This week’s highlighted t-shirt design, made for back yard birders, was inspired by an angry rant I had recently. When we first moved in here back in February, I noticed one squirrel visited our back yard a couple of times a week. I found this kind of hilarious, since I’d never really seen one squirrel by itself before (except for some exciting sightings in the squirrel-deprived Netherlands), especially not at a back yard feeding station. My parents, for example, regularly have a practical infestation of at least 6 squirrels at a time. So our lone squirrel would come by a few times a week and that was fine with me. About a month ago I had my first double squirrel sighting and things went downhill from there, very fast. Two weeks ago these bold little furmonsters were spotted regularly on our suet log, methodically removing the bark and gnawing through the wood while pilfering every last smear of suet. Finding the log on the ground the other day set off my angry rant and I was chasing squirrels away every chance I had, cursing and babbling like a madwoman. After months of peaceful coexistence I have to admit we join the ranks of those suffering from a ‘squirrel problem.’ And so I had to make this simple design as a statement of this fresh war.
