~*Disclaimer*~ Don't hate me! =D
I know I know you are not supposed to feed wildlife, but this squirrel was just so damn cute! We were BBQing, and out of no where here is Mr. Twirly the squirrel just standing there staring at us. I could have reached out and touched him with my hand.
~*That's how close he was.*~
I think he was so friendly due to people feeding him. He only had his right eye, probably due to some hawk trying to jack the food out of his hand, but had the best personality a squirrel could have. Not that I know many squirrels. I mean he wasn’t jumping off of trees and taking out people’s jugulars just so he could hijack their food.
So I notice him standing there, looking at me with those sad squirrel eyes. I go and throw him a piece of bread. He comes over quickly and snatches it up and just stands there and eats it, with the biggest smile ever upon his face.
~*Just look at that smile!*~
We throw a few more pieces at him thinking that he would stock pile the pieces in his den up in the tree. Not the case, he sat and ate ever piece that we threw at him. We only gave him one side of a hot dog bun.
~*Nom Nom Nom*~
Before we left we gave him the other half, which he took out of my hand, and ran up the tree never to be seen again. Hopefully he stock piled that piece for it was Autumn and Winter was to be coming right around the corner.
We go back and visit the lake, but we haven’t seen Mr. Twirly. Hopefully he was either off playing or moved to a different spot.
