We had a squirrel who made a nest in the tree outside our dining room window last year. We thought he died because he suddenly wasn’t there anymore and there was a dead squirrel down in the path that leads away from our apartment. We didn’t know if it was the same squirrel but it could have been. We missed him and were kind of sad about it.
Well, you can imagine our surprise when this year not one but four jumpy squirrels moved into that old nest. The nest is just a bunch of leaves and sticks gathered up in the crook of some of the tree’s base branches. You wouldn’t think four squirrels could fit in there. But they do! We watch them come and go with their cute little bushy tails all day long. They jump from branch to branch providing endless entertainment for the cats and us.
Who needs dinner entertainment? Not us!
