Palm Squirrel

How do you feel about the Indian palm squirrel in this photo, as he looks out from the trunk of a mango tree in my garden?  Do you think he’s cute?  Then you probably don’t have any palm squirrels as neighbours.

They call “cheep cheep cheep” as loudly as possible every morning at dawn, from a vantage point on the side of our house.  They get even louder when they spot a cat.  No mechanized alarm would produce a sound like this.  I spotted one on the roof of another house and I could almost swear that he had his paws up to his mouth to make a megaphone.  So, however lovely he looks with his three white stripes, I’ve put him in a “Wanted” poster!
