Okay.  Do you remember the squirrel that we caught in the cage up in our attic? Well, the day after our little furry friend was released at the park…3 new furry friends moved in!



At first we thought that maybe these 3 squirrels were the family of the one that we took to the park and that somehow we had orphaned these 3 squirrels.  But, I don’t think that is true anymore.  I think the one that we released in the park was keeping those 3 squirrels away.

As I write this at 6:15 in the morning…the 3 little pains in our butts are sitting on the tip of the roof…talking about stuff…one has a nut in his/her mouth.  They are swishing their tails looking like they are having the BEST LIFE EVER!!!!

Yesterday at around 2:00 in the afternoon…I was on a call with a client…when I heard all of this clammerin above my head. They had decided that it was time to rearrange the furniture. By last night…they were fighting about the furniture placement. By early this morning, they seemed to have resolved the conflict and decided a fun game of tag was next on the list.  For the next handful of hours (between 1:00 and 3:00 AM) they were running from one end the attic to the other…when they needed a snack…they chewed on wood beams.

At 2:30 AM, I thought maybe I could stop them from making so much racket…so, I threw a rolled up sock at the ceiling…(Hey!  It WAS 2:30 in the morning…I wasn’t thinking clearly!!!).  Well, that did not have much impact on their frolicking and general loud noise making.  In fact, I don’t think they even noticed!

So, instead of one squirrel…we have three.  Instead of one noisy critter clammerin about….we have three.

I can’t believe that I am saying this…but….I can’t wait for it to get hot outside…cuz then they will move on out and we can plug up the hole that they are using as a door.  Until then…these are gonna be some long long long nights.
