Whatever Hits Me - Squirrel Hunting Update
As soon as I finished yesterday's article, I walked downstairs through the living room
and heard a little shuffle noise that shouldn't be there. Turning the lights on, I saw the
little squirrel that has invaded our space on this earth. He or she was sitting on top of a
book case about eye level. I was within five feet of him. I will call it a him to shorten the
typing.

He was staring me down and I was staring him down. He is about half grown at best. I
thought of my bug net in the garage that we use to catch flying aquatic insects. It has
an 8 foot handle and would be perfect for capturing the squirrel. I slowly backed away
and headed to the garage. Angie has rewired the lighting to fit her needs and I could
not figure out how to turn the overhead lights on. I could not find the net in the dark,
so, I grabbed a bath towel in the dirty clothes basket and decided I would throw it over
the squirrel and then quickly grab it. I didn't think it could bite me through it if I did
everything just right but later, I figured that could have been a big mistake.

I approached the squirrel still sitting atop the book case slowly to within about three
feet of it and tossed the bath towel over him like a cast net. He instantly darted out
from under it and sailed across the room to the point I wondered if it was a flying
squirrel. It shot up the stairs and turned left at about 75 miles per hour. I followed and
noticed that since the left side upstairs bedroom door was shut, he had to be in the
dressing room at the end of the hall. It is a ladies dressing room with makeup cabinets
and a large mirror, etc., with no place for the squirrel to hide. Off the dressing room is
the upstairs air conditioning room which has a large space beneath its louvered
door. I opened the door, and there he was, staring me down again, but this time he
could get back behind the a/c unit and duct work. There is no way to get to him.

Last night, we sat one of Biddies combination dog food and water bowls in the dressing
room. We put a little dry dog food, which Biddie won't eat, and a few Apple Jacks in a
trail from the a/c room to the bowls. When I got up this morning, I noticed he ate every
one of the Apple Jacks but not any of the dry dog food.
We now officially have a
Apple Jack eating pet squirrel that I'm very afraid will bite Biddie who, if given
a chance, will try to grab the little squirrel.
So, I guess we will continue to isolate
Biddie and the squirrel until I become a better squirrel hunter. My grocery bill will also
probably increase.
