Squirrels are in abundance around our house these days. I must admit I am partial to the white squirrels rather than the grey fox squirrels but their antics are always amusing. They have a determination when it comes to bird feeders and I have to admit I have left feeders empty more times than not lately due to them cleaning them out.
This type of squirrel is okay with me. Fake squirrels on a teapot do not frustrate me. These guys are pretty cute, aren’t they?
