Why this squirrel is glad we moved back from India………

October 15, 2010

One of my biggest challenges since returning to the U.S has been what to do with our food waste. It really never bothered me to throw food away before we moved to India. Now, I cannot stand it. So, as I have probably mentioned before, I have at least figured out a way to not waste our left over breads….

It really makes me happy to see these guys eat our stale biscuits and crackers. I did find out, however, they are not big fans of cheese balls. Hey, I never claimed they were smart. And ants apparently love cheese balls and because they are just puffs of air filled with cheese deliciousness and ants can carry 50 times their own body weight – they got a workout with the bonus of dinner at the end.

I know feeding the squirrels does not solve all of my food waste issues – but at least it’s a start. I am considering a compost pile. We’ll see how ambitious I get.

But in the meantime, I am going to keep feeding these guys…

Have a great weekend!

    A very good start indeed, being kind to animals is a very noble virtue.

    Awesome! I had no idea why the pesky squirrels had vacated our backyard. Thank you! Can you throw out some carrots and radishes, the rabbits are a nuisance as well and they keep eating Linda’s flowers.

      Don’t tempt me – I just might. These squirrels are so damn cute when they eat – sometimes I will pop popcorn just for them. 😉
