I remember many years when I set my squirrel o’lanterns out back by the tree after Halloween being disappointed that the squirrels seemed to take no interest in playing around and nibbling on their remains. After seeing so many videos of squirrels devouring pumpkins, how could it be that my squirrels seemed to turn their nose up at such an exquisite treat? Of course, duh! I was throwing all the good shit away!
It’s the seeds and the goopy, fleshy part of the pumpkin they like! Not the carvable, but apparently inedible rind that it’s all contained in. So I made sure to save all of the messy pumpkin insides this year and tossed it out back as well. And voila! This squirrel was already partaking of the special holiday feast Friday morning!
This week’s Saturday Squirrel’s clearly in the mood for some pumpkin spice! Bon appetit!
Have a great weekend everyone!
