Provident squirrels? Fallen fruit suggests otherwise

When crab apples fall, the hazards on the walk are our responsibility. The feckless squirrels can’t be bothered. They’d rather spend time showing off their talent for climbing and leaping, depending for their winter nourishment on our filling the bird feeders, from which they shamelessly poach.

In the house, a game of cat and mouse

I’m quite fond of our cat, Laika, and grateful for her talent and her dedication. I only wish she weren’t so inclined to flaunt her successes. A cold mouse under a bare foot on a nighttime bedroom floor is not conducive to untroubled sleep.
