Squirrley McSquirrel has indeed gone WILD! Our cute little Mama Squirrel knew where we kept the peanuts (in a plastic coffe container in the corner by the slider to the balcony). Well, I came home two days ago to find a small hold near that container in the screen!!!! Glad I got home before she got inside!!!
That evening Ron decided to move the peanut container into an old glass container we have out on the balcony so she could SEE the peanut container, know it was outside and not try to get into the house anymore. Sounded reasonable enough to me.
We did not think that those little hands and that little brain would be able to get into the glass container and even if she did, certainly not into the plastic coffee container that has a lid on it!!!! Well, we got up this morning to find the door to the container open and the lid OFF the coffee container.
This photo was taken through the screen, but you see what we found! And notice the bite marks on the top of the cabinet!!!! There was no stopping Mama Squirrel!!!
I closed the top to the container and then closed the doors again. Within minutes I had an extremely angry Mama Squirrel screaming at me!!! She continued for about 15 minutes before getting back to work, opening the cabinet again!!!
I think we may have to let her empty it out and then NOT refill the container so we don't have to deal with her eventually getting inside the house!!!!
There are dozens of squirrels in the trees, but she is the self proclaimed Queen of the Balcony and chases all others off! She is also the only one that has managed to get into the glass container!!!
A squirrel with a brain that is larger than the average squirrels!!!!
