Like some people you may know, squirrels are voracious eaters. Because they often have their paws stuffed to overflowing with tasty morsels and cram the noms into their mouths faster than they could ever hope to swallow, squirrels are very capable of leaving a huge mess where they’ve been eating. Oftentimes, the scattered refuse is unwanted husks and shells from nuts and seeds that will litter the ground, marking where a meal had just been (mostly) consumed. This week’s featured Saturday Squirrel, however, had denuded this corn cob I put out for him and his buddies and strewn its formerly attached kernels all over my pretty backyard!
Hey, what gives, dude?
Yes I do, Messy Marvin! I’d like to know if you’re going to clean up that mess you’ve made under my tree!
Why, you unrefined little slob! I’d come down there and give you a stern talking to if….. if you weren’t so darn cute!
Sigh…. well, I guess I better go get the Dust Buster…
Have a neat and tidy weekend everyone!
