This is our new pal Squirrel. We first noticed him in May, when he and some other young squirrels were hanging out in our backyard. There's a squirrel nest in the neighbor's tree next to our garage; we think they were from a litter there. Anyway, he's the one squirrel that just stays in the yard while we're walking around and talking. Just goes about his business.
So one day I decided to talk with Squirrel. I made these clicking noises with my tongue in the side of my cheek. It's the same noise I made to call Bastet, and she always came when she heard it. So I clicked 3 times real quick, and Squirrel came running over. eek!
Squirrel comes around once or twice a day, that I notice. If I see him across the street and "click," he comes running over! We will give him a couple peanuts, maybe a shelled walnut. Today he stopped by so I ran inside to get him some nuts. I set the nuts on the porch for him and then went on with my yard work. He ate the nuts, then lay "spread eagle" on the front porch: belly down flat with legs spread out! His front paws hung over the side of the porch and he just lay there watching me for about a minute and a half.
