Squirrel Appreciation Day

What are you doing to celebrate Squirrel Appreciation Day? Me I'm just being grateful that our squirrel has disappeared. Hope she's not causing too much devastation elsewhere!

  • Got to laugh! The ones in our garden drive me mad eating all the food for the groundfeeder birds! Very pretty to look at but still chase them off.
  • @ElfsborgAddick will be spending the day on squirrelpornhub with a box of Kleenex.
  • As Trump might tweet - “ Supporting Squirrel Appreciation Day, S.A.D!” :wink:
  • Screw that, the grey squirrel are an invasive species that saw off the red squirrel.
  • They are rats with good PR
  • I'm celebrating by playing with me nuts!!

    My username had been hacked, not of my doing.
  • Squirrel Appreciation Day. That's SAD.
  • Don't like grey squirrels - am I racist?

    Give them their own box away from the bird feeders. You can get the type where they have to lift the lid up, once they've mastered that they tend to keep away from the other feeders.

  • In our garden

    Depends...do you like red squirrels?
  • Where are the white squirrels and black squirrels when you need them?
  • In honor of this tremendous day my dog will continue to bark at them while not showing any real interest in approaching them because she knows when other animals are faster than her. Except for deer. She really, really wants to be friends with a deer.
  • I will be locating my air rifle and will do away with any squirrel taking part in the celebrations, especially after dark when they start letting fireworks off.
  • I like them, they are busy little bastards and very entertaining to watch

    I've got a bit of a soft spot for foxes at the moment, truth be told.

    Saw a slightly chubby one wandering around the garden the other morning, it had the healthiest coat I've ever seen to be honest. It genuinely looked like a little red panda pottering about.
  • I have two small dogs, George is now blind and not in a good way. Nelson is the laziest dog I’ve ever seen, but even he managed to get off his arse and kill a grey squirrel last year.
  • Where are the white squirrels and black squirrels when you need them?

    Since you asked, black squirrels are all over the Midwest USA (and Hertfordshire for some reason). And here's a white squirrel in Bedfordshire. (But they are all just grey squirrels really of course):

    I prefer red squirrels .....
  • my local invasive american tree rats don't know how relieved they are I missed S.A.D.
    pestilent songbird-chick eating shithouses
    All you apologists for these ambulant carcinomas do realise they are one of the major causes of the domestic songbird population falling off a cliff over the last generation? - not the only cause but a major blight.
    To say nothing of the extinction of our native red squirrel through most of its English range, partly from competition but mostly from its introduction of diseases to which our reds had no immunity.
    As it is still technically an invasive species, were you to find one in your loft or shed, say, you are forbidden from releasing it into the wild, tis a criminal offence. Keep it captive, if you like, but your alternatives are few indeed, especially if you're squeamish.
    I understand they're quite tasty, in a gamey sort of way, if carefully prepared for the pot, but I've never yet had the pleasure.
    While we're on the subject of pestilent, carnivorous, american, introduced species decimating our native fauna: crayfish. If you're anywhere near a water course blighted by these yankee monsters, get down there, hoik them out pronto blanch em and chow down, they're raving delicious - miniature freshwater lobster, nutritious and you'll be doing your bit for our rivers and streams too.
