Those who visited us on Wordless Wednesday were super surprised to see Astrid and Lisbeth totally ignoring a squirrel climbing the screen on the catio. We have four squirrels living in our trees. One or more are here everyday eating from the bird feeders and generally hanging out.

We are not oblivious to the squirrels. They watch us through the kitchen windows, and we chirrup at them. Or we observe their antics through the screen.



“i’m watching you, squirrel.”



The stare down.


We see the squirrels everyday, and have become a bit impervious to their presence. And we are cats: Expending a lot off energy to pursue something we can’t get just isn’t in our natures. That’s not to say that we don’t give them cause to turn tail now and again when we are feeling frisky.

Since we started blogging nearly three years ago, we have done several posts about squirrels and shared lots of photos of them, many including one or more of us. You can enter squirrel in the “Search” box at the bottom of our sidebar to see any of those past posts.

We’ll be sharing more of our furry friends in the future, especially on Squirrel Appreciation Day in January.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
