Tree Rat Watch

See that slidy door? On the other side is the screen porch or as the hoity toity say in Flori-duh, the lanai. Whatever that means. It's a porch and it's got screen around it. And there is a big ole Live Oak tree over on the right side...and in that tree live a family of SQUIRRELS!!!!!!

There wasn't a doggie door on the porch, so I added one myself one day when I'd had enuff of those tree rats. The Mr. replaced it, I put it back in. The baby Marine replaced it, I put it back in. The Mr. and the baby Marine replaced it 'special' and I put in a 'special door' the next day!
So now it's more like a doggie flap?

Anyways, these tree rats, they like to travel from the oak tree on the right to the palm trees that you can't see, way over on the left of the porch. And they like to hang onto the screen right under the edge of the porch roof.

I hear one now. Soon he'll come in sight.
Can you tell? I'm getting ready to launch myself out the slidy door.
Only problem is, the slidy door isn't open.

I've got a headache.

Oh I have those pesty squirrels at my house. WE have a big front porch with flower pots there. WHile I am on watch, they come up and bury their nuts in the pots and I just cant get to them when I am inside, they drive me crazy. Plus they sit there and stare at me cuz they know I am inside, just one time, if my mom would let me out!!!

Very resourceful. I have tried making my own doggie doors too, but am only able to push my big old head out.

Hehe, I do that too! Keep your eye on those squirrels.

Wooos! We have those too and real rats too! I think Mommy was laughing about you making a door in the lanai, I did too, now it is a sunroom with walls, no more screening.....

Those blasted squirrels. THey must be related to the ones that live here. Chester (my mom named him) sits there and absolutely taunts us. My big brother Mason trues to catch him, but sine he's not too good at the sneak-attack (he starts barking the second he's out the door), so I guess it's up to me to rid our yard of the pesterer! Good luck with yours!!
