Vacation in a cottage - Little Friends
Tourism, Ontario, Travel Guide
Of course there are countless ones. We and most visitors enjoyed the cute chipmunks. So please bring larger quantities of unsalted peanuts with shell.
We soon became friends with all the chipmunks and even recognized always especially one of them - "Stumpy" who had lost most of his tail.
They never became tired to beg for peanuts which they carried away and stored them somewhere for winter.
After a few hours they knew us and were not shy any longer.
Patiently, they waited until we opened the door of our cottage in the morning.
We also got special attention during lunch or dinner, which we always had on the picnic table in front of our cottage.
They even allowed us to touch them for a short time.
They never left any mess behind them - they did their business in the forest.
They jumped on the table, inspected what we were eating and discovered immediately their peanuts.
The chipmunks did not only climb up your legs, they jumped at you to get attention and peanuts with shelves.
The little fellows were particularly attentive when we had lunch or dinner in front of our house.
They were busy to gather and hoard peanuts for the coming winter.
They jumped onto the table, looked at what we had on the plate and just wanted one thing - peanuts.
We quickly learned that they were not satisfied with one nut or two nuts. The first nut came in the left cheek, the second in the right, and then another third was demanded, which was held with the teeth.
Only then did the little journeymen leave to fill up the storerooms.
Elizabeth once left the little glutton the whole bag
We learned very fast that they did not leave us with only one or two peanuts. They stuffed them into their mouth until their cheeks were filled up, the last peanut they were holding with their teeth.
Only then they left.
Whenever an "outsider" appeared, who was recognizable by a shortened tail, the whole pack fell upon him and drove him away.
But he did not give up and came back to receive an extra treatment.
He became the darling of Elizabeth and she gave him the name "Stumpy"!
We never were able to find the places were they were hiding all the bags of peanuts which we had purchased for them.
Naturally, there were also other animals who loved peanuts - squirrels. They were not very friendly to the little chipmunks. They chased them and were hoping that they lost some of the peanuts.
They never came to our table, but we fed them too until they were attacking our little friendly visitors.
Once the daughter of one visitor left a big bag of peanuts behind her with the order to feed them to her friends. Another girl had sent a five dollar bill I was told.
I have no doubts that all orders were properly processed by André and Susanne.
The cat from our host was always kept in the house.
André told us that she would not survive because of other wild animals.
We believe that, because when we came back the colony of chipmunks had been badly reduced by a predator.
The typical position to be successful in getting peanuts.
Who can resist?
We never got bitten!

We loved barbequing
We have never considered barbequing as work, it was always fun. You just have to get the matching drinks first
