Squirrel Patrol

Some people think that cats have a life of leisure, but they don't know the hard work we perform. Why, just today, I had a big assignment from Dad: keep those squirrels from digging up our yard! We have jillions of squirrels around here and lots of those acorn trees. Instead of eating the acorns, those stupid squirrels keep digging holes to bury those nuts. As if they'd still be good to eat next spring! I think not! Anyway, Dad is trying to get grass to grow in the bare spots in our lawn and I'm helping by chasing those squirrels away. Like my battle with the coons, this looks like there's no end in sight. The squirrel army just keeps on coming, but I'm trying to do my best to keep the lawn squirrel free. It's exhausting--maybe I should just take a nap instead.

You need woofies to do that job for you. Then you can devote more time to naps.

Yeah, those squirrels are tough! I used to have to guard my old place from them. They were everywhere. The Neighbour guy used to ask my person to bring me out to chase the squirrels out of his garden.

Keep up the good fight!

And thank you, Bathsheba, for thinking I'm handsome. Is it ok if I send you headlicks and cheekrubs?

That is a serious job. Chase whishes he could get outside and do that but he just hast to be tormented by them from inside.

Oh, we are so jealous. We wish we had so many squirels. We had some, but they moved away. We were very sad about that, 'cause we liked watching them.

GM&T - Paid? Dad thinks it's enough that I get fed and have royal door service. I feel like a slave.

Rosie, thanks for the compliment. You're pretty cute yourself, kitten.
