    He didn't deliver any gifts and he didn't even pay 2 days rent either!:D:D:D


  • We had a dryer vent blocked by pinecones the squirrels were storing away for winter.
    The dryer repair guy said he had never seen anything like it.
    They are cute, but can really do some damage, if they get into the house/garage.

    No wonder Buddy chased him then 😃


  • Dan, good thing there were no hoses or electrical cords chewed up. Sharron is right, outside creatures that get trapped inside can wreak havoc due to feeling caged up.

    We have lots of squirrels that come to our yard to feed. However, since Kipawa has been running around the back, I notice the squirrel feeder needs less filling. Same with the bird feeder. So I guess we have a new company called "Kipawa Protection Services" working for us.


  • Never had a squirrel problem but I did discover 2 racoons in my laundry room this summer. Took the screen right off the window and came on in. Didn't turn out to be the little racoon love nest they hoped for!

    I've had raccoons come in through the dog door into the laundry room.

    Back in 92 I had a new cat that I rescued off the street. Apparently he lived off birds and such. When I got home from work there were little finch flying around in my house. I couldn't figure out how they got in until I came home to a pile of feathers on the kitchen floor. I have a bird feeder outside and he was catching ones on the ground feeding and then bring them in through the dog door then they would escape out of his mouth in the house. 😃 Wonderful cat I had for 16 years!


  • I had a squirrel get into my basement a number of years ago. I borrowed a live trap from my neighbour, baited it, and took it down to the basement. Low and behold, there was the squirrel sleeping in a space between 2 window panes (one of the interior ones was broken). Thought, what the heck, held the trap up against the window, and the squirrel jumped right in! How easy was that?!
    Took the trap outside into the driveway where I had left the dogs tied to the gate. (My previous dogs, including my border collie X basenji who could bark quite loudly!) Opened the door "just" out of reach of the dogs - who swiftly reminded the squirrel that he should run the other way as fast as he could and never come back! 🙂


  • I am going to quietly leave this thread before I go into long tirade about squirrels, evil squirrels, diabolic rats with tails squirrels, destructive squirrels….................................


  • I keep Billy the Exterminator on speed dial just in case.
