Squirrel Eating Peanut Butter From Inside the Jar

It's a squirrel's dream come true: Eating peanut butter while rolling around inside the jar.

The little guy loving life and eating peanut butter is kind of a pet to these folks. They say they use the term "pet" loosely because the squirrel hangs out in his backyard and comes whenever it suits him. But they certainly love him, and the squirrel loves them right back!

Doesn't he look like the happiest squirrel ever? Admit if, if there was a jar big enough, you might do it, too.

  2. Now that is the most heartwarming thing I've seen in a long time! The little hands holding the rim of the jar...it made my day!

  3. Little squirrelly hands holding on to the jar as it rolls and is licked!!! Reminds me how a squirrel once fell in love with my father. No, actually, it fell it love with my father's beard. According to him, anyhow!

  4. Nom, nom, nom! And he didn't even seem too grubby when he was finished. 

    My Mommeh put a dab of organic nut butter on the inside of Bert & Ernie's cage one time so she could see what a tiny gerbil tongue looks like while they licked it off!

  8. This is just too cute!  Obviously this little guy/girl is no stranger to these people because he's all over them.  And, why shouldn't he be?  He's gets lots of peanut butter.   Mmmmmm.....nom, nom!

    Yes its very cute and very small, a baby, they can become really quite tame and loose their fear of humans, ... unfortunately not my favourite creatures and I no longer encourage them or can even feed the birds in my garden. Plus I had two lovely trees chopped right back this year - Why? believe me they are not so cute or lovely when they decide to live in your roof space, they will chew through everything including your electric wiring - you are unlikely to know you have a problem till something serious happens - like all the power goes off!  All in all a very expensive problem, and very hard to get rid of them once they've moved in. I like to see squirrels in the woods, I wish people would not feed these wild creatures and urbanise them, encoraging them to breed out of control. Naturally these are shy wild animals that live in the woods and it should stay that way. In Britain we hardly have any red squirrels now (which are protected); its because the bigger stronger foreign grey squirrel has ousted them out. In britain the grey squirrel is regarded as vermin and if trapped must be euthanised, you can't just let them out in the woods, you'll get a big fine if caught. All in all squirrels are regarded as pests by a lot of people who have had the bad experience of squirrel damage, in my neighbour hood several houses have been infested with squirrels and their on slaught of damage; so we have to be vigilent now ... but I still see neighbours just 3 doors down feeding them - wait till they break and enter your roof space and chomp down on your water pipes  or destroy vital wood supports -it will be too late then for me to say " I told you so" So there is cute , and there is I am afraid to say " not so cute" standing on my side of the garden fence. If I see them in my garden I  have a panic attack, and I'm filled with dread and for boding immediately checking my roof for new signs of entry. Also, and very importantly a grown squirrel WILL attack a domestic dog  or cat, they can be extremely aggressive and their bites leave infection. My  poor cat had several bites on his head and neck last winter, (big fat abcess, very nasty indeed) I can't swear it was a squirrel because I did not see, but we dont have any fighting cats nearby; and a few days later a nearby  neighbour told me she had seen a quite big cat fighting that day with a squirrel the noise was so much it brought her out of the house! No not so cute either I am afraid, be wary of these wild creatures.

  10. Well, you are most certainly right, but I don't see the point in writing a tirade like this in a blog devoted to "cute". Plus, if you are going to write something like this, you should watch your spelling and grammar.
