Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? I found a new floof baby!
Momma and #4 Hooman Sister have been taking pictures of wilders around outside.
This one was just outside #4’s back porch.
This was on a stump outside Momma’s office. She called it a flicker, but she can’t fool me — IT’S A BIRD!
A groundhog and a raccoon live under our back porch. The raccoon is camera shy, but the groundhog (woodchuck, whistle pig) lets Momma and #4 take pictures through the windows.
#4 took this one of the groundhog peeking up.
Momma calls the groundhog Clover. Can you guess why?
It was really rainy yesterday, and Clover came up when it finished to dry off.
Momma said she looks like a capybara, whatever that is.
Now I’m going to go play with my floof baby some more. Toot toot!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you ever do impressions of hoomans?

OMG…it really does look like a capybara. Apparently they’re, um, delicious. 🙂

So I’m told. I’d rather eat the raccoon who strips the blueberry bushes and digs up my plants. Bonus: I could make a cool cap out of him. Grrrrr!

LMAO!!!! So fierce. 😀 You might need to tenderise him for a while first though. 😀

He’ll be plenty tender by the time I get finished whooping his sassy butt. 😉

Enjoy your new toy, Tipper, and tell Momma to have a good weekend. (You too, Chickie).

When I didn’t take the new toy away from him, he lost interest. Of course.

Have you tried cayenne on your edible plants? We have had good luck with it. But must reapply after rain unfortunately.

I used it successfully on our indoor plants when we had a cat who liked to dig in them. Now that I think of it, I have some chipotle powder, too, and some whole dried Thai peppers. Hmmmm….
