Tip of the Day - Squirrel Food

These gloves are, or should I say "were", for doing battle with rose bushes. They look like they have been through a battle alright, however it wasn't with rose bushes!!

Yesterday I was cleaning up my new storage area, which is a big bench with a lift-up top, and discoved many mouse turds and these destroyed gloves. My husband declared them to be squirrel turds and since we have squirrels running all over the yard this year, I was willing to agree with him.

So the tip comes in that one shouldn't put nice leather gloves where your cats can't protect them. See, the cats roam around immediately outside the bench but they can't get into it. So as long as the squirrel can get into the bench, it is safe.

Wait a minute! How does a squirrel get by two outdoor cats to get into a bench which is right up against the house? Hmmm, time to have a serious talk with the cats. Or maybe it is time to get a new (and hungry) cat.

Or maybe what we should be doing is fattening up the squirrels.....

Darn Squirrels. I didn't know they would eat gloves. Maybe they are just evolutionary cousins to goats.

Aaaaah squirrels! they are everywhere! I really was suprised at just how many there where roaming around the yard. they have obviously realized that our cats are becoming senior citizens who dont really feel the need to impress us by leaving squirrel tails on our door step anymore. maybe mom you should threaten to fire them or send them to an old catss home, maybe thne they will shape up! who knows.

for christmas my sister gifted me a bottle of oily red liquid labeled "flaming squirrel," and sporting a comic rendering of a squirrel with flame shooting from mouth and ears. very cute. made from habanero peppers for use on birdseed and bulbs as pest deterrent. seems to work. maybe even on gloves?
