Spazzy Squirrel


sqturday squirrel logoYou may recall that I included the above picture in last week’s edition of the Saturday Squirrel, and those who could get over how much it actually looked like a right-side-up Bigfoot might have been wondering what could have possessed a squirrel to do a backflip.

Well, the answer is that this little guy was just flat out going batshit crazy the day I was taking these pictures.  He did a prolonged flipping and flopping routine near the tree where I was taking these pictures, then about a half hour later, he trotted across the yard and began doing the same thing in front of the utility pole.  Here’s a picture I got of that…

Someone get a straightjacket.

You can tell by the where he is relative to the pole that he isn’t just climbing down and hopping off onto the ground.  That’s how high the was flopping in the air while this was going on.  I actually went outside after I took this picture because I feared the poor thing was having bouts of seizures.  As soon as I approached, he perked right up and took off down along the ditch.

So a couple days ago, I was gazing out the window, and what did I see but the same squirrel doing the same flip flopping routine in front of the same pole!!!  Here’s some shots from that adventure…

Here we go again...

I'm so en fuego I have to stop, drop, and roll!

And then there is this picture… which looks a bit gruesome at first, but trust me, the little guy was perfectly OK!

Hey!  I'm not dead!  I just want some belly scritches!

Hey! I’m not dead! I just want some belly scritches!

This truly nutty squirrel is a joy to watch, and if I believed in reincarnation, I’d swear my beloved cat Spilly had come back to this earth with a bushy tail.  I just hope it’s all an act, and that the dude doesn’t have some serious squirrelly issues…

Have a great weekend, but don’t get too crazy!
