Unpretty?

Awwww, another.... um, cute squirrel photo.

Awwww, another…. um, cute squirrel photo.

For all of the reasons people have to dislike the pest-like nature of squirrels, their one saving grace has always been the fact that they are so adorable that their cuteness can even melt the most crusty heart.  Their big shiny eyes, button nose and ready smile are all wrapped up in the cutest sqturday squirrel logofur coat you’ve seen…. making them nature’s model of animal beauty.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ugly squirrel before…. though I guess if one came close to looking like he forgot to line up when Mother Nature was handing out good looks, it’s this one above I came across at the park last year.  He’s kinda haggard looking… maybe an older squirrel whose best days have long since scurried off into the sunset.  Or maybe he just woke up and hasn’t had a chance to tend to his appearance yet.  Can we get this squirrel some makeup?

And he does look a bit melancholy laying out on that branch.  Awwww…. poor little guy.  I didn’t mean to pick on you and single you out for not having that classic sciurine look that practically defines cute.  You may not induce a chorus of squees, but you do have a unique charm to your physical appearance that more than qualifies you to be this week’s alternatively adorable Saturday Squirrel.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I think he’s a senior citizen squirrel and you’d best be careful or you’re liable to be picketed by the Senior Squirrel Association for age discrimination! 😉

    • Oh geez, I sure don’t need to have a bunch of elderly squirrel going out of their way to whack me with their canes every time I go outside! I’ll issue a heartfelt, automated apology…

  2. maybe the lonely guy needs a partner to have some fun like the squirrels in your post from yesterday? :o)

  3. Awwwww. Somebody give that squirrel a hug.

    Maybe he’s just stoned?

    Aw, the poor thing looks rather sickly.

    • I remember nothing about this squirrel since I just ripped the pic from last year’s archive, but I think part of the problem is that I caught him at a weird angle and pose. It definitely looks like something’s not quite right with him, though….

  6. JackieP says:

    He’s probably from an older generation. We oldsters get a bum rap all the time. I’m in his/her corner.

  7. Maybe he just had a big night with too much acorn brew? Or, poor little guy, is simply … old.

  8. I agree with Marilyn – that squirrel looks hung over! He needs a bloody mary and some Chinese delivery.

    He’s the old grizzled squirrel that everyone goes to for advice. He’s known as “Old” something – “Old Tom”, “Old Pete”, something like that. He tends to snap at the young ‘uns and start most of his sentences with “When I were young…”

    In short, when the chips are down, he’s the “go to squirrel”. Aah, good Old Pete.

  10. I think he is a senior squirell and therefore very squeeee and awww.😄

  11. Unrequited love…it’ll ruin the prettiest face!
