This is Dortmund. He is a squirrel.
Until recently Dortmund and his family were living in my attic. He and his friends were chewing up the shingles and gnawing at the boards. They’d made quite a hole, and quite a mess.
Finally I had to hire a guy to come and install one-way trap doors over Dortmund’s squirrel holes. That way, Dortmund and the gang could get out, but then they couldn’t get back in again.
Now Dortmund and his family are stuck outside. They have to deal with Nature again, and they have no central heating, and no cosy fibreglass insulation to sleep in.
Sometimes Dortmund climbs up a tree outside my bedroom window, and makes Squirrel Alarm Noises while my cats sit and watch in frustration.
I think Dortmund is a bit of a jerk really.
