My World Tuesday - Furry critters

These two Siamese mix cats we invited to stay back in 2001. They were found a the Siamese Rescue in Virginia. They take an interest on what's going on outside. Here's the object of their interest.

With oak trees in every yard, we have quite a few squirrels around. They had no problem finding acorns in the snow.

About two weeks ago, I spotted this guy peering at me as I was taking some pictures of the sunset. There are a lot of dogs in the neighborhood (and leash laws), but I had never seen this one. He looked a bit and then wandered off to the left.

And last year we had several visits from deer.

Those squirrels are fast little rascals. They go so fast that they are hard to capture.

As always, I love how you live on the edge of civilization and have space and animals.

Very cute critters. Were your Siamese "talking" to the squirrel?

Your cats sure are interested in that squirrel. He'd better scurry out of sight.
