I knew I should’ve gotten that first floor nest…

Grey squirrels, by their nature, live in trees.  Oftentimes very high up in trees.  That’s a great idea when you’re considered to be a tasty morsel and want to avoid as many predators as possible.  But there are times when it’s pretty darn inconvenient to live so far off the ground…. like when you have to lug the groceries up 100 feet of tree bark.

This squirrel found a nice, fat, juicy nut that it would like to take home to share with its family.  He’s got a long way to climb to make it to his doorstep without managing to drop his delicious dinner… and you can tell by the look in his eye that he’s second guessing the decision to build so far up.  Next time, he should probably consider living in a tree that has an elevator.  But for now, he looks so cute as a road weary Saturday Squirrel just trying to get to his deluxe apartment in the sky…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. like my dad he said it needs a lot of effort to bring fat nuts home to the mama and me..

  2. Do they make backpacks for squirrels? Might make transporting groceries home a little easier for those little climbers!


  3. I’ve finally started to see some squirrels around here. Apparently, they are here, but they stay in the trees. Very rarely to I see one on the ground, but the other day they seemed to be having a race. It’s acorn season, so I guess it’s time to grab those nuts and hide them for the future!

    • Acorns season is one of the busiest for squirrels (After…… well, mating season, of course). They don’t even wait for the acorns to fall from my tree…. they rip them out and throw them on top of my roof. Or throw them at me if I’m trying to take their picture…

    He does look like he’s thinking something like, “holy shit, I’ve still got a long way to go with this thing!

  6. He probably stole the nut so it’s almost poetic justice for his hooliganism. LOL 🐿
