Cheeky

21 January is Squirrel Appreciation Day.

In our yard, we have Eastern Grey Squirrels, the black-furred version of the Eastern Grey Squirrel, and Fox Squirrels, and is a Squirrel Heaven; lots of trees, rooflines to run across, and plenty of notches, crooks, gardens, and such to bury their food.
While on my 'hood walk.
The window next to my desk; this critter crawled up the window screen.
A blast from the past: Celestial Angel and Chuck being highly entertained by a squirrel enjoying the helicopter maple seeds that came to rest on the flat roof over our front room.

Squirrels are a bit like tree cats, no?

Well, anyhow...I think they are cute!

Squirrels are sooooo cute. And we especially love that tailio dangling down the window screen (mol).

Tree Cats!!! Indeed, how aptly re-named!

I'm not sure about tree cats term, but at least they don't get stuck up trees. There were 5 high-flying tree rats near me, chasing each other across three trees, and boy, they were skilled at aerial acrobatics. 10 out of ten for the performance!

We like squirrels. We have red squirrels here but we haven't see any recently.

We think they are cute, too! Ava loves watching the tree cats here every morning. :)

Dearest Eastsidecats,
Yes, in German they call them Eichkatze which translates to Oakcat...
We got plenty of oaks as well and squirrels.
Hugs,
Mariette

That second photo is amazing. I'm going to show my husband that one. Besides being hilarious, your well timed shot showcases the rodent tail beneath all the fluff. lol Angel and Chuck were adorable. I know they're still missed. ~hugs~ By the way, I made popcorn last night. :D

Those squirrels really can be most entertaining!

They are certainly entertaining, and Ms. G calls them tree rats. I like yours better.

I love watching the squirrels. They are quite entertaining.

As entertaining as birds to a cat, and maybe - at least in a cat's imagination - more obtainable...

That screen climbing squirrel needs to be taught a lesson about personal space.
