And the sage said unto them, “Behold, there are old squirrels, and there are bold squirrels, but there are no old, bold squirrels.” —Cat Wisdom of the Ages
I’ve often wondered why, if you have a pet door that lets your cat or dog go out or come in, that the odd possum, skunk, or squirrel doesn’t come in, too. You’d think it’d because to invade a house full of cats or dogs would be, well, suicidal. But watch this freakin’ squirrel try again and again to get into the house through the pet door–with the cat standing right there in plain sight! I would love to ask that squirrel what the dickens he was thinking.
P.S.–Our mayor just called to tell us that a state of emergency has been declared in advance of the predicted big-mama snowstorm. I don’t know if there’s any penalty for declaring a state of emergency and then nothing happens. Well, we shall see.
