Ground Squirrels Are Lovable

We have had ground squirrels around for years and over time, we made friends with them. In this video, you will meet Bugsy. He was a peanut hoarder for sure.

Each squirrel has their very own personality just like any other critter. Bugsy was also one who didn't seem to mind movement or the camera...some of the squirrels were skiddish.

sadly most of our lil squirrel friends are gone...a neighbor started feeding and keeping stray cats around and they have killed off our squirrels and bunnies. We do have a few squirrels coming back, but haven't been able to get rid of all the stray cats yet, so we will see.

Hope to have more videos and pics of these cuties again.

Oh my gosh! That is so cute! He is definitely a little peanut hoarder. Ok, so when he was turning the nuts over and over in his mouth as he was stuffing them in what was he doing?

We have loads of squirrels in our garden. I love them! The girls often feed them peanuts, which they bury all over the lawn! I love their playful nature, they are very good jumpers! A couple of years ago our neighbours cut down a 300year old oak tree in their front garden! I was devastated for the squirrels!

Kirst, when I saw this video I immediately thought of your girls and how much they would love this little guy.

Your neighbors cut down a 300 year old tree?! How sad!

Lany, I was not only sad but mad! What live-in a 300 year old healthy tree? Not just squirrels but many species of birds and insects as well as the beautiful spring bulbs that popped out every year brightening the base of the tree!

Why did they cut down a healthy tree? I would be mad too! They just changed and interrupted the eco system for lots of critters.
