“Some of these pictures are priceless! I’d forgotten that squirrels will eat pumpkin. The squirrels at my daughter’s house are going nuts (!) over the acorns we are leaving out for them. And looking less skinny. The acorns are gone before you even turn to leave! Maybe some pumpkin? They provide lots of entertainment for my grandson.”
“I have yet to capture any squirrels eating pumpkin. I always put it out by the tree after Halloween, and they’ll play around on it, but that’s it. Even the year I saved the seeds and goop from inside… they preferred the acorns and corn!”
Emphasis mine…. I can do that on my own quote, right?
Naturally, after making that statement, what did I look out my window the VERY NEXT DAY and see?
Yes, this little guy was gnawing away at pieces of my discarded squirrel o’lantern! I throw that thing out there every year on November 1st, and I had never seen one actually eat any of the pumpkin until this past Wednesday!
So here’s to this week’s Saturday Squirrel for proving me wrong in the cutest of ways. And for helping to naturally recycle my old Halloween decorations…
Have a great weekend everyone!
