Another darn squirrel blew my hydro out today. Great. I'm beginning to think that it may be a conspiracy.....

Wow... I can't believe they took out your electricity. That would make me a little crazy.

Down here we have a major problem with squirrels. At my old place there were actually roving squirrel gangs, and honestly 30 of them would show up. It was a little freaky.

Is there anything they can do to stop them from damaging stuff?

Squirrels are known for their devious conspiracies like eating through wires, rolling nuts across the attic floor, teasing the dogs and the cats, sassing passerbys, stealing odds & ends. You'll notice that even while swinging crazily from a wire, they look cool, very cool, like it's intentional.

I think Fluffy Stuffin' knows about squirrels. I don't know why I think this I just do. I'm not asking him in case he thinks I'm nuts. Go 'n ask him. He'll know. WTF am I on about?????

Sneaky little guys aren't they?

she said - this the second time in about a month that the darn squirrels have taken out the electricity for the whole block.
I have seen the roving squirrel gangs on tv. If that happens here, I'll have to arm myself. I'm telling ya, these guys are up to something.

diana - You're right! They do look very cool. Unfortunately for this squirrel, he doeasn't look too cool now. He touched 2 wires at the same time and fried himself. He is now completely hairless. And dead.

dilling- It might be the next Biddie novel........

heidi - You know how much I love all animals...Even I have my limits...There was no need to bbq the poor little guy..he was already fried.

4D - So you think that I should ask him and maybe he'll think I'm nuts?!

cindydianne - Ass-Hat conspiracy

ldbug - I'm telling ya, they're out to get me...

once worked at a playgroup and we had squirrels in the loft, the kids thought it was great, me i was scared stiff! hated opening up in the mornings used to make loads of noise to scare them off!

her indoors - I'm not afraid of squirrels...Well, I am if they're planning something sinister.....

Nonny said...

Damn! Could you be any cuter? I'm getting the fact that "hydro" has something to do with water, but how does a squirrel blow out your hydro exactly?

Life, or Something Like It said...

nonny- you always make me smile! The stupid squirrel was stretching across two wires outside, and ZAP! was fried. He looked like a rat, he had no hair left at all...Poor little guy. I keep thinking that his little squirrel family is waiting on him to come home with his stash of chestnuts...Now I'm sad....

ldbug said...

There's a creepy squirrel that hangs out on the next door neighbors roof looking in our window all the time! Peeping Tom...

It drives my cat crazy!

Life, or Something Like It said...

ldbug - watch out!!! Who knows what he could planning?

melanie said...

hey i hate to say it but... cant you trap those little peskers? squirrels/rats/pigeons/seagulls, all in the same category for me... If we could eat em, then poor homeless people wouldnt be starving, and they couldnt torture your electricity...

so, what we going to do today brain?

Gardenia said...

ahhahah, I'm sorry - I'm getting the pic in my mind of the squirrel electrocuting himself - and its not a bit funny, but a hairless fried squirrel - sounds like he ought to be taken directly to the Road Kill Cafe and recycled. Ooops gotta go - Cat just stole my chicken breast - I can't eat it now, but she is NOT getting the pleasure either.

Life, or Something Like It said...

melanie - I can't possibly trap the little devils, they aren't even on my property. The dang squirrels are across the street and causing all of this damage. I love animals and I don't want to bother them...I just don't want them bothering me....

Life, or Something Like It said...

diana - actually, it was kind of funny. As an animal lover, I can't even believe that I am saying it...

You should prop him up on your porch with one hand pointing to the wires and the other holding a sign pointing out the squirrelly dangers to others.

Camie Vog said...

I am sure it is a troop of hydro terrorists sent out by the company...

Life, or Something Like It said...

Tod - I hadn't thought of that!! Too funny. I can just picture it now. Maybe for Christmas I could dress him up in tinsel, or wrap lights around him?

Camie vog - You scoff, but it could be true! Paranoid is just good thinking when everyone is out to get you!
