My Very Own Pet Squirrel

Okay, I wish you could have seen my excited reaction when I opened the package that my blogging buddy, Chrissy, mailed me this past weekend.

You would have thought I had just discovered the secret to no more wrinkles without Botox.

I was utterly ecstatic!

Thank you, Chrissy...x

As most of you peeps already know, I ADORE squirrels.

Yeah, yeah…I know they can be devilish, pushy, somewhat disruptive, and very aggressive when it comes to stealing food from the birds, but hey…what does that tell you about me?

I’m devilish, pushy, somewhat disruptive, and aggressive when I’m HUNGRY too.

Anyway, all my life I’ve wanted TWO things.

1) A Barbie doll (which my blogging buddy, Peg, sent me in the mail earlier this year).

2) And a squirrel.

Now thanks to Peg and Chrissy…I have BOTH!

Allow me to introduce you to my new pet squirrel…Charles.



Isn’t he ADORABLE? And the cool thing about Charles is that he came with his own constant food supply. If you look real close, you can see that he’s eating one of my favorite foods…an APPLE!

Sunday we spent the day in the park; hanging out...


As soon as we got there, Charles tried to climb this tree. But alas, he couldn't...because he suddenly realized that his nails were made of cardboard.


We discovered a baby pumpkin on the ground, so Charles begged me to take a photo of him posing by it.


Charles and I bonding


All the other squirrels in the park ran away when they saw Charles. Personally, I think it was because his exceedingly handsome looks intimidated them.

Either that, or they were FREAKED seeing a grown man in the park taking photos of a cardboard cutout of a squirrel.


After a long day running around within nature, Charles was dang tired. Here he is just after I tucked him into bed at 7 PM. Isn't he cute?


Right after I snapped this photo, Charles BIT my lip.

Yup….isn't the little motherfucker CUTE????

  1. I hope he has a better piece of apple than the ones you got the other day!

    I love squirrels, too, in spite of the fact that they regularly raid my birdfeeders and even chewed a hole in the screen to get onto my porch. But they are so freaking cute!

    The photo of the real squirrels running away from Charles reminded me of the scene in the Velveteen Rabbit where the real rabbits wouldn't associate with the toy one.

    Hokey smokes, you guys are the new Rocky and Bullwinkle! Charles sure is one cute little mother f@cker and it's clear that he's in charge! But which one of you is nuttier!?! Have a great week, buddy, enjoy your new friend, and watch out for those teeth!

  4. LOVE your new friend xo! they are pretty darned adorable, I have to admit. Sometimes their squacking can get a little tiresome, and I constantly find them digging in my flowerbeds to plant the peanuts that we put in their tray of nuts. But overall, they make me smile too. Did I ever tell you about the time I saw a squirrel trying to eat a whole apple? Impressive I tell you! They are clever little rascals.

  5. Ron, you are soooo funny. Loved this entertaining post.

    Charles is cute and obviously respectful over other people's belongings. That's the right sort of squirrel to have as a pet. I might use this as a threat to the destructive lot I have. If I threaten them with turning them to stone or cardboard maybe they'll stop wrecking every garden item they can find.

    Have a happy week.

  6. Hello Secret Agent Woman~

    "I hope he has a better piece of apple than the ones you got the other day!"

    HA! Meeeeee too!

    "I love squirrels, too, in spite of the fact that they regularly raid my birdfeeders and even chewed a hole in the screen to get onto my porch. But they are so freaking cute!"

    So glad to hear you say that because many people (and it's understandable) do not care for squirrels because of that reason. But they're soooooooo cute, aren't they??

    "The photo of the real squirrels running away from Charles reminded me of the scene in the Velveteen Rabbit where the real rabbits wouldn't associate with the toy one."

    Hey you're right....it does! I love the Velveteen Rabbit!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Have a great Monday and week!

    And yes, he's a great little roommate because it just sits there quietly - HA!

    " Charles sure is one cute little mother f@cker and it's clear that he's in charge! But which one of you is nuttier!?!"

    Yup...he's DEFINITELY the one in charge and I'm definitely one who NUTTIER!

  9. Gooooooooood morning Valerie!

    Tee, hee....I got a bit carried with this post, you think?

    Thank you, isn't Charles adorable??? And yes, very respectful. But I gotta watch out for those sharp teeth of his because they're like RAZOR BLADES - HA!

    "I might use this as a threat to the destructive lot I have. If I threaten them with turning them to stone or cardboard maybe they'll stop wrecking every garden item they can find."

    Bwhahahahahahahaha! OMG...that's a GREAT idea!!!! I bet that would scare them enough to keep them out of your garden!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, dear lady. Happy Monday and week!

  10. Ron, what a wonderful suprise to get. Your own cardboard squirrel. Alas, life is good.
    It reminds me of the pet rat I got one year. His name was Randolph. Yes, we called him Randy the Rat. He had his own set of polo sweatshirts with the letter R emobroidered on the chest. He was a member of the exculsive Rodent Club and held the chair as top rat for six years. He lived in the pipes under my house and I could hear him and his friends entertain to the wee hours of the morning drinking Ratatinis and smoking a little Tiajuana Rat Pot.
    I fondly recall the days when Randy and I would frolic in the muck and mire and filth of the city. He would look so cute covered in slime and then we go to the showers to wash away our pleasure. He always wore that adorable pea green shower cap. Then he would slip in to his RR robe (randy rat).
    We would dine on decaying bits of old flesh and garbage.
    Ah, those where the days.
    Ron all kidding aside enjoy your new pal and keep us posted on how he does during the winter months.
    Keep his nuts dry.

