Why do squirrels lick leaves. Desiese infested vermon. July 25, at 9: Cashew is a loving cat with a loud voice, and she has some litter box issues that require having her bottom cleaned on a regular basis, at least for now. Is this the squirrel version of a salt lick? A cat named Cashew is in need of a permanent home. I turn the basket upside down with the front edge resting on a brick and the squirrels shinny underneath for their meal of peanuts. Today he actually opened a drawer of my jewelry chest and pulled out an earring! And how to get them back: Madison, Wi weather was brutal, dueing the week after we moved.
