Re: Tree Rat

There must have been a walnut tree near where I used to live, because in the Autumn I often used to see a squirrel burying a nut in the vegetable patch. I used to try and spot where it had buried the nut and go and unearth and eat it. They were the tastiest nuts I'd ever eaten!

What's wrong with "Rat". Some of my best friends are rats...……...

Unless you were referring to "Tree". Also some of my best friends...….

Re: Tree Rat

They are in the same family as marmots so they must be cuddly.

Re: Tree Rat

The native Red Squirrel is cute and cuddly. I'm not swayed by the American import.

Re: Tree Rat

Locally, they're all we have! There was some discussion of re-introducing a predator (wish I could remember its name) that would thin the grey population and allow the reds to spread further North.

The predator is the Pine Martin. The Red Squirrels are much better at evading capture by it.
