EFFECT:  Gift of bird feather placed smack dab in the middle of our front stoop so that I can find it when I step out the front door.

    1. Carrie, thanks. Kitty is a welcome addition to our yard because when not gifting me with feathers, she goes after chipmunks… who have decided to move on to safer places. Yay Kitty!


    1. Kate,

      Thank you for your generous offer of more chipmunks, but we have to decline at this time. Currently we are satisfied with our chipmunk to stone step ratio, and as such are not in the market for more chipmunks.

      Should this situation change, we will keep your name + number on file so that we might contact you. Again, thank you for your interest in working with us.

      1. I have never been rejected in such a professional, pleasant letter. It’s probably just as well as I understand the chippies have just redone their condo in our stone wall.


  1. I’ll take chipmunks any day over snakes. we have a snake living in our backyard! Love your “story” today and the accompanying photos!


    1. Beth, it’s a toss up as to which I dislike more: chipmunks or snakes. Probably go with snakes, but the destructive power of chipmunks is a force to be reckoned with. In either case, I like the kitty cat snoozing in our backyard, quietly on patrol.
