This is the squirrel that I have named Fugly. He has been coming around for a couple weeks now. The photos have been taken through the window & don't show the true horrifically visual fear that I first felt when I saw it climb on the bird aviary. I thought I was looking at a rat!!
Hence the name Fugly...a term that I learnt a few years ago from my boys in their teen years. The word 'fugly', meant - fuc_in ugly! I gasp as you are doing now - but somehow over the years the word has applied to different visuals.
And this being one of them!
This rodent, without its bushy tail looks just like a rat!
