  1. Love squirrels!

  2. The idea behind Squirrel Appreciation Day is that it’s the day when there’s the leaf amount of natural food available in the environment (on average) for squirrels, so the creators of the holiday would like you to feed squirrels as an act of kindness.

    We piled up nuts outside this morning, though so far they are preferring the bird feeders.

    I’ll put out extra nuts, seed and some timothy hay. We’re back in the deep freeze here in the Chicago area …. Brrrrrrrr.

  4. Yes, I started putting “wild critter feed,” a mix of sunflower seeds, corn, and peanuts, on the ground years ago, with the hopes of keeping them out of the bird feeders. HAHAHAHAHA…. But my kittehs and I do love watching them. 🙂

  5. I never thought about putting out timothy hay! I put out some bread today cos I didn’t have anything else, but I’ll do the hay in a.m. 🙂

  6. Truly a skwerl overload! Love the rope video and music!

    I like the teeny tiny black skwerl with the white stripe down its head. 😮

  8. They named their squirrels Thelma and Louise…

  9. If those babes cause any chaos, that place deserves it. Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy.

  11. Oh my goodness this is adorable.
