We have a proliferation of chipmunks in our garden right now. In fact we're virtually tripping over the blasted things. This summer we have snatched a few from the jaws of death. Carmen, our cat, has a very strong hunting instinct and we try to keep her indoors but she streaks by us like greased lightning as soon as we open the door, returning in seconds with a chipmunk in her mouth. One was at large in the house for two days before I was able to catch and release it.
