5+x-1 Squirrels

Our house in the woods is the unwilling host to squirrelish rodentia. I watched with a sick fascination from our bathroom window one morning as one, two, three, four, five fat squirrels leaped from a hole in the siding to the adjoining tree branches. (Not that we don’t hear them, terrifyingly there, morning and evening, because let me tell you, we do). We’ve been waiting for them to give birth, which we think they now have, before trying to get rid of them. Today, through patient ethical trapping by Josh, we have 5+x-1 squirrels. #ethicsiswaning #getthemout #fasterfasterfaster
