A while back I read that squirrels need fresh water, and summer was approaching, so we got a water bottle from the pet store and fitted it to the tree. I wasn’t sure they’d take to it, but yesterday evening Buster dropped by for a long drink.

We’ve also had a visit from a mother squirrel who was obviously taking a break from nursing. Unfortunately, Blacktip turned up and stared at her, and she shot up the fence and vanished.

We had a pretty good crop of corn this year, thanks to our furry four-legged gardeners. Fortunately, it pulls up pretty easily.

You know that infamous squirrel picture found all over the Internet? It wasn’t modified with Photoshop, as I had assumed. It’s a genuine stock photo available from Corbis.
