There's Something Stuck up in the Ceiling

There's something stuck up in the ceiling
and I don't know how many there is
But it's been there all week long.

Well the furniture is moved from underneath the infested side
just in case it falls from the ceiling again
It makes me want to cry.

There's something stuck up in the ceiling
and it makes a lot of noise
and we found some nuts and bones.

Well, we didn't know that squirrels ate bones
but apparently these rodents
eat more than the insulation in our home

There's something stuck up in the ceiling
and the live trap has some nuts
but it doesn't seem to work

Well, the kids are terrified to eat their breakfast anymore
and my little ones are hiding
behind closed doors.

There's something stuck up in the ceiling
and it's freaking me out
'cause I hear it running back and forth

Well there's a reason they call it a drop panel ceiling
A flipping squirrel already fell
inside my house on Sunday

There's something stuck up in my ceiling
and I'm ready to move out
but that's kind of hard to do

I have visions of the movie Ratatouille going on
and I have a creepy feeling
more than one squirrel is along

There's something stuck up in my ceiling
and I wonder if it's found
the old Decon from years ago

Well it would be disgusting if it died up there
and I can't imagine the smell
that would be terrible to bear

There's something stuck up in the ceiling
and we've called Animal Control
and they won't come do a thing

The live trap has a cookie, peanuts and some peanut butter
but apparently our litte friend
already has a stash that's better

There's something stuck up in the ceiling
and I'm losing my mind
I just want to get my safe house back.

And it's been there all week long.

Oh Laura I'm so sorry about your squirrel troubles! I love squirrels, but OUTSIDE my house. Try popcorn in the traps, that seemed to work pretty well for my aunt. She had a squirrel problem this past year. They ate her shaker shingle roof (12 grand down the tubes for a new one!) and caused a bunch of other damage, like eating keepsakes stored in the attic.

My experience with things in the ceiling is limited to one very frustrated grackle that scared me to death by bursting out of the furnace, and then rushing me while my head was stuck in the drop ceiling. It was a thrilling experience...

Funny song but not so funny of a situation. I'd totally be creeped out. I hope that whatever's up there, leaves in a good way (not the dead-rotting-carcass way).

Oh dear Laura. I hope you can get rid of it/them soon and get back to normal life!

Happy Halloween to the Binghams and their new tenant. If he's still there, I'd charge rent!
