get yourself a Slug. You know, those little guys who slide on the ground leaving a slime trail. I have one that comes on my porch every night looking for a little canned cat food. I give him a bit and yell at the cats if they try to take it from him. Slugs are cheap pets. And they get along with cats. So do Opossum btw, but I don't think you have them in England. They love cat food, and the cats let them have it, no problems. I think they are cute, most people think they are ugly. Neighbors would lynch me if they knew I give them food when they show up. They get about the size of a fat cat.

Idea Matt, hang that picture of Jordan on the feeder with his glass in his mouth, that should detour him. Oh, wait, that might scare the birds as well! laugh.gif J/K DR smile.gif

Matt, there was another thread with someone who attached firecrackers to someones legs. Perhaps that's something you could apply here... the squirrel has a long inviting tail. blink.gif
