And why I hate them....................
It started wayyyyyyy back when I was little and my dad had bird feeders..... my dad - my peace loving, kind, gentle father threatened to get a gun and shoot them as they fed from his feeders...........
THEN....... fast forward to a few years ago and coming home from work to find my house trashed........ thought I had had a break in....... I guess in a way I had had a break in.. there was a squirrel in my house trashing everything!!!
interesting facts I learned from the exterminator who was called to get rid of the squirrel living in my house - terrorizing my cats.......
1) they chew through electrical wires and cause fires
2) they pee everywhere they go - leaving a scent trail so they can find their way back
3) you have to completely sterilize your house once the squirrel is removed
Fast forward to this November........... we put up a very nice garland on our front stairs... (you can't see it - but there are artificial red berries and pine cones on the garland)
Two weeks after putting the garland up - TWO WEEKS! - every berry on both garlands had been chewed and ruined by our neighbourhood squirrel!!!!
And that is just the latest reason why I hate squirrels!
I want this for Christmas!!
