We live on the 11th floor of a block in Central London and almost every day we get squirrels on our balcony! This little fellow greeted Meowmie as she exited our building when she left for work the other morning - he is one of our frequent squirrel visitors and is incredibly tame, just after Meowmie took this photos he tried to jump on to Meowmie's camera-phone. Timmy has yet to see the squirrels but I am sure he will be most intrigued by them when he does eventually spot them.
My meowmie could never eat one (she things they are too cute), but squirrels used to be a popular food source many years ago in the UK, not so much now, however you can still buy squirrel dishes at some traditional British restaurants who specialise in the more adventurous cuts of meat.
Well, if things get totally desperate in the UK with this credit crunch business I guess we won't starve...what with our pigeon visitors too!
