A Reason To Keep Batteries In Your Digital Camera

We're all sitting around watching television--well, Lani and I are--when Savannah comes over and whispers to me that I should look at the squirrels on the back porch because "they're either killing each other or having group sex."

I have no idea what these squirrels were doing...but let's just say I saw no evidence of killing.

I really wish I could share a picture with you.


  • Let me just say, it was bizarre. There were two squirrels lying on their sides one in front of the other, not touching each other. Then there was a third squirrel perpendicular to those two who was lying on top of their upper bodies and seemed to be rooting at them with his head and paws. I thought he was either having some kind of squirrel sex with them (although why their lower bodies were all unengaged remains a mystery) or eating their heads. (Did I tell you about the time my old friend Cathy's gerbil ate its little cagemate's head?) Rob said that when he tapped on the glass, they all got up and ran off together. Hey, whatever floats their little squirrel boats. I'm just glad they weren't hurting each other.

  • They didn't run. They kind of poked their heads up, started ambling off, went back into their set piece, then decided to amble off. And they were ambling in quite a leisurely fashion.

    The, uh, lower bodies did engage at one point, though.

  • Oh! So I guess I was just seeing their foreplay. Who knew squirrels had foreplay? Or threesomes?
