Two of my squirrels got married today.
Actually they mated without ceremony. Since they were born last summer, I regarded them as brothers. I fed them all winter and they often sun themselves on top of Our Lady's shrine outside my door. They are unique in that each has blond ears. Yesterday I saw them wrestling and chasing one another, although I was surprised brother squirrels would stay together like that. This morning I noticed the boys doing something else, and I finally realized they are not brothers at all - but one is male and one is female. The female is sitting on the roof of the shrine sunning herself as I write this.
