You are not the first my friend. You see? They watch you; they know you; they think about you and they want you. They're not just some animal like we are to them; they are IT. There's a side to me that is breathing a naive sigh of relief now that they are not around; a side to me that thinks "Darn it! How am I gonna prove this now?";and a side that is even more afraid. Spiders are terrifying- to me at least -but I wouldn't go so far as to suggest that they are evil/ planning on dominating us (well, not any more). The Squirrels need their own Australia to keep them at bay: That'd sort them out.

Rdwarf, thanks for sharing you inner-most secrets and revealing a little more about yourself. You are obviously a complex, yet conflicted person. I admire that you are able to keep your wits about you when imminent danger lurks. I too share many of your above traits like fear and anxiety but perhaps I'm a tad more constipated.

Oh and BTW, Happy 10 Day Anniversary on your thread. I am now realizing that if this were a bogus attempt of a hoax or tall-tale, as there exists NO PROOF you would have already been outed by the astute membership of this forum.

Just to let you know you have LEGAL RIGHTS.

I have dug up a little-known law from 1909:

"An Act for the Extermination of Rodents."


www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov...

I am "Your Welcoming" you in advance.

I sense danger lurking, but should the inevitable arise, may I have your rights / permission to any reality-show or book deal offers?

But PLEASE. Be careful. My acorns been twitching lately.

Regards......KK

It should be noted by all that this thread has been one of the most interesting on the boards for the last 10 days. I only replied once about the local wildlife in my area. But since then, random eerie coincidences have popped up. The squirrels have gone into hiding, I would worry but the cats are on the prowl so I feel safe.

Thanks Ramadwarf for the enlightening posts that have been very funny in their seriousness.

Thankyou for another inciteful link KindaKurious and, in answer to your question: Uh, I don' think so but thank you for your concern. I can see that you really want my problem put out to the people and that is admirable. Oh, I'm not sure if I want to know about your acorns: That isn't so admirable!

Hazelnut: I appreciate your concern- as always -but there's usually four cats that mooch around through the gardens throughout the length of the day and recently I haven't seen any. It's going to hell round here and I- and the other couple of guys panicking alongside me -don't know what to do.
The only thing that we have at the moment is some diagram we drew on how to get out of the estate if the trees 'Fall' down. I guess we'll just have to band together and find them. Then we drive them away in the most humane way concievable.
Oh and LadyInWaiting: I forgot to thank you for that unique smiley that you posted; I'm glad to see something giving me the respect I deserve! ]

Oh nuts, LadyInWaiting I have to apologise big time here: I seriously did not mean to delete your messages from this board! I guess that's what happens when you're not concentrating on what you're doing... I'm guessing that there is no way to restore them- if there is I would like to know anyone -and so I aam seriously sorry for that!

Since I still see her posts (as probably do others) it is highly possible you inadvertently added her to you "Ignore" list by hitting the red ignore word under her Avatar. I think you can un-ignore her in your My Profile settings.

That is a feature of ATS to disregard combative posters who make you look bad with their logic and facts.

Welcome to the Kinda Kurious fan club. Don't tase me bro'.

Squirrels! Bah humbug! When we first moved here six years ago, we had a normal amount of gray squirrels and hardly any ground squirrels (chipmunks). We did have a small supply of flying squirrels (in our attic). The flying squirrels didn’t really like us trapping them constantly and taking them across the lake (although I do believe they probably beat us home), so when we put up a bunch of bird houses, they decided these made better homes than the attic, which was OK with us as they really are entertaining little creatures.

Well, after a few years of drought, we are now overloaded with all kinds of squirrels. The oak trees set on more acorns in a drought as a defense, and more food means a healthy supply of squirrels. My husband and his air gun (plus two cats and two dogs) try to keep them in check, but it is a losing battle. Those darned chipmunks – they dig holes everywhere. And they are stupid – if a cat chases them it’s not unusual for them to commit suicide by jumping into the pool – and then I have to dig out a dead critter. Ours haven’t become aggressive yet, but they have become braver and will walk right by you within a couple of feet if they think you aren’t paying any attention. OP, I feel your pain.

I am, and you should be also! It sounds- not sure why -that you are in a more rural area? If so you might end up in more trouble than us simple city folk. I know what you mean; A they are quite cute and happy; B they are getting too comfortable with people. They've got it made- most people will not take any notice of the guy running around shouting about the Squirrel threat... smelling of rum.

What sort of dog was it?

Still, it doesn't surprise me after what I've seen in the last year or so. The ones round here just went for things despite what might happen to them.

I wouldn't let Sparky out of the house with angry squirrels lurking without proper protection:

XFD @ being afraid of squirrels

Oh, humans. Anything that moves and reproduces even half as fast of us is declared an infestation and must be dealt with!

Yeah, if I had a dog he/she (it) would be dressed like that- even if there was no squirrel threat! He/she (it) looks more like it's being protected from bees though... Might I suggest you dress it in something cooler? It is heating up after all buddy.

The reason why they must be dealt with has absolutely nothing to do with their rates of reproduction. It is all about them being angry and picking on us people that go 'ahh, look...' when we see them! Evil! And this thread was called 'Infestation' because a house across the estate (the home of one of my friends) had some living in the loft; not because they can breed faster than us. However you are right- we humans do tend to overreact(not that I am).

Hmmmm! I've noticed that the squirrels in my yard have disappeared. Haven't seen them in days. Guess I'll be packin' when I mow the yard later this week.

You never know Kettlebellysmith, you might be very lucky. Veeery lucky indeed. Or we might be able to make a link between this and one of those 'underground civilisation' threads. Hhmmm, maybe it'd be an idea to check the ground.

Rama,

As I tried to warn you before, they are answering the "Requiem for Revenge." They are amassing in huge numbers for the big invasion. Herds of all creatures big and small.

Not trying to be an alarmist mind you. But I simply care and have formed deep feelings for your plight. Perhaps I am realizing my "special purpose."

I still havent read where there has been a solution.

Off topic, but...

I love the fact that ramadwarf always answers in a 3rd person logout. Kind of like a newscaster signing off for the night.


Ramadwarf, you are a funny, funny person. Thanks for lifting my spirits.

You might just be right, KindaKurious. You might just be right. Having spent some time yesterday afternoon scanning the area with my eyes I can say that I have not been the least bit successful.

This could also mean that it is time for the party, but I've seen too many films to fall for that one. I am hoping that they are gone but- seeing as how there was such a mass of them -I am having difficulty believing it.

Of course i am not afraid of them coming out with a multitude of other creatures: that is more humerous than terrifying. If it does happen then I'll eat my hat. Well, I won't but you know what I mean.
