If you remember, I made three felted bird houses for Felt United Day. This dark purple one got put in the back of the house. Yesterday morning while eating breakfast, I looked up and the bird house was moving! It was jumping around and I thought a bird was inside and couldn’t get out. But after watching a bit longer, I saw a different culprit.
It was my friendly neighborhood squirrel. (click on the photo for a closer view) He is tearing it apart to get the wool. He has almost chewed completely through the felted loop. I wondered why it was looking so lumpy and out of shape.
Here he is with his stolen fiber. If you look at the lower right hand corner of the photo, you can see where he has almost chewed through four layers of felt! I’m going to get another metal hook and shorten the loop. I’ll keep you posted. I guess I need to put out another fiber/nester for him.
