During the course of the last three or four days, the offcumden squirrels have:

  1. regained access to the recently squirrel-proofed bird-table by gnawing through the heavy-duty cable-ties I’d used to secure the roof of the bird-table to the caged sides;
  2. regained access to the squirrel-proof glass bird-feeder by gnawing through the sheathed metal cable suspending the feeder from our cherry tree;
  3. eaten most of the fritillary bulbs Jen received as an early Christmas present and planted less than a week ago.

Of course, you realise this means war.
