He looked at his watch, then tapped his little foot. The sprinkler is supposed to come on at 5:15, but it was a minute late. All was forgiven very quickly. He got water all over his cute little button nose, but didn’t seem to mind being wet.
This morning his early morning foray onto the deck was interrupted by the roadrunner pair appearing on the scene. There was a momentary standoff, but it was mostly over by the time I got the lens cap off my camera.
Looks like this is, indeed, a Rock Squirrel, as Beverly mentioned. He has taken up residence under our shed, comes onto the deck early in the morning, and hangs out in the carport – stretched full length – where the cement is cool in the afternoons. I noticed that his TO DO list included getting a new lounge chair and umbrella.
He sure is cute! ;->
