Silver Squirrel

I’m not old… I’m dignified!

You would think that a grey squirrel wouldn’t have to worry about getting old and turning gray… I mean, he’s already gray.  That’s not entirely true, though… grey squirrels actually have a lot of brown hued colors in their fur.  This squirrel, though, definitely seems to have gone through enough of life’s adventures to have earned himself a lot of gray hairs.  His tail has quite a bit of silver color in it, which really pops out in this photo for whatever reason.  Unless that’s some kind of mold…. in which case.  Ick, forget about it.  I don’t think squirrels get moldy…. even in their golden years.  Here’s a Metamucil toast to a Saturday Squirrel who been there, done that, and has the age enhancements to prove it…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Perhaps thee were too many teen squirrels in the trees house? That could make anyone turn grey prematurely.

  2. We all get grey, but this squirrel has really beautiful silver grey.
    Have a great weekend too.

  3. What a beauty, and look at those cute little squirrel hands.

  4. I laughed out loud at your comment. Oh goodness.

    That’s a cute-looking fella. I bet he likes sitting there puffing his pipe watching the younger squirrels scampering about.

  6. I just looked it up. Grey squirrels have banded tails, so they the furs always look a little haloed. Red squirrels who may not actually BE red have ear tufts in winter and don’t have the bands of color on their tails. I guess I’ve never actually seen a red squirrel. I’m not even sure they live in the U.S.

    • There are supposedly red squirrels in the US, but they’re more common in Europe. Grey squirrels carry a virus that is deadly to reds, and there’s long been a furor over the grey squirrel invasion in the UK because it’s been killing off their native reds. Fox squirrels are the more common variant to greys in this hemisphere…

  7. Oh that guy’s got a tail to be proud of! The silver is very cool…..I think he’s proud of the way he looks too because I SWEAR he’s got a grin on his face!

  8. Obviously a dude – he’s debonair, whereas dudettes get labelled all hag-like! Even in the sciurine world.
