Your Fur Babies are beautiful. And would never ruin a whisker tackling a fuzzy tailed rat, I truly don't blame them.
Cin & the Rat
Thats very funny.I have three cats.Two of them,like to sit on the windowsill.The female cat really wags her tail when the little buggers are near.You have some very nice looking friends.The one on the right looks like, she(he) likes to play and gets into things? Have Fun,Rich
Those kitties are so cute, Laurent! I would not let them any closer to those furry rats outside than that window. The one on the left has totally won me over. Just look into those eyes!
Maybe one of those fake plastic owl things? They might be scared of those...or a snake? A Scarecrow?
I go with the 'neighbors who keep the squirrels well fed' theory. My neighbor spends a fortune on peanuts and in over two years outside I've yet to have an orchid munched. Can't say the same for my plastic resin patio chairs though! And like Connie I have a nice crop of peanuts growing all over the back yard.
Since we're posting personal pics....my squirrel deterrent system comes in the duo model. (See pic) Open the door and yell "sic 'em" and they're chased up the closest tree. Unfortunately, my system has an auto shut off at night time.

awe.... they are so cute!
