It's nuts!

We are so ready.
Hello! Here in Baltimore, the weather has finally turned crisp and chilly in the early morning. And that means it is now almost our second favorite time of year! Can you guess what that is?
We are a well-oiled stalking machine.
Here's a hint, our prey is so focused on other matters that they barely notice our stealthy approach.

Squirrel crazy-time! They are so busy gathering nuts that they run into us, the street (with dire consequences) or once, up our mom's pants leg! We never get to actually catch one, alas, because we are tethered to our human. But it doesn't keep us from enjoying the chase!

Hey! Nice to meet you. Cammie and Zim sent me your way.

I think the squirrels are super nutty this time of year and sadly, on many mornings we see some of the ones that just weren't skilled enough to safely cross the busy roads.

Of course momma is quite worried about them eating all the birdie food she puts out.

Kisses,
Dexter

Oh, boy, we know that time of the year well! Down in our neck of the Maryland woods, there are tons of bunnies. We can't decide if we like squirrels or bunnies better.

Oh. Sorry. I think you know where I'm coming from, though.
Happy hunting!
Cammie!
