That's putting it mildly.  The ones here will sit on a rock and yell at our 
old cat (the only one who goes outside - really fat and lazy) until he 
finally goes for it.  Then, when caught, they go limp like dead. When the cat 
puts the chippy down, it is off like a flash, only to stop and yell "NYEH, 
NYEH!" at the cat as soon as it thinks it is out of reach.  
My whole back bank is a warren, and the entire back lawn (that's a polite 
term for weed patch) is full of holes.  The same cat (not much brighter than 
the chipmunk) will sit by one of the holes for half an hour or more until the 
chippie comes up out of another and yells at him.  Maybe this is the way they 
both get their jollies.
