One-Eyed Willy

One-Eyed Willy greeted us today demanding peanuts.   Willy is a squirrel with, yep you guessed it, one eye.    Our two outdoor cats made a run for the safety of the interior of our home and would not mess with this squinting battle hardened critter.

    This tough little cookie has been mooching peanuts from us for about 4 years now. She suffered horrific injuries (broken little face, claws, missing hunks of skin, etc.)about 3 years ago, but just keeps on keepin’on. Last summer she became a mom, and is sometimes accompanied on her peanut rounds by her daughter. Keep your door closed if you don’t want squirrels in the house…several weeks ago I caught her burying her peanuts in the ficus in the family room!

  2. She is inspirational! Probably shouldn’t call her Willy…Willamena? I have not had the pleasure of meeting her daughter…I look forward to it. Thanks for your comment, Capriquarian.
