Well then, I peeked at the pomegranates to see if he had been eating them. Nope. All intact. Hmmm. What was he doing?
Later I went out in back, and lo and behold, I found a half-eaten apple, one from our small apple tree in front. So THAT's what the squirrel had been doing. He must have found the apple in front, but then taken it all the way around to the back to eat it.
I left the apple there, and it took Mr Squirrel three days to finish it.
This is the postcard I am sending to Tofu with this anecdote.
