    I just had to tell you about my past couple of days. There was a squirrel in our fireplace and I tried to get it out but it kept going up in the chimmney but wouldn't go all the way up. 2 days gone by still there well tonight I got one of my extra parrots cage and put it over there. Put some food in and waited well he got in the cage I pulled the door shut and tried locking it called my friend (in the Kit) she ran out and put the clip on . LOW AND BEHOLD . Rocky got out . ran thru the house . Jumped on our friend Melissa who was sleeping didn't even wake up. the dogs ran after it and it jumped on her again ran in the room dogs chasing in the other room then the cat got into it,chased it over by the birds around and around also the dogs were chasing the cat at the same time then we got it in the kitchen . closed it off . It went up and down the walls,counters, and just missed my head. LOL then it went under the stove and out I finally got it back in the same cage made sure it was locked good. But he made sure he would eat a peanut or two before I let him loose. Boy what a night. never laughed so much and no video.

    Glad you got him out safely! Noone got bit or anything. Sometimes those squirrels can be very cheeky!

    I'm surprised that he still had all that energy in him after being in there those days. I just wished I had a video. I told my son when he came home tonight and he couldn't stop laughing. So I named myself the Proffessional Squirrell Catcher. :)

    It almost sounds like an action movie!
    Isn't there a TV show about these brothers that come to your home to capture undesirable animals? Maybe they could have managed it a little better--but it makes a great story!

    That is so funny, but a worry too I imagine. Our experience wasn"t quite that adventureous, but we had a raccoon go down our chimney, thankfully it didn't get in the house, the damper was closed. The "pro" came out, put a cage on top and trapped it, then we spent$$$ putting a wire chimney topper on . The funniest time was when we were trying to catch a mouse, lots of action with that one!

    Yes, this was what I was going to suggest. Or at least some sort of hardware cloth teepee till you could get some really experienced person up there to do it.

    It sounds like a Chevy Chase movie "Christmas Vacation" where the squirrel gets in the house. You should send a copy of the viseo to Funniest Home Videos TV show. This is too funy not to share....(still wiping my eyes from laughing)

    yep we had to put a cage type thing on top of your fire place chimney too. something fell inside the lining and our cat kept watch over the fireplace for days. we heard claws once in a while on the metal but no other noises. sad to keep hearing that and not being able to help what ever it was in there.
