The Squirrels Are Amongst Us

I am so afraid of these things.

In the apartment complex, where I am living there is an abundance of squirrels lurking about in the trees.

Just today, one snuck up on my as I was going up the stairs to my apartment.

I got to the top of the steps and it ran about to the ledge near a window nearby my apartment. 

I screamed out like a little scaredy cat.  The thing stared me down!!!   I didnt know what was about to happen next.

These things ATTACK!

They're getting bolder and bolder.  I have never been that close to one in my life.

They dont seem to care about human's spaces anymore .

Back in the day, they would keep their distance away from humans.

Those days are no longer, they are intruding into your walkways and driveways.

I cannot take this.

I damned near had a heart attack at the age of 32.

Thanks for your story. You aren't the only one.

You're quite welcome.
I'm glad to know there are others who have been freaked out by squirrels as well.
: )

Aha it's a result of evolution and adaption. Thank the guys who decided to build the building in the middle of their habitat. From a more human standpoint: squirrels scare the hell out of me sometimes too :D

Ha get it on video. But hey, dont shoot the lovely little things. Throw them a biscuit or somthing.
