Our Special Friend

We first spotted this little guy in May of 2008 and then again in November 2008. When I first saw him climbing around in the trees I couldn't figure out what kind of animal he was because he is missing a tail. He looked like a rabbit climbing a tree and with short ears.

It has been said that animals with a deformity or injury don't tend to live very long but this little guy seems to be doing alright for himself and pretty content to stay in the neighborhood.

Haha, I would recognize one of those little guys anywhere, tail or not. They always try to take advantage of my parents' bird feeder, which is right behind a huge window-wall that overlooks their deck and back yard. They can be cute little critters, though. :)
