Grease Squirrel

It looks like you’re about a quart low.

99.9% of the time, it is not a good thing for a squirrel to make physical contact with a car tire.  Many a sciurine has found out the hard way how a little indecision in the middle of the road can lead to a whole lot of bone crushing pain.  But I guess this adventurous squirrel doesn’t let all those tales about flattened ancestors keep him from getting up close and personal with the Michelin Man.  Either that, or he has a morbid sense of humor.

If I knew I had a mechanically inclined squirrel in my neighborhood, I’d have sure sought him out to do the few minor repairs my car needed at the end of the year rather than spend the majority of my now expired nine day vacation without transportation.  I’ll bet he could have had the problem fixed in no time, and probably would’ve even worked for peanuts.  Here’s to Mr. Goodnuts, The Nest’s very first ASE certified Saturday Squirrel…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hmm……obviously that car ran through something quite tasty/aromatic on the highway at some point in the recent past….I think he’s having a snack, not checking out the oil !!


    • The reality behind this picture is actually greater than what I captured. This squirrel was actually flipping out! I think the cold weather had finally gotten to his brain. This was the only good picture I got of him was when he jumped onto that tire and stayed there more more than a couple seconds. I hardly ever get to see a squirrel in full flip-out mode, and when I do it’s so hard to get a good picture of them acting crazy!

      • We see a lot of flip-outs in the Spring but RARELY when it’s five degrees out. I think all of us have just about HAD IT with this freakin’ freeze spell!

  2. Q: Why did the hedgehog cross the road?
    A: To visit his flatmate.

    Please don’t let the car move, please don’t let the car move…

  4. I always tell the local wild turkeys that it only takes ONE tire. They still attack the car. It really would ONLY take ONE tire.

  5. I dunno…that squirrel strikes me as an air-thief more than anything or a 4-legged vandal. 😇
