Guess What I Saw Momma!!

My little boy, breathless and red faced, dashed in from outside. Bounding from one foot to the other, trying to talk through his excitement, he yelled for me.

"Momma, momma..... (long inhale)..... guess what I just saw!! It was Mother Nature, Momma......(inhale)... and she was dressed as a squirrel!"

Ah, to see the world through a child's eyes again.

The squirrels here are so much cuter than those back home. so much more squirrely.

What colour? We going fishing north of Sudbury and there are red ones up there. Just greys and blacks down in SW Ont. Real chatty types too the reds.

I never would have thought about the fact that the squirrels would be much different.

we have american grey squirrels at home. they're about twice the size, much bushier, entirely grey and much more confident.

we used to have red squirrels but they're isolated now, they're much more similar to what we have here in edmonton, but i dont think it's the same species

I've only ever lived around red squirrels. I had to chuckle, because 'Mother Nature' was right ticked that my son had the gall to be in 'her' yard. it was chattering its fool head off at him.

Alas, her fate is a bleak one, as she has been moving into the roof of our house.

twice the size, wow, that would be a big squirrel. lol. My cat, as it is, has a hard time wrestling these ones into being his supper.
