‘Domesticated’ Doesn’t Rule Out ‘Wacky’

What I really want to know is, how did the squirrel get inside the bird feeder, and how he expected to get out again.

The grey-and-white cat playing fetch reminded me of my own grey-and-white cat, Missy, who didn’t always like to wait for me to get out of bed in the morning before hopping onto my chest with a pipe cleaner and demanding that I throw it somewhere: a true devotee of the game.

  1. Many of the things animals do are totally logical, but occasionally they do things which must make sense to their perceptions, but not to ours. The jumping cat was great.

  2. I have a special bowl I feed the squirrels with consisting of corn kernels, whole sunflower seeds, and peanuts in the shell. But they still like to rob our hanging bird feeder because we feed the birds with sunflower kernels. The squirrels don’t get all the way inside, they just tip the lid so the seeds all go to one side (and it makes a mess – but the pigeons like it because they get to salvage the droppings on the ground).
