My Mini Pet Pig . . . and Pals!

Intruders all around!

Before I get to our home intruders, Mamma asked me to thank all of you who commented yesterday on the whole cat situation. She got some excellent and much appreciated advice as well as some needed well wishes.

The cats made peace during the day after a scuffle on the bed and tolerated each other with a little distance in between.


Now, onto this unwelcome intrusion. I’m pretty happy being the pet interest around here. So I find it very distasteful to have my family’s attention diverted elsewhere.


This sneaky squirrel taught all his pals how to jump up on the bird house and then leap to the bird window feeder. Only shells remained and then Mamma had to refill the feeder and move it away.

Not before they got their share, though.


I sure wish my tree rat chasing friends (Molly for one!) were here to catch these guys. Even the cats forgot about their fight while watching these thieves go at the food.

Then there were more deer (the same family as usual, so it seems).


A monstrously huge woodpecker.

And then, aside from all the birds darting in and out and the deer popping through, who came by but Mr. Fox.

Mr. Fox

He REALLY captured everyone’s attention and even my squeals couldn’t take their eyes away.


Apparently there is a family of three foxes that lives in the woods behind our house. We are all fine with that as long as the cats and I stay tucked up safe inside. However, if they are going to add to the list of show stealers, I am NOT okay with their presence.

Stay away, intruders, this is my house and I dictate the visitors and the volume in this house.

You won’t get in, not by the hair of my chinny chin chin.

    Oh Cocco, that is a really serious intrusion. Well as you know, dealing with foxes is my speciality. Just send me the plane ticket and I’ll be right over…

    OMD I so want that squirrel. Let me at him. I chased a fox once and peeps was out of her mind with worry. You sure have a lot of intruders. Keep an eye out on those pesky tree rats. Before you know it they will be moving in. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Well Cocco my friend, at least you all have lots of great “Yard TV” to enjoy with all those critters out there! The fox is beautiful….good thing your cats are INDOORS though….and Mr. Tree Rat is enjoying that seed – we have the same problem here with HERDS of tree rats! My Mom likes to watch them and I have to admit, they ARE entertaining! But never fear – YOU are the center of attention at your house and always will be Cocco!!

    Hugs, Sammy
