Jill The Sqwerlio (Part II)

THIS JUST IN: S.C. Sqwerlios Need Your Help!

With the flooding in South Carolina there are hundreds of baby orphaned and sick squirrels and other wildlife. The South Carolina rehabbers are overwhelmed and need help. North Carolina rehabbers are organizing to assist but it’s a huge undertaking and they need donations to help purchase urgent supplies – especially baby squirrel formula. Wildlife rehabbers depend entirely on the kindness and generosity of the public as they do not receive any federal, state or local funding. To help, visit here and click on the “I Want To Help” tab, or send them urgent supplies on their Amazon Wish List.

[*Note: These are photos from a rehabber Betsy who is helping organize this effort and is close to that area but these are not the actual storm squirrels. -Ed.]

Jill The Sqwerlio (Part I)

photogenic-rescue-squirrel-jill-52As the title suggests, there’s going to be a Part II, and we’re gonna save that for next Toesday. If you think these are Prosh- you ain’t see nuthin’ yet.

Louisiana-based Jill was rescued after she fell from her tree during a hurricane!

Here’s her Instagram, too.

And…Back To The Big Apple…Again

What IS going on in Noo Yawk? Yesterday it was Pizza Rat…then just an hour and a half ago it was Health Food Store Mouse/Cat…and now it’s Shake Shack Squirrel!

(Gothamist and Mashable.)

Mission: Impossible

“Your mission, should you choose to accept it**, is to scale the pole and capture the bird feed. As always, should any member of your IM force be captured or killed, Cute Overload will disavow all knowledge of your actions. Of course, you can always just hop over to the birdbath. This YouTube video will self-destruct end in one minute, 21 seconds. Good luck Jim.”

“We got this video of a squirrel trying to get up a feeder we sprayed with silicone lubricant. He was leery at first but after two tries, he gave up,” says Toni W. of Colorado Springs, CO.

[**Note: When did they ever NOT accept it? Did Jim ever long for a cozy 9-5 gig, or just wanna yell, “Are you nuts? Not a chance. We’re outta here!” -Ed.]

“Hey Honey? Have You Seen My Car Windows Towel?”

“I left it on the front porch a minute ago to come get some Windex, and now….it’s gone!”

(Boing!! Boing!!)

Pickles And Hazel

Part of the appeal of Squirrels- to me, at least- is you never know quite what they’re gonna do at any particular moment. For no reason at all, they’ll just BOING go straight up in the air. Like Pickles here!

And this is Hazel, methodically picking through the nut selections for the day.

From Eric W in Iowa.


[I just found this out here on the porch railing—I SWEAR—so I am gonna help myself!]

From Lucy B., who adds “Usually I give him crunchy peanut butter on a cracker but this was one of those small individual peanut butter packs, like jelly, that you get on the free breakfast buffet. Brought some back from beach and wanted to see what Mr. Squirrel would do with it. Loved watching him.”
