Our new yard is teeming with wildlife.
So far, in our yard, we have observed:
-rabbits, including tiny baby bunnies
-gray squirrels, fighting the red squirrels for tree territory
-a large, menacing stray cat weighing about 50 pounds, we thought it was a dog at first
It’s like a regular Wild Kingdom out there. We also have evidence of raccoons in our crawlspace, their pawprints are all over the basement window, like they were patting it down, trying to find the opening to get in and ransack the place.
In the city, our only wildlife was pigeons, with the occasional rat wandering the street. Oh, and dogs. Our apartment building was engulfed with dogs. They sometimes would even be in the halls alone, without owners, knocking on doors and running away laughing, or waiting for the elevators.
Dogs we’re OK with – We’re just hoping there’s no bears in the suburbs.
