Smoking Squirrels


I've had a brilliant plan to help me catch cheeky squirrel thanks to Sebastien (see Chronically Sick link below). He's got a squirrel that smokes ( he doesn't say what) and I happen to know that smoking is very, very bad for you.

So, here's the plan. I am going to leave packets of cigarettes around the garden to encourage cheeky squirrel and his cronies to start smoking. If I can get them up to 20 a day, that should take a bit of the puff out of them and slow them down enough for me to catch them.

The only problem now is how to get the cigarettes. Wish me luck. FAZ

That is a very smart plan, Faz! I am sure it will work. If our mom or dad smoked we would send you some cigarettes, but they don't. Well...sometimes our daddy does but we're not allowed to mail THOSE kind of, um, cigarettes. Sorry!

Good luck! That sounds like an interesting plan. We don't have any squirrels in our yard.

Haha! That is BRILLIANT! I'll certainly be up for helping you catch them when they're weak- I love squirrels.

Holy smokin' squirrels! They are kinda misfits - probably have tatoos and tail piercings too!

I suppose you could steal them out of ashtrays...

I would love to see a picture of smoking squirrels!

Wow. Good luck on that one.

Haha! I love it! Plus, if you consider their weight, I'm sure one cigarette affects them even more than a human. So, you might not even have to catch them!

Be warned, the squirrels might try to sue you in court for these acts of planting cigarettes and coaxing them to smoke...

well, you could do that, but then if the squirrels were smoking their fur would stink and you probably wouldn't even wanna play with 'em or put the bitey on 'em at all. our Lady went and visited some people who smoked and she came back stinking of cigarettes. we wouldn't go near her till she showered. Cocoa even hissed at her.

Interesting idea, Faz, giving the squirrels cancer, or emphysema. We have several in our yard that torment us daily, running all over our deck like they own it!

Eric and Flynn said...

Dat sounds like a furry good plan. Let us know how it goes, and then we can try it heer.
