My Friend the Squirrel

The squirrel who used to come to eat the bread I put out had not come in a long time. This morning there he was on my porch railing munching away and having a great breakfast time. At first, he had tried munching on my aloe vera plant which sits on my table outside on the porch but soon realized the bread was more filling. Kittens inside, squirrel outside, and the proud kitten Papa was singing outside my door at 3 AM and had an early breakfast himself. Isn’t he just adorable?

I hope you don't attract more rodents to your home. The cartoon the chipmunks are adorable.

I don't think this one sings, he just comes to eat @sharon6345 I still watch the Chipmunk Movie.

Yes, if I tried to approach he'd be long gone in fact he stopped eating and held the bread and looked at me while I took the photo and when I stepped back he went right on eating @crossbones27

Maybe you could try giving him some nuts. Some peanuts perhaps.

He couldn't get that piece of bread in his mouth fast enough and had those puffy cheeks @andriaperry

I love squirrels. I have old heavy duty shelves in my back yard with bird seed (which the squirrels prefer) and squirrel food (which the birds like) on them.

I love squirrels and will often put food out for them too. But mostly in the winter time. They are fun to watch.

This one seems to choose the biggest pieces of bread and then tries to stuff it all into his face and he looks so funny doing it @porwest

The squirrel is really adorable. They are lovely and cute. Once I gave them some chips in the park and they enjoyed eating it.

@RasmaSandra I remember growing up we had a tree next to our house and squirrels would visit it. I never thought of them as my friend. That is nice that you feed him and good thing the kittens are inside or it would be a problem.
