Squirrels power-fucking outside my window

They mock me. But, on the other hand, spring is near! (I'm in CA).

Seriously the strangest thing I've seen in a while. There's a tree about 15 ft. from my window that has turned into the neighborhood fuckpad for squirrels. I heard a huge commotion, lots of yipping noises, with about four or five squirrels dashing around madly. At first I thought they were playing because they'd tumble out of the tree and run right back. Then I spotted the apparent alpha victor mounting another squirrel, presumably a female, but you never know. The others retreated and the pair were together for about five minutes. He took off and she kind of languidly hung onto the branch for about 10 min. It was all rather peaceful, unlike duck mating which looks pretty violent.

Well OP, at least someone is having sex around here

Spring is near? It's January you moron. Winter has barely started.

Spring starts on Ground Hog Day in CA.

Squirrels power-fucking? I love it. God bless 'em. I'm envious.

I'm in CA, as I mentioned (California, if you need it spelled out), where our spring starts in early February. Stuff starts blooming then and it's not uncommon to have 60 degree days. Those are at least spring-like conditions if you'd like to be so concrete as to think spring as a date-delimited thing. I looked up squirrels' gestation periods and they range from a month to two months, so they're on schedule for the first litter of the year in spring-like conditions.

If I'm a moron, you are quite concrete.

I'm in No. Cal. too, and no sign of spring. Temperature in the 30s at night, so much rain I'm worried about flooding, and no buds on the bare trees.

I'll say that spring is coming when the almond tree outside my apartment blooms.

I'm in Sacramento. Our basement took some water in a couple of weeks ago. First time ever to my knowledge. And I have no idea how came it. Can't trace it, even when it rained again since water didn't leak in again. It has me a bit freaked out if repair is necessary. (yes, we have a full basement complete with a kitchen. The guy who built the house in '39 was a Midwestern transplant and wanted a cool place for the summer. I think he had a workshop down there, too.)

Thanks for checking in, No Cal; I left there 6 months ago and wondered how you were dealing with the rain.

Thanks for the laugh OP! We had a similar thing happen at our old place, but we had gay squirrels. There were two huge ceder trees in the front yard, on either side of the walk. There were always squirrels running up and down them. Then one evening two came running down one tree, stopped in the middle of the walk and started going at it. Then they switched positions and kept going! So they were versatile gay squirrels. We looked at each other and asked almost in unison, "How did they know this was a gay friendly house?!" It really cracked us up.

I think they were sport fucking.

That's the funniest thread title in some time. Thanks for the laugh OP!

Well, it's not like they can get a room.

This sentence made me laugh.

We have lots of rabbits and squirrels up here. It's a veritable orgy of rodentia.

This has the makings of a classic thread.

well, r9 knows

Don't worry by next year some cat will have eaten both of them up.

Squirrels are our ancestors from way back, the earliest primates evolved from squirrels. Think about that the next time you see one holding a nut with their little hands.

Squirrels. Death.

Now I am imaging these squirrels going at it to the beat of a Costello Presley soundtrack.

Spring? It's not even January yet.

I was hoping to see a repeat performance today, but it's colder than yesterday and the sun isn't out. However, I did spot the hummingbird (or one like it) that's been coming to the tree since summer. I can't believe it's still going. Last time I saw it was on the 22nd. Before that it was out feeding in windy drizzle. How does something so small and delicate-seeming survive winter, albeit a mild one?

I'm hoping the squirrels nest in this tree (I should put some food out). It was a great source of entertainment all summer because there were a couple of mockingbird clutches. The backyard hosted a mockingbird flight school in late summer. Great fun to watch the youngsters (with tiny bits of flocking still) flying around learning to land on wires and gutters. Some crashes.

R9 & R20 - Who knew squirrels are so versatile?

Guy walks into a taxidermist's when two squirrels. The Taxidermist says "Do you want these mounted?" The guy says. "No, shaking hands will be OK."

Are the squirrels cunts?

I lived in CA for 17 years. It is not spring in February. R2 is right. You're a moron.

by Anonymousreply 2701/02/2013

My daffodils disagree with you, R27. Average high temperature for February in my town is 60.5 degrees.

by Anonymousreply 2801/02/2013

February isn't spring in NoCal, but there are signs of the spring to come. Cherry and plum trees are heavy with pink blossoms, and yellow mustard blooms in the green fields. When the sun comes out, it looks amazingly beautiful, but there's no guarantee it will make an appearance.

I once spent the entire month of February without seeing the sun. I worked night shift, and whenever I was up during the day, it was fogged in or overcast.

by Anonymousreply 2901/02/2013

OP here again. They're back. Well, not "they," other squirrels I'm sure. Same tree. Same routine.
