Get an outdoor cat. My yard was overrun by chipmunks and squirrels. Socks the hunter cat took care of the chipmunks in short order, and the squirrels saw what happened and decided to stay away.Anyone have any advice for those of us living in squirrel country? We're planning to put up a carport just to keep the squirrel poop off, but have been worried about possible damage. Haven't had it in the past, but we've got some nasty ones here, and any helpful hints would be appreciated.
