Wildlife in the suburbs
« on: September 26, 2021, 08:20:01 AM »

Well poor pitiful Ziffel got sprayed by a skunk Wednesday morning out in the field. Geez what a horrible smell. A long bath with a mixture of baking powder, dish detergent & hydrogen peroxide (followed by 2 baths with dog shampoo) managed to reduce the smell to a tolerable level. On the bright side, his white fur is almost blinding!!!

A couple of weeks ago, in the early morning, while I was watching mama & twin fawns munching on some dewy grasses, I heard a bone chilling screech. The deer all ran off quickly and after a moment a bobcat came strolling out of the cattails surrounding the pond. Friday night Tim took Ziffel out for the last potty break before bed and heard it “moaning like a banshee”. I didn’t realize they would live in the suburbs, but the noises they make are unmistakable.

Welcome to the wildlife in suburbia.
The cliff lines whisper "I have secrets to share".  But sometimes they lie!! :D
