A ravenous creature with small teeth nibbled on my zucchini. I have never experienced this before. The bastards also took down my tallest sunflower. This makes me feel all icky inside because I always stick up for squirrels because their movements remind me of my cat, Olive and also because they are mammals and I feel like people think of them as flies and would probably swat them if they had a big enough swatter.
I feel like I am being punished for running over that squirrel on Spruce Street a few years back. His little tail was flailing in my rear view mirror. It was horrible and had I not been in tons of traffic that forbade me from flipping a bitch and putting the guy out of his misery I would have and now I think the squirrel goddess is punishing me for not having quicker reflexes. But, seriously, they are very twitchy creatures.
