Amber & Be Careful What You Wish For

Often, I wish I could be friends with all the animals.

So, when I saw this little black squirrel guy, I, of course, went over to say hello.

It was like  fantasy! My little squirrel buddy seemed happy to let me near.

He even noticed me and turned to listen to me compliment him on the fluffiness of his tail.

But then, when he decided to take our friendship to the next interspecies level, and started to approach me, I hightailed it out of there.

Back at home, I remembered that I am friends with some pretty special fluffy-tailed animals that don't have rabies or ticks.

But they sure do have flexible spines.

I would probably have reacted exactly the same way. I love cute fuzzy buddies in the wild (or "wild" as the case may be in NY), but then I remember that they are not the cleanest of creatures.

Amber, I am very much enjoying this photographic documentation of your new environs. Keep it coming!
