164 Squirrel Posts To Make Your Day

Some folks hate squirrels. Yeah. They consider them pests, much like opossums or moles. They call them “big rats with fluffy tails.” Sure, they might steal a few seeds from the bird feeder or chew a few wires, but these animals definitely should get more love.

Squirrels are extremely intelligent. For example, they are known to put on elaborate bogus food burying displays to deceive onlookers, and the fake burials trick thieves — such as other squirrels or birds — into thinking that they have stored their food stock there. But they’re also really adorable. But it doesn’t matter whether they’re having a snack or simply running up and down a tree, squirrels make everything they do look cute and silly too.

Bored Panda put together some of the best squirrel posts on the Internet to help you to appreciate these furry forest ambassadors, so scroll down, enjoy the pics, and upvote your faves.

#6 I Noticed There Were A Few Squirrels In A Tree And They Were Going Crazy

After I climbed about 20 feet up a tree I noticed that they weren’t fighting. They were stuck. THEY WERE ATTACHED AT THE TAIL. So I kept climbing and got these little guys into my bucket. I brought them back to the ground to try to figure out what I was going to do.

It may be hard to tell, but there are three squirrels buried in there. It seems that they made a nest out of insulation and dryer lint in a pine tree, and the sap kind of glued it to them, and them to each other.

I started pulling some of the insulation off, but it was a slow process because the sap from the tree was so thick it was pulling the hair from their little tails.

Believe it or not, they were really calm throughout the whole process. I used some warm water and scissors to help get the majority of the sap loose and the insulation off. The last squirrel was a total bro and let me take a few pictures with him.

#9 Little Thumbelina Is An Eastern Grey Squirrel, Who Was Born On A Frigid March Morning

Her Momma’s nest was destroyed due to nearby construction, and in a desperate attempt to keep her family safe, she crawled into a 10th story window and gave birth two tiny babies on a stranger’s bed, while he was away at work. When the apartment owner arrived home, he was surprised to find two tiny pink babies resting under his pillow, amongst some dried pine needs and branches .

Although we tried for hours to reunite the babies with their Mom, she refused to take them back out into the wild with her. After some time, Mom decided she could no longer return, and the two little sisters were adopted by local wildlife rehabbers . Although, sadly one sister passed just a few hours later, tiny pink Thumbelina got a second chance to begin her new little life.
