The only critters who are entitled to wear real fur are those critters who grow their own… and this squirrel has amassed quite the fluffy blanket over himself. That’s not unusual in itself… squirrels remain active during the winter months, and need all of that bulk fluff to keep from freezing to death. Winter squirrels always look extra cute due to their furry exteriors….
However what’s a bit odd in this situation is that you can see greenery sprouting up all around this squirrel. In fact, I took this photo at the park last April 10th, by which time Spring has usually sprung enough to reduce the coats of squirrels to somewhat more normal levels.
But not this guy… he wants to be ready for that last surprise cold snap that seems to hit every late April. Or maybe he’s just more fashionable than his peers. Either way, this adorable little fuzzball should warm the hearts of all of my Saturday Squirrel readers, regardless of the current season…
Have a great weekend everyone!
