A friend of mine has been rehabilitating injured squirrels.
She feeds them in her yard and every now and then, a squirrel shows up recovering from a nasty wound or injury.
I started thinking of my own park-like backyard.
Our yard is shaped like a slice of pie, with lots of acreage in the backyard.
Many creatures call it home, including birds, rabbits, squirrels, skunks, coyote, possums and snakes.
The other day, a squirrel sat on our picnic table, licking water off its surface and that got me thinking. . .
Maybe I should put food out for our little critters.
It would be nice to look out the window and see my wild “neighbors” enjoying a snack I’ve provided.
I think it’s relatively inexpensive to put food out for them.
A fifteen-pound bag of critter food is less than twenty dollars.
Think of all the happy animals a fifteen-pound bag of food can feed!
First, I baked chocolate chip cookies for my kids.
Next, I’m turning into Dr. Doolittle and taking care of the animals.
