Was sitting here at the computer a little bit ago and suddenly I heard this horrible squealing noise from out front. I run to the door and open it, and outside our bay window, we have a brick planter almost flush to the house. On top of the planter was Noddy, peering down into the crack, and on each side on full prey mode was Blink and Wink. I ran them off, while the trapped animal kept squealing- YIKES my ears- it was such a high-pitched squeal, then I grabbed a flashlight and peered down the crack. Here is a big ol ground squirrel wedged behind the darn thing. I reached for the broom and using it carefully guided him along the planter to the edge and he ran out and scrambled under the house. Poor Mr. Squirrel- outnumbered by the Trips, but he wasn't injured at all, he was just trapped with no clear way out.
