Love on the Quarterdeck

I'm not sure what it is about my house that makes rodents behave amorously. Aragorn and Boromir had a relatively quiet day today, gnawing apart their new treehouse and taking turns on the wheel. But outside, where the snow was melting and we had beautiful icicles hanging from the eaves, we were treated to the romance of...

...two bushy-tailed gray squirrels running around the deck.
Playing Master and Commander.

The captain climbed the, err, mast to see what was going on, while the doctor was content to peer around looking for interesting flora and fauna.

But Jack soon got lonely, and after a quick look around to make sure no midshipmen were watching...

...he snuck around and groomed Stephen's head...

..and other parts.

And then they curled up together and Stephen slept while Jack stood watch.
Then they jumped on the neighbor's deck and tried to leap onto the wind chimes, but maybe they were just practicing boarding foreign ships or something.
And they lived happily ever after. The end.

Incidentally, I am quite sure that the above is ashinae's fault, even though we live in different countries and she has never met my squirrels.
