  1. love the sound effects you were making… also, thought it was amusing that you had to reassure people you weren’t hurting the squirrel. Obviously, you are animal lovers and not squirrel haters. They are opportunists and will take advantage. I always enjoyed their antics and never really minding feeding them. I did not appreciate their chewing of good feeders, however. Would choose my old squirrel neighbors from my old house over the trashy people who live next door. ;-(
