For the past week or so I have had the most irritating squirrel issues at my studio! There has been a squirrel that has been clawing her way INTO my gutters and inside my studio roof, at the point which is directly above my head and right outside my window, of COURSE! And it's been really warm out, right? And I didn't have my screens in yet because we JUST finished the studio, like last week practically....so I have been hanging out with the windows open, sans screens, all free-like. Until Mrs. Squirrel was scritching her way into my house, and I'd yell out at her to knock it OFF... which only pissed her off, I think. We made some very aggressive eye contact! I refused to back down, even though I was staring straight into the sun and searing my eyeballs- because isn't there some rule about eye contact and animals and dominance or something?? Or is that only dogs and goldfish....
...in any event, all of this racket has been driving me, Amanda and Robin CRAZY not to mention absolutely destroying my nerves in the process! I am a jumpy gal anyway, so this is just forcing me over the edge.
So after hearing the poor little thing crying all day today I begged Dave to cut a hole in my wall to free the poor thing. Talk about CUTE! And I am not a fan of squirrels, honestly. No offense to the squirrel lovers in the house...! So I see this little hole and Jack and Dave are trying to feed it a carrot and BAM, his little paw comes darting out to grab the mutant carrot we were offering! How cute is THAT??
Of course I took come video that I am planning on posting of this poor thing running all over my awesome stair railing, which are made of trees, by the way, talk about confusing this poor thing!
...and did I mention there is one more stuck inside??
