Surprise Visitor

One morning, Stick bounded off the sofa and ran to the sliding glass door. That's not easy for a 21 year old cat, but he did it. We barely saw a blur pass by.


I went around the cabin to see if I could discover what it was.


Out in the woodshed I saw a squirrel climbing over our newly cut wood.  I was trying to capture a shot when it come right up to me and posed not more than five feet away.


In honour of his visit, I filled the feeder with peanuts for his dining pleasure. -- Margy
