.
