Today’s Saturday Squirrel may very well set a record for being the most far away and tiniest image of them all. You can just barely make out the telltale squirrel profile shape in the upper left corner of this photo. No doubt, you also noticed that this week’s sciurine guest is not alone as he takes a moment to munch of something in the middle of my street. While he doesn’t have to worry too much about getting crushed by vehicular traffic on my small cul-de-sac, there are still a number of dangerous forces out there that he might want to pay close attention to…. like, say, that cat in the foreground that seems to be eying up its next meal.
That’s our good friend Sewie (aka Buddha) surveying the situation to the right there. Sewie doesn’t just play a feared squirrel hunter on my blog, but from what I’ve heard, is actually an experienced rodent wrangler with at least one documented kill notched on his food bowl. While there’s still plenty of distance between these two critters from different spots on the food chain, it might serve our squirrel here well to take note of his surroundings and formulate an emergency escape route should it become necessary…
Sorry, Sewie. Here, have some cat food instead that’s made out of real, cage-free possums….
Have a great weekend everyone!
