Stephen L. Tvedten is my new hero. :D

Those dam beavers and their dam ingenuity. ;)

I am writing to say that I have grown extremely agitated concerning the new residents on my property: a pair of squirrels who are not paying rent. I do not believe that my elm tree is an authorized living space. :roll:

Does the tree have oil/electricity installed? If those buggers aren't paying, you should turn it off. That kind of stuff can get rather expensive, especially in winter.
I am anti-"txt talk." I support good grammar. I am part of the "Save the Vowels" movement. For your sanity and mind, type out your damn words.

Thank you

Good idea! I'll cut the water, too. They'll leave as soon as they realize they can't take showers or watch their midday soaps!

We had a family of ants here awhile back. Not only were they not paying rent, but they were also using my & the other tenants' premises as thoroughfare.

I have frogs living in my pond. what if one of them drowns? would I be liable? And as for spiderwebs when did they last get planning permission?
Best regards

I have a squirrel that drops onto the roof (five feet above my head) at exactly ten minutes past sunrise every morning, and runs across the roof to the daytime tree at the other end of the house, and back again in the evening. Am I legally entitled to install tiny toll booths on my ridge beam, or is there some concept of common use that will interfere with that money (or at least acorn) making endeavor?
