Yosemite Sam, the infamous varmint hunter, always after Bugs
I need Sam to come around and chase off the varmints that show up from time to time in my yard...
(however, he'd have to check his guns at the door)
This fox appeared one morning and pretty much posed for me!
I put my camera on zoom and stuck it out the door -- I was NOT going out on the patio!
He appeared in the summer of 2010....
(If you want to see more pics, here's the original blog post)
But THIS guy came by recently ....
and didn't stay for long!
Sam, you did your job!!
I think this raccoon was just as startled by me and I was by him!
I haven't actually seen any bunnies around, but I know they're out there.....
This is a ceramic one that I made in an air brushing class.
He's a little banged up now (Oliver keeps walking over him...)
but he's a part of the family. Varmint that he is.
And then there are these guys who have apparently adopted us.
But they can stay.
Just so you know, Sam ....
Outside Kitty has been visiting for about a month.
She/He will get about a foot away but the minute you move ....
What a great tail!!
Then along came Big Gray
Now the alarm is out!
Calico found out about the kitty food!
And, last night, Bitty Kitty appeared.
I'm sure I'll be able to get a better shot another time!
We're wondering if Calico is Bitty Kitty's mom.
So, Yosemite Sam, do your job on the fox and raccoon varmints ....
but leave the kitties alone!
If you know what's good for you.....
