We squirrels at our house. We have two that visit almost everyday and a third that comes occasionally. One of our three bird feeders is especially for the squirrels. They also enjoy the fruit of our ornamental pear trees. We can be entertained for hours and hours by their antics and silliness.


The squirrels (or squirties, as we like to call them) don’t even care that we watch them since most of us are confined to our catio. They ignore us and continue munching with delight their sunflower seeds, even when we are just inches away.

We know that some of our followers are not fond of squirrels and that some actually loathe them. We also know they can be very destructive, but for kitty amusement value, they cannot be beat.

As we did last year, we dedicate this post to our mom’s friend, Mary Jane, a true squirrel lover.

P.S. We will not do our usual Wordless Wednesday post as this is publishing so late in the day. See you all the following day for “Thankful Thursday.”
