So, my love of animals has grown over the years and I'm happy to say that we have some animals who come into our yard to visit me. I've named them (of course) and talk to them every day. We have George (the rabbit); Chubs, Skittles, Tiny, and Slim (the squirrels...and yes, I can tell them apart); lots of birds; and a pair of raccoons I've named Phil and Lil. Chubs is my favorite. He's not afraid of me and actually comes up to the patio door to peek inside the house. He even comes up on the deck railing if I sit outside on the deck. Cyrus isn't crazy about Chubs. I don't think it's because he doesn't like Chubs. I think it's more like Cyrus doesn't want to share any of my attention. Keaton recently said that he's half expecting the animals to be living inside the house whenever he comes home. Silly guy...they'd have to be potty-trained first.

The other squirrels didn't come over for their photo op.
The raccoons are cute, but need to be relocated to a different home.
