Do you want to know what the rodents do during winter? They stay in their homes and make babies.
There are three rabbits in this picture - can you spot the hidden rabbit?

When momma first started feeding the birds there were only Blue Jays and sparrows coming for the free food. Slowly but surely, the four legged animals started coming over. We now have three cottontails, five chipmunks, three gray squirrels, and several brown squirrels that stop by for a bite to eat. Yesterday we even had two large dogs that were visiting us (they belonged to a neighbor down the road). We have seen a coyote and two large crows hanging around the outskirts of the bird feeders but as of yet, they have not ventured into the area although the coyote does come close to the side of the house.
Puffy and I don't get to play with these visitors because they might carry fleas and other things that could make us sick. Sometimes I sit on the big bed and watch them outside the window but I think it would be more fun if I were allowed to bark and chase them.
Hugs and kisses,
