I bet right now you are wondering loving or hating what, since it can apply to many things in our world. I wish I could say that this blog is about some profound item that affects your life in a really big way, but I can’t. I want to talk about everyone’s neighbor, the squirrel (nonhuman-kind).
I happen to be one of those people who absolutely love squirrels. I know it is because I had a baby squirrel I raised on a bottle. Her name of Suzie. She was the joy of my 12-year old life. I would let her out of her box every day to climb the trees in the back yard. She would come to me when I called her, as if she were a dog, She was my beloved pet and I’m now 62 years old and my love for that squirrel has never left me.
I’ve had grown mean run backwards from Susie and me. I don’t know why they would think she was vicious. They just kept yelling “she’ll bite me.” It didn’t matter how much I told them she didn’t bite, they wouldn’t listen. Apparently they had caught a wild squirrel and it ate them up. I have heard they do hurt when they bite.
Now I love to watch the squirrels at play, scampering up and down the trees. I don’t mind sharing my birdseed with them either. Everyone has to eat you know. I have just moved so I don’t have my squirrel feeder up. Go to http://www.squirrels.org/ and find out anything you want to know about squirrels.
Now just to be fair, I know there are people who do not like squirrels, besides the men I chased around as a kid (It was funny). My best friend calls them big rats. Other people don’t like them because they are industrious and find their way into attics to stay warm and feast on the wiring. They are maligned for digging in the flower beds and eating the succulent bulbs.
I can’t understand why anyone would dislike them. They are so cute. I’ll ask again, do you love them or hate ’em.
Enjoy the video and I wonder what happened to her finger????
