Suspicious squirrels have squinty eyes, Kim and Marcea!

  3. I want to nom those ears.

  4. Kim at Coast & Canyon says:

    These two orphaned baby ground squirrels arrived on their own at Coast & Canyon Wildlife Rehabilitation. After a health check, they’re matched with other babies their size ~ they do so much better with a buddy to snuggle, play and grow up with. This is the moment they met for the first time. These two best buds are now in an outdoor enclosure ~ the last step in preparing them to be released back into the wild in a few weeks.

  5. y’all remember that I Love Lucy episode with Harpo Marx? The mirror part?

    (can anyone help a girl out with a video clip?)

  10. Thanks for the info, Kim, and thanks also for all of the good work you do! I hope these two little ones (and all of your other resqtes) have long happy lives when they are released.

    Proper way to play patty cake:

  14. As my erudite son would say of the one on the right – “Squirrel wants ice cream.” (That is his answer whenever I ask him what the squirrels outside are doing. Who knows why.)

  15. firdie… I have done something good/terrible which does nothing at all to help my case…
    I’ve signed up to volunteer for a tiger rescue as a fund-raiser. *hangs head*

    standing firm in re housecats, tho

  16. Thanks for this link — I’ve always loved this clip! The voice-over actors get it JUST right!

  17. Mary (the first) says:

    omg this is hilarious. I haven’t seen it before! thanks!!

  18. Mary (the first) says:

    This reminded me of the little stuffed animals you can get, usually before Valentine’s day, that have magnets in their lip area (and sometimes paws also) so they will be pulled into a kiss anytime their faces come close. They look just like this!

  19. fleurdamour says:

    More like paddy-WHACK!

  20. Awwww. Love a good rescute story.

  21. *tsk tsk*….it’s okay Tracylee…it’s okay. Tigers are big kitties. 🙂

  22. He may be right–I suspect that squirrels pretty much always want ice cream.

  23. Fird Birfle says:

    tracylee: now THAT ain’t NO kinda “turrible”, in MY book !!!

    but it does rather add an attractive clear, shiny coat of glossy fingernail polish on a Thesis paper that I’ve been writing, of late …..

    *Wink, wink*
    *Nudge, nudge* 😉

  24. Fird Birfle says:


    *shakes “Kitty Cats Are Wonderful” pompoms for tracylee!!!

  25. Two little squirrels, sitting in a tree. K – I – S – S – I – N – G!

  26. I know that I pretty much always want ice cream. Why shouldn’t squirrelios be the same?

  27. Pattycake? PATTYCAKE?

    Ehn, couldn’t find the video of that exact scene, so…this’ll do

  28. dangit…how do you do the videos again?
