Eric opened the door to go to the bank this morning, and there they were.
Sera and her protege? Son? Underling?
I noticed they both ran up the tree when he took their Critter Crunch out. Sera came down to eat while he was still standing there. The other squirrel (I have to come up with a name for him) did not.
Since squirrels are territorial, he must be someone Sera knows or trusts. She tends to chase away the interlopers. This little guy is lower on the pecking order – that’s why he lets her eat first.
He’s either someone she’s training or else he’s learned just by observing her. Hey, if I hang out here by this door, maybe one of those creatures will bring me a treat. It works every time for Sera.
