Generally when we see squirrels in motion on the ground, they tend to be moving in one of two ways. They are either darting around like their bushy tails have caught fire, or they’re hippity hopping like it’s a gay, happy day. You don’t often see squirrels merely walking around like normal, noncrazy quadrupeds do… so I was quite charmed to see this little guy out for a leisurely stroll across the local skateboard park a couple weeks ago. He’s even toting along a tasty treat in his mouth as he casually traverses the concrete jungle. I would imagine this squirrel chose to go on walkabout since jumping around on concrete can’t feel too great on the old feet, even with those cute little pawpads acting as shock absorbers.
Little did this sciurine know it when he went stepping out on a nice sunny day, but he managed to walk his adorable little self right into one of my Saturday Squirrel posts!
Have a great weekend everyone!
