It’s TRUE, People! This anerable squirrel has his tongue slurping out. It’s so nice of Patty the Wildlife Rescuer to hold the water faucet on for him, isn’t it?

Well, It Has To Be A Squnk

(Squirrel + Skunk = Squnk. Isn’t that the right spelling? Who knows, we’re makin’ this stuff up as we go.)

Ever seen anyone like thees? This little girl/guy was spotted in San Jose CA., and she’s/he’s called a “Piebald” sqwerl. Ah, let’s trot out The Big W for that one.

A Piebald or Pied Animal is one that has a spotting pattern of large unpigmented, usually white, areas of hair, feathers, or scales and normally pigmented patches, generally black. The colour of the animal’s skin underneath its coat is also pigmented under the dark patches and unpigmented under the white patches. Animals with this pattern may include horses, dogs, birds, cats, pigs, and cattle, as well as snakes such as the ball python. [+ SQUIRRELS. -Ed.]

Rocky The AMAZING Lil’ Sqwerl

This little dude knows how to WORK that feeding bottle!

“This little guy followed us home from getting the mail the other day. We had him for two days and he brought us so much joy! He’s now at a local rehab center for squirrels so he can learn how to go back into the wild. As you can see he loves to eat! Hope to see him on Cute Overload as we visit your site several times a day.” -Judy M.

Presenting…Skwerl Cirque Du Soleil

(We’re using Courtney’s spelling of “Skwerl” to stay consistent with the video title.)

“Starring Mr. & Mrs. Nutty. Filmed on location in Portland, OR. For me, almost as great as the Skwerl Acrobatics is hearing the hearty laughter in the background from my Dad, Aunt & Uncle.” -Video by Courtney B.
