Raider of the Fruit Basket


I begin to have territorial stirrings. The fruit basket is deep within my home... a good 10m from the row of trees behind my backyard. Who would have thought that squirrels would have the gumption to penetrate deep into the house to raid the fruit basket? But there it is... a tiny squirrel, the size of Mr Bean's teddy bear. I was sitting scarcely 6m away but it obviously considered me harmless. "Pouf! That one there... she runs too slow... nothing to be afraid of!!" said the squirrel to his friend.

To be sure the huge fruit basket we have (filled with oranges, bananas, apples and pears) must have seemed to the squirrel all bathed in the golden glow of fruity goodness.The squirrel must have been mesmerized and completely helpless to resist the Pull of the Fruits. I'm not sure what to do now. I don't mind sharing a fruit or 2... but what if this mammal drops fleas in my home... or sips from our water pot... or worse, brings its whole family to have breakfast here every morning.

How ah?

Petunia, I understand and sympathize about your squirrel situation, however, I'm captivated by your reference to Mr. Bean's small teddy bear! I found Mr. Bean years ago on our public broadcasting system (PBS), he is so very funny!
