The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

...in the car again with the windows rolled up in 70 degree weather  a day before his birthday.

Happy Birthday pen !

I only remembered because when I stepped out onto the back porch this morning at 5am the squirrels had left a charred pile of peanuts, sunflower seeds and those weird spikey balls . It looks like they tried to use a twig as a candle and it sorta' went lop-sided. I'm still trying to figure out how they got it lit. I don't think it's the AIs we have to worry about in the future. Someday we'll all have shunts in the back of our heads and we will be devotedly compelled to farm peanuts and walnuts until we drop from exhaustion.

Happy Birthday Pen?

I think they lit it with lightning, because I'm sure that squirrels have their own pipeline to God.

Happy Birthday, Pen.

Greetings from Not Europe

Thanks. I feel so guilty. They say the good die young.

In the future keep a bowl of fresh water in the car when you run errands with your Pen. It's smart to take precautions for those rare instances when you slip up. 'Cause despite best intentions we all slip up sometimes.

That said, Pens are surprisingly hearty pets and can tolerate a surprising level of rough handling. While they adore human companionship, they can amuse themselves for hours on end with a piece of string or by "tracking" a sunbeam across the rug. That accounts for their popularity with the elderly and others unable to cope with pets who need constant attention or require a lot of exercising.

Don't underestimate a Pen's emotional complexity. They feel jealousy, anger, contentment, and can be quite territorial. Speak with your vet or a qualified cable tv installer about the troubling dynamic that seems to be developing between Pen and the squirrels. That charred pile of seeds and nuts sounds like an interspecies challenge or dominance display.
