Squirrel Stuff I Own: Balcony/Garden Squirrels

I am often asked, "Casey, you have so much squirrel stuff that is meant for display inside a home, but how oh how will you announce to the world at large that your home is a home for rodent lovers when you have no exterior squirrel items?"

Well a house isn't really a home until you acquire garden squirrels, and it appears that our house is finally a home!

My friend E dutifully acquired these for me and I just adore them. We don't have a yard of course, but they sit out on our balcony and keep us company while we drink beer and watch the sun set over Manhattan.

I'm not much for gardening, really. I've killed every plant I've ever owned, including our beloved Bonsai tree, Sputnik, whom I found horrifically shriveled and dry on our window sill one morning back in 2009.

Luckily, now when we do have a garden or a yard some day, I can be assured that at least two little garden inhabitants will remain happy and healthy, particularly since they require neither weeding nor watering.
