Sometimes a feller just needs a drink.

Hello TG. Absolutely incredible that these small creatures know what that plastic bottle these other huge big creatures carry are water. Heck that kind of understanding is beyond most Republicans for dogs sake. I was surprised that the humans caught on to what the squirrel wanted. Afterall, humans are not the smartest in the mammal bunch. Great post, Tengrain, there may be hope for land based life after the humans destroy the habitat. Hugs

Hello TG. Sorry about the moderation, I don’t know how to change it since my first blog got nuked. Let me try changing the sign in settings. Hugs
Yay! ScottiesToyBox is back up!
Yeah but… bubonic plague.
“Am I At Risk of Getting the Plague?
Humans can contract the Plague from affected animals. When the Plague starts affecting large numbers of its primary hosts (ground squirrels, in this case) and begins to impact other species, such as cats and dogs, it’s known as an epizootic. According to the CDC, humans are usually more at risk of contracting the Plague during, or shortly after, a plague epizootic.
The Plague bacteria can be transmitted to humans in the following ways:
A bite from an infected flea.
Contact with contaminated tissues or fluids (common in hunters who may come into contact with infected animals, for example).
Contact with infectious droplets from a person or an infected animal, although this type of spread has not been documented in the United States since 1924.
Pet involvement, such as when a house cat comes into contact with an infected squirrel.”
Pretty sure there’s a trash (or recycle) can now that squirrel has finished that bottle of water.
Bubonic Plague made an appearance in our New Mexico town about a decade ago. Some guy threw a dead squirrel out of his yard and that’s all it took.
