THERE’S ALWAYS AN OVERACHIEVER AROUND…


5986 I am NOT stealing your birdseed (1 of 1)

IN ORDER TO OUTSMART THE SQUIRRELS, I SECURED THIS FEEDER TO THE UNDERSIDE OF A ROOF OVERHANG ON THE HOUSE.

RACCOONS? OUTSMARTED…

BIG, BAD SQUIRRELS? OUTSMARTED…

SMALL PINE SQUIRREL? DARN IT ANYWAY! NOT OUTSMARTED.

THIS LITTLE STINKER HAD TO BALANCE ON A HALF INCH IN DIAMETER ROD FOR A FOOT AND A HALF TO GET TO THIS FEEDER. 

MY BRAIN HURTS FROM TRYING TO OUTWIT THEM!!!!  

WHERE’S THE CHOCOLATE?

    1. Oh the cuteness is wearing off. Little stinker finally figured out how to access this feeder time after time. The problem is, in order to get off he has to take a great leap and there is just no way to land on anything. It’s a seven foot drop and I don’t want anything getting hurt…so…down came the bird feeder this a.m.

    1. I have waved the white flag. Eaten the chocolate. No more feeding the squirrels, etc. I have planted a butterfly bush and await the arrival of gigantic butterflies that will eat the entire house.

    1. I enjoy it sooo much. It’s just that they do a lot of damage to my garden and I like that also…they dug up a tomato plant that my daughter just planted. It was a special gift from a friend. 😦

  1. You might as well give up as someone will find a way in.

    On another note I had just arrived home last Saturday night at around 11.00pm. Here it is not quite dark at this time of the year and as I was going into the house heard foxes squealing.

    I went into the garden to find my cat being circled by a bunch of foxes. He was terrified but fortunately not badly hurt.

    I have now bought a shower radio which I will leave on if the cats are out and I wont be home until late playing BBC Five Live radio station. This is a talk station and foxes will not go near a place with human voices. Hopefully my cat won’t be terrified by foxes again. He was checked over by the vet and he is okay.

    1. OH MY GOODNESS!! I gasped out loud when I read this! How terrible for your cat (and you) to have those foxes ready to pounce! It was so fortunate that you arrived home when you did. The radio sounds like a very good idea….I hope those foxes never come back!

      1. They were like rabid dogsI suppose it was more frightening because we are not used to dangerous wild animals in the UK.

        In America and Australia you have dangerous wild animals so it may be something you are more aware of.

        Louis the cat is fine now. A bit scared to leave the house now and he tends to sit on the doorstep looking out into the garden.

        1. Louis is very smart! I don’t like living around dangerous animals…and we certainly do have them. My son was working out West and looked up to see a grizzly bear only 100 feet away from him. He backed away up the mountain and it left him alone. TERRIFYING to hear that as a mother!
