Come On Down!

They teach this in ninja squirrel school!

I can’t explain how Santa can navigate himself down a chimney without falling on his jolly big butt.  But if he were a squirrel, then I’d have no trouble believing he could stealthily ease himself down to the fireplace.

This week’s Saturday Squirrel is giving a clinic on how to sneak down a vertical surface without slipping or waking up the kiddies.  He looks so determined, I almost wish I had some milk and acorns for him when he got to the bottom…

Have a great weekend and a Merry Christmas from The Nest!

    Maybe… just maybe,,, Santa is a squirrel 😮

  3. They are masters of the downward direction – I’m sure Santa attends their “How To” clinic for a refresher course every year!

    I’m always amazed when I see them on the straight down vertical–they look like they’re defying gravity! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

    • They defy gravity when their fat butts sit on some skinny little twig and don’t even bend it, let alone break it! I’m pretty sure squirrels are exempt to physics…

        I saw one in a tree the other day hanging almost upside down on the skinniest branch–it stayed there for several minutes and I was worried it was stuck, but no–it flipped around and ran back to the trunk then leapt into a neighbouring tree. Squirrel parkour!

  5. We hope you, the squirrels and all those who live on the Shelf had a marvy Christmas. 🎄
