Chipmunk Invasion

Last I left you, my kitty Guy was afflicted with Chipmunk Fever. Well that hasn't changed.

What has changed is that now we have a full blown case of ...

 Chipmunk Invasion!!!

First off here is a cute little book about those darling fantasy chipmunks, the ones that only exist in children's books! Chip Chip is available in my shop.

Chippy being cute....

Chippy being smart....and naughty....

But of course it always come down to the Chippsters getting into some kind of ----- TROUBLE!

Take a look at the photos below....... A couple of weeks ago whilst I was taking something out to the garage to throw into the recycling bin, I saw a furry chipmunk scamper off behind a box. I opened the overhead garage door and thought I must have chased him out.


I didn't notice till a few days later ---- this!! I'm not sure if the hole was chewed trying to get out or trying to get in! Not only did they chew the door, they scratched away the cement floor! Anyway, now they come and go at will.

The photo above is a close up of where they chewed on the garage door.

The photo below shows how they are excavating a tunnel outside under the driveway!! 

They are moving into our garage for the winter! Guess they think I owe them for putting up with Guy all summer! Really I only had to pry them out of his mouth a couple of times (and they ran off). Usually he just sat on them (and then they ran off). Anyway, I'm leaving this up to my hubby to fix. He said something about patching the hole with metal....

Other than this and hot weather, cold weather, endless houseguests and flea market/estate sales, I have made some progress in my office and shop. I'll be back with more fun finds soon. 

Glad to be back in Blog Land, I've missed you all.  Expect a visit soon!
