Can I Eat In Peace?

Don’t touch my corn, and we’ll be cool…

This isn’t quite the same villainous stare the evil squirrel I showed you two weeks ago was beaming… but he does seem a bit perturbed that there may be a human presence.  Look at how his ears are so far back, that they actually point to a spot directly over his head.  And there’s that kinda sideways glance as he nibbles on his treat, while at the same time making sure his lunchtime intruder isn’t up to no good.  Don’t worry, buddy.  The only thing I plan on taking is your picture to show off as this week’s Saturday Squirrel.  No matter how nefarious your glance may be towards the camera, everyone will still think you’re as cute as a button…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. He is cute as a button…..and enjoying his corn snack too. Far as he’s concerned he’s got the best seat in town!

    Keep the corn coming and no one gets hurt…
    😉

  3. That pose suggests squirrels are not the best of share-ers.🐿🌽

  4. I’m not sure how you even spotted him; he blends in so well! 🙂

    He’s probably had bad experiences in the past with humans nicking his nibbles.

  6. Do squirrels eat in the middle of the night? In the dark? I got a new (huge) feeder and before I went to bed, around midnight, I turned on the light on the porch and many creatures fled the feeders. Some looked like squirrels, the others flew so I’m assuming birds. But I didn’t know squirrels eat at night? Do you know if they do? It explains how come the feeders are often half-empty between filling them in the evening and the next morning!

    • Squirrels are pretty diurnal, so I’d guess they were probably some other kind of critters. The only time I’ve ever seen squirrels outside after dark is when it starts raining and they seek better cover than what they have in the tree…

      • It turns out, they are flying squirrels. About a dozen of them. Cutest things I’ve EVER seen. If there were an international cuteness contest, these guys would win. See today’s post!

  7. They looked a bit small to be squirrels, but they were very furry and fluffy … baby squirrels?

    Awww, he is cute as a button. Or, maybe the saying should be “cute as a squirrel.” That would make a lot more sense to me!

    • They make squirrel buttons, so why not cute as a squirrel button? I was putting packages of buttons up in the fabrics aisle a few weeks ago, and we have a “woodland creatures” set that has buttons shaped like squirrels, foxes…. even a skunk! Those actually were cute buttons!

  9. Geez….I don’t see much of the squirrel’s here. They live in a tree without leaves in the yard behind us. They must’ve stored lots of goodies as no one is running out cause mom forgot to get the staples.

  10. You do have them. Not in as heavy a concentration as we do, but you also need a woods for them to live in. If you put up a feeder and fill it with black sunflower seeds and bits of fruit and small nuts and other grains — and the area needs to be very dark (we have no streetlights or houselights on the deck) … you might see them. I thought these were THE cutest thing I’ve seen lately.

    I guess gratitude is not one of this squirrel’s traits. You can feed him corn, but do not watch him eat. Love the post.
