Tony, as you know, its tough living in IL, even if your a squirrel :razz:......
Sounds like he needed a "handout" before he would settle down :wink::biggrin:
Maybe it was a Secret Squirrel on a training mission ??
We also live in the woods and are surrounded by creatures of nature -- field mice, squirrels, chipmunks, coyotes, foxes, white-tail deer, raccoons, wild turkeys, fishers, etc. Only the fishers are a bit frightening.
I'm very careful about attracting wild critters of any kind. When I was a college student living in a fraternity, we had a baby squirrel who invaded the house. Of course, we all thought it was cute, and many of the brothers played with it. We fed it. It had a tendency to nip at our fingers.
Well, to make a long story short, it turned out that it had contracted rabies, and about 50 of the brothers had to go through the rabies-shot routine -- not fun.
A good rule of thumb, we were told, is "Don't treat wild animals as if they are or can become domestic pets. It is not good for them and not good for you."
I apologize for throwing a wet blanket on an entertaining thread.
Maybe tonight I'll leave National Geographic playing on the TV with a bowl of popcorn and see if any more show up. I'm thinking where's the one, there's more. Definitely have to hide the remote though, no surfing squirrel porn for those little dudes.
