There is never a bad time to snack. Although don’t tell many moms that. Visiting neighbors have always stopped by and checked out what’s available, sometimes even saying thank you. And it’s always good to wash that snack down with a beverage.

    I used to put out expensive unsalted peanuts for the Jays & Cards but the booger squirrels would shimmy down the cord and snatch them 🐦 I guess they don’t know the meat cooler at the store is near empty during this epidemic ❗️

    Love the wildlife! Squirrels are little rascals, but they are so cute! I especially love the one at the blue dish; he looks up to no good!

      Allison, It is a water bowl that they and my cats use outdoors during the winter. When the temperature gets warmer, I use a non-heated one. My cats have gotten better and just watch them geet a drink and not chase them. Took a while to get them over that. Working on the neighbor cats that visit. Jerry
