We had a chipmunk living in the wood pile on the front porch all winter, very close to a bird feeder. How handy! The cats loved to go out and sniff around and yesterday Thisbe showed particular interest in the woodpile. No wonder! There were cat toys! This morning S.O. saw three little critters crouched around a hole by the sidewalk. He was able to get a couple of photos before they skedaddled back into their underground bunker.
The essence of cute. With all the predators about, I fear for the little tykes. They are so fat and sleek and frisky.
