Sweet Squirrel


Sweet...and very brave to be seen in our yard!
He lives in the neighbor's tree but has a lot
of treats buried on our property.
I watched him dig up this nut
and take a seat outside my window.
Too cute!

  1. He is cute. I love squirrels. I know they're not great for gardens... but I love them. We used to feed them as kids, to my father's dismay!

    1. I fed this one last winter....peanuts in the shell, raw and unsalted. He knows there are cats about and it very
      careful and boy can he run fast! haha....

  3. You say you watched him or her, but I wonder just how many cats were watching as well?

    1. Several, I'm sure! And as I'm typing this, I'm watching a baby squirrel in the tree!
      Cute little guy and he's looking right at me. Hope he stays safe!

    2. He's thinking "That's a nice lady, I bet she will bring some nuts out for me"!

    3. He might be! But I'm afraid he isn't as wise as his daddy and might not watch for the cats too well!

    1. What's with all that tail dancing and twitching? It surely means something!

  5. One brave guy
    And sure isn't shy
    Bet he loves to tease though
    As a few tease the dogs at the other show

  6. One of the very first prints I bought to furnish my first apartment in my early 20's was the squirrel by Albrecht Durer. Now I see them drinking from my fountain from time to time and also burying and digging up nuts. Lynne in NC

      Hope they all survive the feline security duty!

  8. Very cute fellow. Much more so than rats! They are all getting fat on bird seed around here! Surviving the cats could be a real chore for them! Circle of life stuff can be a trial sometimes.

  12. Hi Betsy - they are cute to look at .. when I was growing up we had red squirrels - sadly these 'thugs' killed them off! They are wonderful - but they aren't very nice and not very good to have around ... well your home is protected with your beautiful cats .. cheers Hilary

    1. Yes, they are cute but destructive if they decide to set up home in your rafters! Thankfully, we have Roof Top Surveillance Duty here. haha.

  13. I told Little Red to watch his back too. These kittens are fast as lightening!

  14. Perhaps the kitty cats are secretly double agents protecting his hidden nuts? !
