My wife tends to believe that I'm more observant than most people, especially when it comes to small insignificant details. Have you ever gotten the sense that things around you were changing, but just couldn't put your finger on what the changes were? I live in southwestern PA and road kill is a common sight. Normally you find a lot of white tail deer, raccoons, skunks, possum and a large number of cats. Occasionally you may even see a flattened squirrel. Well at least it WAS occassionally until this spring. Recently my drive to work each day has become a trip through the squirrel kill zone. I know the one day I counted 15 of them on my trip in to work and my trip is just over 17 miles one way, that's almost one per mile. If you have ever come upon a squirrel, you know they have trouble making a choice of going right or left, but recently it seem they run directly at you, what's that all about? Are they hoping we will run off the road and into a tree? Have squirrels suddenly become the terrorists of the animal kingdom and are trying to destroy mankind; a car load at a time? It is believed that animals can sense things such as earthquakes long before we humans. So what kind of disaster are the squirrels sensing that would lead them to commit squirrel suicide? Or is it as simple as an over population of squirrels in western PA and mother nature is thinning them out? So what strange things are happening in your world?

Being a man, I understand the feeling. In my youth, I would chase wild pussy all over the place, much like a squirrel. It's not suicide, but instead horney squirrel chasing after squirrel pussy.
