Last night (or I guess that was morning) my cat Keebler woke me up at 5:30 am to be fed. You know that cat thing they do – first they walk on you then meow a little then lick you then start kneading you with their claws. So I gave up and got up. Then Walden, the lab/golden mix, wanted out. So I let him out but didn’t turn on any outside lights. I noticed a “bump” on the side of our bird feeder. So I turned on the porch light and there was a little flying squirrel just looking at me. So I walked out on the porch and talked to him. He just watched me and listened. Finally I decided to see how close I could get and he flew away. They are so amazingly cute and amazing. No I didn’t get a picture but wanted to post one anyway.
