Every once in a while I start to get the feeling that my cats are planning something ridiculous. A big escape, maybe a plan to open up all the wet food and feast all day, or a plan to suffocate me in my sleep.
You know what I mean
Usually, they get tired, fall asleep and forget what they had planned. They have yet to actually go through with a plan.
Way too tired to go through with plan
Now, I’m convinced that the squirrels outside my apartment are plotting against me, seriously I have the worst luck with animals in this apartment complex.
When we first moved in I called Mason to tell him that a woodpecker (I named Phill) was trying to enter our bedroom. For some reason, Mason didn’t believe me until Phill had drilled a HOLE into our bedroom wall. It was so rude of Phill but he was very persistent, especially at 4 AM.
Picture of the hole (notice the sunshine shining right through the apartment?)
So Phill has moved on (bless him) but now the neighborhood squirrels are upset with me. See I’m convinced that the squirrels are mad that I took away their supply of tomatoes.
Every spring/summer I decide that I’m definitely a farmer and I can grow anything, and tomatoes are usually on the list.
What I didn’t account for when growing my tomato’s (and strawberries) was that the squirrels will come and do what I like to call a “taste test.”
They hop onto my patio pull off a tomato, taste it, and then say “oh.. I actually HATE tomatoes.” Then they drop the tomato and hop away. Only to come back 10 minutes later and repeat the process, always saying to themselves “oh yeah I don’t like tomatoes.”
So I’ve made a cage out of chicken wire to guard my precious fruits and since I did that the squirrels have gone crazy trying to get through the cage.
They have found out exactly where my head is when I sleep and they have started to dig holes INTO my roof. Seriously, they’re trying to come into my bedroom (it’s bringing back a lot of Phill memories).
Last night they woke us up and Mason and I moved to the spare bedroom, but that bed hurts my face (it’s really hard..) so I ended up on the couch.
Now it’s me against the squirrels. Yesterday I noticed that they bring nuts and crack them on the side of our apartment wall.
We have to sleep with ear plugs now, but I hate sleeping with ear plugs because they make my ears soggy.
(You definitely know what I mean)
So anywho this is what we’re dealing with this Easter week.
Just thought I’d share.
Please, someone, help me figure out how to make the squirrels happy..
Also, send me more earplugs.
Petrie ate mine.
– Happy Easter everyone, may yours be squirrel-less and peaceful.
P.S. The cats HATE the squirrels the most
