I’m not usually prejudiced, but when it comes to rodents, I am definitely guilty of discrimination!
Without fail, this gray squirrel shows up and I’m like, “Get out of my backyard! You’re not welcome here!”
But then this little chipmunk shows up after hiding away for the winter months and I hear words like, “You’re so cute. Welcome back!” coming out of my mouth.
The squirrel steals the bird food and I want to reach for the Red Rider; but this fellow stretches out in the seed tray and I stand and watch him feast away.
At least he has good grooming and hygiene habits.
I love when he turns around and gives me his guilty expression, although clearly his guilt does not deter his thievery!
So, while I celebrate racial diversity (And I truly do…I mean hey…my pastor is a dude with dreads!) I am dead-set against rodent diversity in my backyard!
