23. his new home
is about 3 feet from the curb. The street past that curb is the feeder street for a strip mall, and the drivers would be generally unbothered to run down a human to get to their starbucks, nermind a critter. On one side is apartments. on the otherside a completely paved lot, and then a major street. I doubt he is long for this world if this is is plan for a home.

And then there is the fact that for him to get into or out of his den necessarily uses the same path as my only way of getting into and out of my den. These are apartments, without a real yard. He is small now, but critters have a way of growing. And I would hate to meet him some dark night when I am taking out the trash. It would likely result in injury to one or both of us.

Plus he seems to have gotten to the elevated strawberries as well.

I am afraid cohabitation seems likely to end in one form of tragedy or another.
