Time for a change... I think this sums me up pretty well:
Things tend to turn out well when you worry, so that's probably good. - EmP
I still <333 wolves, though.
Title: Squirrels! =D Posted: March 13, 2009 (02:29 PM)
I love squirrels. I don't know why, but I'm sure some of it had to do with the baby pet one we kept in our backyard for a few weeks. He was so cute!
And the younger, better image...
Aw... Isn't he adorable? My mom named him Walter (Wally) after some character in Lost or something... because of the circumstances we found him in. Or he found himself in.
We eventually had to let him go, and I was kind of sad, but it was a squirrel, and the poor thing didn't seem very happy cooped up first in the fire pit under our grill (we kept it clean! and it wasn't used during that time, either), or the cage we ultimately moved ihm to. And after aboout a week, he became super timid because we think he was attacked by a raccoon at one point who was trying to scavenge some of his food (we really did put too much in there...), and it managed to knock the cage over in the process (which wasn't supported by anything other than a couple of garbage cans. The first image was not the cage's main location).
And today, I played with a squirrel. I was walking back from this test earlier, and I saw a squirrel in the middle of the sidewalk looking/sniffing around as if searching for food. Well, in my experience with squirrels, I discovered that clicking at them seems to get their attention, if not necessarily draw them towarrds you. So, in a mood fool around, I hunkered down and started clickng at it. I soon found that repeatedly doing so in spurts made it come closer. Perhaps it thought I had food, and maybe my ungloved outstretched hands made it think this as well, because after a few moments, it came close enough to where I could almost touch it (I was afaid to do o because it startled at sudden movement and was inclined to back away), then nibbled my finger. Discovering it unappetizing, it was less inclined to stay around, so my further attempts to draw it closer and touch it were in vain as it slowly started backing away. Eventually, it gave up on me altogether and ran up a tree.
It was cute.

Squirrels are easily the cutest animals.

They were all over our last campus. Big fat ones, too.
