Ready For Winter
This obviously well fed squirrel was sitting in a tree in my yard Wednesday eating an apple. You'll have to trust me on that, as is usually the case, by the time I got the camera from inside the house the apple was half eaten and dropped to the ground next to my barking dog.

Cold Cat?
I can offer no explanation to why "Mama Cat" has suddenly decided that laying on the metal floor furnace grate at my house is a good idea? I've always kept it cold in the house just to save energy expenses and she normally prefers a soft chair or rug. She is still hopefully smart enough not to be there while the furnace is on, but I've been seeing her there between heating cycles the past 3-4 days. -- Ted Wright 12/31/2008
