We're very popular with the neighborhood rodents.

Got up yesterday morning to discover this fat little bastard demolishing the pumpkins on my front porch. I don't think I'll be decorating with pumpkins anymore. This was a damn mess to clean up.

Cute as all-get-out, though.

Jeez, that's one heavyweight sqwerl! has he been feasting at MacDonalds between pumpkins?

Hiya Kim - I think he may be the same sqwerl that had a field day on my sunflowers once they dropped off the stalk. Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds...our property is a smorgasbord!

Andraste, around Halloween I saw squirrels gnawing on the pumpkins and thought it carried a real zombie vibe.

That's one salad dodger of a squirrel.
Did you deep fry the pumpkin for him?

Chunky little scamp, I bet he loves your house.

Medbh - They really are cute. I don't know how anyone complains about them...

HQ - Long time! I suspect deep frying would have attracted a completely different sort of not think about it!

Sully - Our 'kids' (cats) loved watching this little guy. Don't know if you have cats, but when they're watching something like that through the window they make the funniest noises.

FMC - I have single-handedly caused an obesity epidemic in ALL our neighborhood rodents.

My cat makes the weird noise you reference at birds, but he was pretty blase' about the pumkin eating squirrels.

Our cat chatters at birds, squirrels, dogs, other cats...

It's a great sound, isn't it? Kind of goes "HA-ca-ca-Ha-ca-ca-ca..." And translated it means "Lemme get out there and KILL IT"

That's not a squirrel, that's Elvis.

LK - HEEEE! Should have guessed his true identity when he swiveled his furry hips and demanded a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich.
