peanut

Came home just briefly midday today to find this baby squirrel at the top of my steps. Lucy and Doo were going "nuts" looking out the front door at him. He wasn't moving much so I put a few peaunts out to see if they would entice him. He didn't touch the peanuts, but when I came home again today he was gone, so I'm hoping he was reunited with mom (cats were left inside!). He blended so well with the walkway that I almost didn't see him.

 

Much to my surprise, this little fella made front page of Explore on 5/1/07. Golly, thanks, all!
