Airborne most of the way

This squirrel wasn’t expecting me to catch him in my peach tree. I went out to check on my dwarf white peach tree this morning because I was getting quite  few peaches just starting to grow (but too early to pick). And this mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, peach-stealing squirrel was in the tree! Eating a peach!

I scared him so bad he flew like he had wings – out from the tree, across the lawn, only touching down twice before he disappeared into the bushes. He was airborne most of the way.

Was I too mean? He had a look of terror on his face so I think he peed on my peaches. Are they still organic?

    I’m thinking a slingshot is in order. Are you a good aim, Jenny? 🙂

    A pellet gun would’ve been mean. You making him possibly pee is just survival of the fittest! 😀

    Oh dear…lol…so funny 😆
    Jenny’s breaking bad with an annoying squirrel. They are annoying and ruin things, so go get’em Jenny if that’s what it takes to keep things protected. Looking at the photo I can just imagine you hot on his tail. I think it’s funny to see him airborne and running for his life. Maybe it will teach him a lesson to stay out of the trees. You could do worse to them, so no you’re not being mean 🙂
