Stop, Thief!


I basked in warm fuzziness toward wild critters all day—until I saw this!

    Wonder how far he got with that thing. (Or she?)

  2. Sammy says:

    Disappeared into the back yard; had no problem muscling it around. I probably wouldn’t have this problem if I had staked the tomatoes. On the other hand, the neighbors have staked theirs, and have more problems than I do with the birds. Also, with the number of ’maters we have getting ripe (probably at least three overnight), I guess we can lose a few to the rodents. Being neighborly and all that.

    The rodents have done much damage to my bird-seed barrel. Chipmunks are coming from two blocks away to raid the bird-seed. I see them crossing the street. The barrel was rodent-proof until they cut a hole in it with their evil teeth. The fox squirrels started the hole – the chipmunks finished the job.

  4. kayak woman says:

    Yeah, plenty o’ drama around these parts.

  5. Sammy says:

    Rodents are by definition busy creatures! Gotta keep those teeth in line! (And bellies full!) After all, “rodent” comes from the Latin rodere, to gnaw!
