An intruder entered em manor twice in 3 days. A drug-fueled Trenton gangbanger perhaps? No, but it was the burliest flying squirrel you've ever seen. The first night the little fellow scurried up between the screen and the window, so we (by “we” I mean .rz) were able to open the screen and it found its own way out again.
Silly thing came back last night. It perched on the curtain rod, and .rz and I tried to capture it in a towel, but it launched its little body into the air and glided straight at Joey, who squealed and ran away down the hallway. We had it trapped in the room, but the animal’s superior speed and evasive maneuvering ability made it next to impossible to get a good shot at draping a towel over it. I caught numerous toys, dirty socks, and .rz’s foot in my towel-net, but no flying squirrel. It finally found a secret hidey-hole and we had to give up for the night.
I wish we hadn’t. Cat got on the trail at approximately 5:00 in the morning and rapidly had the poor thing clenched in his mouth and then quickly retreated to the first floor, under the couch. Poor little guy.
But how were you getting in? Despite climbing around on the roof, I can not find your tiny doorway to the upstairs front bedroom.
