SQUIRRELS! We've been feeding( a piece of bread once a week or so) our outdoor friend who lives in the tree on the sidewalk outside of our home. Today he tried to break in. He was seriously scratching at the bay window off the kitchen to get in as well as the picture above which is the window above our sink.
Any ideas to get rid of him besides killing him? I just want him to stop trying to get in! Obviously don't feed him anymore, but I don't feel like we can even go outside on our deck because he's gotten too comfortable with my kids being around.
Any ideas! Thanks in advance!

The first thing that comes to mind is he was a rescue, that has been hand raised and released when he got to be to much to handle... He will leave if you don't feed him... another good idea someone said, is to feed him from a squirrel feeder, once the spring comes he will be off making babies and gathering food that is plentiful ... I would be shocked if he came near your kids... they are usually skittish even if were hand raised once they are released... I have raised a few for a wildlife center, when released at the center they would see me and chatter at me but never came near me...
