  1. Love this!!

    I have a very soft spot for squirrels because “my” very first squirrel was Myron (because he looked like one!) but eventually found that Myron was female – oopsy – didn’t know anything about squirrel anatomy initially but learned over the years.

    Well, Myron (yeah I kept her name) eventually sat on my lap and allowed me to kiss her on top of her head. This was close to 20 years ago, and I’ve had many, many generations of squirrels come by ever since.

    Another one of note was Fat Girl, who let me pet her and put doll-sized hats on her. Funny thing was, people walking by my driveway would see me petting her and want to do the same. Jeeze, people!! Have some common sense, you can’t just go up to ANY undomesticated animal and think it’s a pettable stuffed toy!

    Currently, Cutie Girl comes by and sits on the seed pile chomping away while I talk to her, close enough where I can reach out and touch her – but I don’t, because I kinda/sorta want her to be afraid of humans.

    1. I love squirrels. Have fed many from my hand over the years. In our last apartment we had little squirrel feeders for the winter months. I miss them. They were little red ones with large ear tufts.

      1. Winola & Janet,
