Gertrude Marks Her First Anniversary

A Handmaid News

Gertrude (alias Sunbeam in cartoon-land) arrived at Cor Jesu Monastery on November 11th, 2020. We are happy to report she’s grown into her squirrel deterrence duties, despite our losing the battle of the wooden steps. She loves being outside, rolling in the gravel, and offering her belly for pets. She also loves sitting in the woods quietly on a log listening as every squirrel within eyesight screeches and chatters alerts from the trees. While she has them ‘treed’, they can’t come and eat more wood.
