Olivia and I are working hard on our squirrel resolution. We all decided 2022 is going to be the year we capture one of those nasty tree rats. Believe me, we are mighty determined. Madison enjoys chasing them, but Olivia and I are very serious about it. We spent ten dollars of our own money to buy a bag of squirrel food. Hopefully with better food we will find more squirrels in our yard. It seems to be working better than the cracked corn and bird food we had before.
The problem is they hang out on the ground and other low places but when they see us, they scram. Squirrels climb trees and then hop onto another tree, or run along top of the fence. We can’t catch them. It is simply not fair!
Olivia enjoys sniffing the squirrel smell on the tree trunk. It is super fresh, so the squirrel cannot be too far away!
I can smell it too. The squirrel is not up in the tree, so he must have left the yard…again!
Darn you, tree rat! Where in the world did you go? Come back and tease us so we have a change to grab you by the tail! They are making me a bit cranky.
Olivia is checking the top of the fence. It appears the guy jumped from the tree to the fence and ran along the top of the fence for a distance.
The squirrel resolution we have is not going to be easy to accomplish but Olivia and I will do our best. She has a super nose and is very thorough. Rechecking the tree scent to make sure which direction the guy went is a great idea.
There’s nothing else we can do except track around and try to find a way to ambush the squirrels when they are not expecting us. The new food is a good investment as they love it and are coming by with friends. Now to set up a capture somehow.
