I saw my squirrel friend again today. I have to name this little guy...
I was on a break, sitting in my car, which is where I usually see him. However, this time he was right outside my driver's door. I hung my head out the window and spoke to him softly. He looked inquisitively at me and didn't run. He looked away, then back at me as I continued to coo 'hello.'
Then, our brief encounter was over, as he proceeded to go back into the little hole he lives in. What a joyful, peaceful moment!
I figured that was it for the day...not so...at lunchtime, he was there again. I shared some of my donut with my furry friend...each time, dropping a piece closer and closer to where I was. Tentatively inching toward the goodies, it afforded me an immediate glimpse of him. I was able to talk a bit more and enjoy his company.
P.S. Tomorrow, I'm bringing him some critter mix! lol
