Grey, Fox and Flying Squirrels
The Beaver of North America has a world-wide reputation for its wonderful instinct and shrewdness. The general appearance of this animal is that of a very large muskrat with a broad flattened tail, and the habits of both these animals are in many respects alike. The beaver is an amphibious creature and social in its habits of living, large numbers congregating together and forming little villages. The muskrat has this same propensity, but the habitation of the beaver is on a much more extensive scale. These huts or "Beaver lodges," are generally made in rivers and brooks; although sometimes in lakes or large ponds. They are chiefly composed of branches, moss, grass and mud, and are large enough to accommodate a family of five or six.
The form of the "lodges" is dome-like, and it varies considerably in size. The foundation is made on the bottom of the river, and the hut is built up like a mound, often twenty feet in diameter and projecting several feet above the surface of the water. The walls of this structure are often five or six feet thick, and the roofs are all finished off with a thick layer of mud laid on with amazing smoothness. These huts form the winter habitations of the beavers, and as this compost of mud, grass and branches becomes congealed into a solid mass by the severe frosts of winter, it can easily be seen that they afford a safe shelter against any intruder and particularly the wolverine, which is a most deadly enemy to the beaver. So hard does this frozen mass become as to defy even the edges of iron tools, and the breaking open of the "Beaver houses" is at no time an easy task. Causing many duck hunters to employ the use of dynamite! Beavers work almost entirely in the dark; and a pond which is calm and placid in the day time will be found in the night to be full of life and motion, and the squealing and splashing in the water will bear evidence of their industry. Lest the beavers should not have a sufficient depth of water at all seasons, they are in the habit of constructing veritable dams to ensure that result.
The beavers, alarmed at the invasion of their sanctums, make for the banks, and the ready huntsmen stationed at the various holes, watch for their victims beneath the openings, until a violent motion or discoloration of the water betrays their passage beneath. The entrance to the holes in the bank is then instantly closed with stakes and the beaver is made prisoner in his burrow. When the depth of the burrow will admit, the arm of the hunter is introduced, and the animal pulled out, but otherwise a long hook lashed to a pole is employed for this purpose. Scores of beavers are sometimes taken in this way in a few hours. Spearing is also often successfully resorted to, and when the ice is thin and transparent the beavers may be clearly observed as they come to the surface, beneath the ice, for air.

Raccoons In Chimneys
While some of us may think raccoons are cute, many who suffer nightly trash raids from these little "masked bandits" really do not find them to be so adorable, in particular when they scatter the trash all over our yards. If you're an example of these unfortunate souls who might be suffering from raccoons in your trash, attic, or yard, you are probably searching for a type of raccoon deterrent to keep these critters at bay. There are various options available, however if you are looking for an affordable and easy way, why don't you consider creating your own homemade raccoon repellent?
There are numerous simple and proven ways for you create repellents with the use of some quite common food ingredients and household items. Raccoons possess a strong sense of smell, so the idea is to try to use items that contain strong or sharp odors which will deter them from coming near the trash. Below are some of the most common ones that could be made easily and speedily.
This deterrent is more effective for taste than it is for smell. Raccoons are turned off from the taste of vinegar, so simply immerse discarded foodstuffs such as corn cobs in vinegar for a couple of hours and set the items close to the trash. Also, spray the garbage can with vinegar so the raccoon associates that bad taste with the trash as a whole.
These are just a couple of the easy ways to construct homemade raccoon repellents, but you can always experiment with what can work in your case. Keep under consideration that it is advisable to use items that possess a really strong or sharp stench and also remember to be vigilant about applying it frequently. With time you should discover the raccoons will eventually have to agree with you that yes, your trash is just plain stinky.

Ever since I started rehabilitating orphaned and injured squirrels many years ago, I would occasionally read a reference to squirrels "purring." Among the numerous squirrels I've raised from infancy or toddler hood, I had never heard a "purr" from any of them. Chirps, barks and squeals, yes, but purrs, no!
I have a handicapped squirrel named Lucky who has been part of our family for almost two years. According to conventional Rehabilitation standards, I'm supposed to euthanize her because; " If you cannot return an animal to the wild, it should be euthanized!" Other so-called "experts" have said; "Squirrels only make good pets for the first six months of their lives, then they become too wild and unpredictable to safely keep as pets." While I agree that a healthy squirrel with no physical handicap should ultimately be allowed to choose to return to the wild, I contend that a squirrel has at least the "potential" to be a good and loving pet! But, I'm a maverick when it comes to agreeing with conventional wisdom!
The purr appears to be a willingness for social interaction. If I walk up to her cage and talk to her and say her name, she eventually will come to the side of the cage and check me out. Since she is a blind squirrel, when she realizes it's me, she starts quietly purring, or as I call it, "oinking," indicating that she knows who I am and she's willing to come out as soon as I open the cage. The conclusion I draw from this is that squirrels purr when they feel safe, contented and willing to interact with others! It makes me feel really good to think that our Lucky girl feels safe and contented and that she is able to verbalize that to us!
