When Matt was working in the garage a few days ago, he found the bird feeder the kids gave him for Father's Day in 2009. We ended up not using it for very long because we had such a bad squirrel problem in Little Rock. As Matt was putting the feeder out in our yard here, he found something very interesting.

Here's the pole for the bird feeder. 

And here's the interesting thing he found where the two pieces of the pole connect.

I checked both our cats' claws to see if either one was missing a claw. They weren't. So the question remains: is this a cat claw or a squirrel claw? Either way, we know someone was caught with their "hand" in the proverbial cookie jar!

Owweee that had to hurt!

BTW, thank you for your email the other day. I planned to reply but have been busy. Goodness, I hadn't even blogged in almost a week. Very unusual for me! Thank you for your prayers though and while you are right and although I know my statement is true, I use it as a defense mechanism.
