Gigantor the Squirrel!!!

Furiends, I gotta serious problem over here. Some of you may have seen me mention gigantic squirrels invading my backyard lately. Well here are pictures of the King of Large Squirrels. His name is Gigantor, and mom thinks he is almost as big as me!

The evil!

Look at this massive creature! When he runs across our roof it sounds like a bowling ball!

Dis is the tree you've seen me stand next to many times. He's enormous!

He even tries to eat the birds suet!!!
BOL, he's all rolly-poly!

Every day dis mammoth creature tries to get into the bird feeder, and every day he fails. He's either not too bright, or he's testing it systematically for weaknesses. BOL!

As you can see, dis is squirrel proof - his weight closes the gate and he gets nothin'!
NOTHIN'! Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Soon the behemoth realizes he is foiled...
(the feeder is about 20 inches tall. So it looks like he is about 16 inches long NOT including his tail. OMD!!!)

and proceeds to lumber his bulky self up the feeder...


Almost there...

and up he goes...

Like I said, dis is a fairly big feeder. For a size comparison, here is a Red Bellied Woodpecker on it. Red Bellied Woodpeckers are no slouch of the bird world, I tell 'ya. If you've ever seen one, you know they are pretty big!!!

He haunts my dreams...


PS. As a side note, remember the painting of Nigel Buggers? You can now get prints of it and it help A Place to Bark dog rescue build their shelter!

Wednesday LOL and a blizzard, which is NOT LOL to me...

Dis my picture fur the Wednesday Lol. Pretty funny, right?

And DIS is what I woke up to dis morning. NOT funny to me at all!

We had 10 inches of snow and high winds last night and today. According to, the wind chill right now is -25 below zero!!! Which translates to 2500 below zero when you have a nekkid belly like me!

Dis is where I pee'd dis morning, BOL!

And dis is me warming up my feets by the heater afterwards.

Dis is me in my red hoodie after daddy shoveled a path to the garage.

Thinking about jumping into the snow to go on squirrel patrol and mark my territory.

Deciding to pee right here instead.

Thinking about it some more...

Pondering, contemplating...


weighing the pros and cons...

Deciding instead to pee by dis chair. Hey, dis is my territory too, you know!

All the squirrels are snug in their nests and don't need chasing. Let's go inside, mom!

Hope everyone stays safe and warm!

Securing the perimeter in the frozen tundra...

Ok, maybe it's not the frozen tundra, but baby it's cold outside!!!

I started my rounds wiff checking to make sure there were no enemy squirrels in the tree...

Nope. No enemy here. Dis area is secure!

Then I check on the bush wiff the twisty branches. No sign of the enemy, so I give the All Clear signal by lifting my front paw. Time to go check on the lattice by the fence...

Shhhh... I'm listening fur to see if there is a rabbit or mouse in here.

Maybe I'd better sniff around...

Mom says the back of my ears are SO cute. Well, of course they are, but I really don't see why she has to talk about it!

I'm her Cutie Patootie.

Checking one last time to make sure there's nothing in there...

Looking cute fur mom. She likes it.

My mom. She loves me so much.

So I will humor her and look cute some more...

Look at dis crazy picture of me running. It cracks mom up, BOL!

My handsome profile.

Mom went "SQUEEEE!!!" when she saw dis picture.

And dis one too. My cuteness is too much fur her to take sometimes.

And then of course she had to do more squees because of my ears and the perplexed look on my face in dis picture. She doesn't understand that I'm doing serious work here. It's my job to keep dis place safe!

The perimeter is secure. Now we can go inside where it's warm.
It's good to be king.
