Chicago 8:7

The mother squirrel is pregnant again (look at those swollen teats)! Here she is nomming a peanut on the railing outside my office balcony. I’m making sure she gets extra food while cooking up a second batch of sqrlz:

    Well, she needs exercise too. Here’s a simple combo feeder and gym. (Mute audio)

      Wait, you’re of the opinion that this heavily pregnant squirrel isn’t doing quite enough work for your liking?

        In her condition, she’s low-hanging fruit for a hawk. We don’t want our host’s window ledge to have to be renamed Heartbreak Hotel.

    I was just in Chicago for the first time a couple of weeks ago! Wonderful city! Really, the architecture is a feast for the eyes.

    Hope to go back soon!

    Prof. Jerry, are you trapped in some kind of hi-rise prison ? We could mount a rescue mission. Or we could pray for you, ‘cept it don’t work! Send message tied to squirrel.

    And speaking of cute placental mammals, we have it from the unlikeliest of sources (PZ) that today is International Cat Day.

    Also, in the new family theme, Maru has a kitten of his own! His owner has adopted a tabby and the 2 of them are getting along very well. Moar fun videos coming up!
