To put some nuts on the porch for the birds since it's been so cold and there has been so much snow. This lead to a squirrel visiting us multiple times daily. Now my mom thinks she can just stop feeding him as things are thawing and he will go away (he's been leaving squirrel poops on our porch). Today he keeps knocking on the door and looking in with this sad look that broke my little heart. He's adorable and I want to squeeze him and hug him (I won't I promise). I've named him Lloyd. I hope he is still able to scavenge for his own food :( I've lectured my mom on it.
