Lily’s Nemesis

March 13, 2017

To say that Lucy and Lily are not fond of squirrels, is an understatement. Lucy’s tree climbing days were squirrel inspired. Lucy’s climbing is now limited to in and out of her bed but Lily has her own struggles with squirrels at the BAB. Since we’ve lived here, a squirrel has raised her babies in the same location.

A mama squirrel has built her nest between the window and the metal grille on the outside, with a new brood each year.

Anytime Lily is loose in the building- her favorite thing to do is run around the building- she makes a beeline for this window. She explodes with berserk barking. The mama squirrel rockets out of the nest, but pretty soon realizes that there isn’t any threat. Mama proceeds to flick her tail at Lily, infuriating her even more.

Lily paws and barks non-stop at the critters.

The nest is like a squirrel terrarium.

This time, even the baby squirrel came out to see what all the racket was. Fuzzy photo- its eye is in the middle right side of the photo, its tail is on the left.

Unfortunately, the nest is in the window where the elevator is located. We take particular care to keep the elevator in the up position, fearing a Wile E Coyote style fall, but so far, the couple times when the elevator was down and Lily was loose, she’s managed to put on the breaks soon enough, but were not going to tempt fate.
