Tree Top Stuffing

I think I have room for one more peanut...

I think I have room for one more peanut…

Thanksgiving is coming up next week for those of us in the US, which for many of us will sqturday squirrel logomean stuffing our guts with the unhealthiest of foods until it starts coming out the other end.  Most squirrels are plenty stuffed by Thanksgiving time, as they build up their energy reserves all autumn long for the cold winter ahead.  Here’s a pleasantly plump little porker I caught pigging out on a peanut in my oak tree last week.  You can bet that squirrels aren’t going to leave a whole lot uneaten at their version of the Thanksgiving table, and all of the leftovers will be carefully buried underground to enjoy later…

And while I normally don’t expect political correctness from anyone, I ask that you please do not refer to my Saturday Squirrel as fat.  He is merely well fed…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. our garden squirrel will have a diet-thanksgiving this year… all the hidden nuts are Easy’s now… but I will be generous and I place some snacks next to the tree :o)

    More cushion for the pushin’.

  3. Your squirrel is very cute. We don´t have Thanksgiving Day here in Finland, and I thank for it, because now Halloween is trying to conquer this country.

    • Thanksgiving is a pretty reserved holiday compared to Halloween… and many people here feel it isn’t recognized enough due to the fact that Christmas now invades on its territory since we move straight from Halloween to Xmas…

  4. This is so precious. I was just watching two squirrels eating out of my bird feeders when I remembered it is “Saturday Squirrel Time.” I’ll remember to put out some extra peanuts and goodies for my outdoor friends on Thanksgiving.

    That was a hilarious conversation with Merbear. Methinks, ribbon snake might be a more apt description. Anyway, your squirrel looks a little husky but beautiful.

    I used to be able to roughly guess when Thanksgiving is by when Black Friday arrived, but now that Black Friday is “Black many days all in a row on Amazon” it’s not so easy…

    • It’s kinda funny watching the day (BF, not Thanksgiving) start to lose all its meaning. That’s what happens when all the retailers get too aggressive in trying to outdo each other…

  7. I wouldn’t call that squirrel fat……”pleasantly plump” maybe……or “healthy”…….neither of those should OFFEND!


  8. We are very careful about fat shaming comments around our beloved “well fed” fur children. I would never insult such a well-padded squirrel. Besides, that’s his savings account to be used for a cold day in the winter when nuts are thin on the ground.

    • I used to have a million “fat shaming” nicknames for Ody back when he was a 19 pound porker of a cat…. and he never seemed to care. He’d just roll over on his back and expect me to rub his big belly…

  9. One question…where the heck DO all those peanuts come from? I find the shells all over my yard and I haven’t had a peanut in the shell for 87 years!

    • If you have peanut shells magically appearing in your yard, I’d guess someone near you is feeding them to the squirrels. My yard is littered in pine cones despite the nearest evergreen tree being over 100 feet away. Squirrels do transport their food all over the place…
