New Evidence of a Rodent
Posted by Sharkey
Franny and I were in our blog studio, editing some recent photos, when I got up to stretch and look outside. I was very interested to notice that after we entered the studio, something had made some changes to the door stoop outside. This is a farm, after all, and there are critters galore!
1 Here I am in the blog studio looking at a new bit of a mess on one side of the stoop.
2 Look at that! It's a pile of sunflower seed hulls. The seeds were no doubt pilfered from the bird feeding area!
3 And look at this on the other side of the stoop! Yuck! Small animal droppings! I smell a rat, or perhaps another type of rodent.
4 Well, looky, looky here! The guilty party is a chipmunk. I would so like to pounce, but I'm in here and its out there.
5 I wonder why its just sitting there? Maybe chipmunks like to bask in the sun, too.
6 Whoa! I suppose that now little Chippy knows I'm watching! Chipmunks are shrewd little creatures and they're faster than squirrels.
7 And just like that, he's gone.
8 I suppose he escaped to his little burrow under the stoop. Martha's not so happy that they live under there, but there's not much that anyone can do. Bad tenants are difficult to deal with.
9 Especially whey you're stuck indoors with a heavy glass storm door in your way!