  11. Hey there Diane~

    Aw...thank you. Isn't Charles adorable?

    "Sometimes their squacking can get a little tiresome, and I constantly find them digging in my flowerbeds to plant the peanuts that we put in their tray of nuts. But overall, they make me smile too."

    Yes, I know what you mean because I see them in the park doing the same thing. They're constantly digging holes and planting peanuts. I notice them doing that a lot right now because I guess they're storing them up for the cold winter months?!

    " Did I ever tell you about the time I saw a squirrel trying to eat a whole apple? Impressive I tell you!"

    No, but it's funny you mentioned that because one of my blogging friends (I can't remember who) shared a post with a photo of a squirrel holding a WHOLE apple and eating it. HILARIOUS!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, girl. Have a great week!

  21. Ron, you are one sick puppy and I love it! So creative you are. I would have never thought to take Charles out to a park and photograph him. Great shots!

    The one of him in bed is so cute.

    I really like squirrels myself. I know they can be aggressive and disruptive when it comes to eating and getting into things. Yet, I can't help but still enjoy them.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ha ha ha! He bit your lip! I hope you sent him to bed without any apple after that.

    I will never forget going to St James's Park (We went there when Princess Diana died, to show our respect) and the park was alive with squirrels. They were so tame that they sat on you and let you hand feed them. They would jump on you while you were walking along and sit on your handbag, waiting for food. It was amazing. I could have stayed all day there :)

    And you should see the CUT on my lip! RABIES!!!!

    Oh, Babs, that sounded AMAZING!!!! What a beautiful story!

    The park that I go to has squirrels similar to the ones you described. They have no fear of people and will often jump right up on the bench with me; stand on their back legs and ask for food. They are soooooooo CUTE!

  25. This is one of the few areas where we disagree, Ron. You look at squirrels and see cute little pets; I look at them and see rats with bushy tails (or a nice base for an autumn stew). I would venture to guess that a cardboard version would be much less irritating, though.

    Question: how many people gave you a wide berth in the park? :)

    "There is something a tad evil about your squirrel, Ron..........those pointy ears are HUGE!"

    HA! I know, he looks like a vampire squirrel!

    I think he's (pointy, hairy ears) part of the "Red Squirrel" species, even though he's not red. I read somewhere that they come in a variety of colors.

    "And now I'm wondering if there is a Philly blog out there with a story today about some dude in the park taking photos of his cardboard squirrel!!!"

    Forget about the other squirrels in the park how about the other people watching you take pictures of a cardboard squirrel, you most likely looked more normal than most of them anyways so forget I brought it up.

    Now remember you are my friend and now that you have a cardboard squirrel I don't want you to get too attached, especially when you try to give him a bath.

    Don't let folks give you a hard time either because being a squirrel lover and coming out of the closet about it so to say is a good thing, says the man looking at the squirrel statue on his desk.

    I am still laughing and am proud that you now have both of the items you were wanting.

  48. Squirrels are nuts! This one has rabbit ears. Maybe you could put him on top of your TV and see if the reception gets better? Hmmm.

    We have fox squirrels here. I'd never seen one before. They have a long body and a fox tail and a sort of black face. Cute but not too friendly. I heard one guy say they raid food from the golf carts. I think he was full of it. And I got up close to one in my golf cart. He just climbed half way up the tree and then said, in squirrel talk, "Whatdaya want, dummy?"

    I went on my way, quite surprised a squirrel would dare talk to a man with a bag full of golf clubs that way...but he may have divined that he could outrun this old guy!

    WOW...I've never seen a fox squirrel. I'm going to have to Google that later to see what they look like.

    Oh Ron, we need to get you a real pet or at least a stuffed one. I think you might have a problem with my sweet pointer, Dassel. He's been on a squirrel catching phase in our yard. Unfortunately, I have to toss the little bodies over the fence into the weeds. Ick! Doesn't seem to detour the squirrels from coming into the yard. They're not very smart.

    Bwhahahahahahha! OMG...how FUNNY!!!!!!!!

    Sometimes when I'm sitting in the park, I'll watch the dogs go bonkers over the squirrels; trying to chase them up a tree!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Angelia. Hope you're having an awesome week!

  59. Yeah, I just don't know what to say about this post.
    Well, other than, it was cool of Chrissy to send you such an appropriate gift. And you are FREAKIN' CRAZY! In a wonderfully sweet sort of way. ;)
    May you and Charles have many good times together. LOL

  61. Oh my gawd! I'm glad I went to the bathroom before I read your blog, Ron, or I would have pee running down my leg!

    Charles is freaken adorable!

    And it's quite alright that he's devilish, pushy, somewhat disruptive, and aggressive, because I'm like that, too! Even when I'm NOT hungry! lol!

    Those squirrels in the park are damn jealous that Charles is one handsome dude. Plus, he has YOU, spoiling him with apples and pumpkins. WHAT squirrel wouldn't be jealous? They have to hunt and beg for food. Imagine their embarrassment!

    Give Charles a hug from Auntie Pam.

    Have a fantabulous week, you and Charles!!

    ((YOU))

  62. Hellooooooooooo Pam!

    Aw...thank you, my friend.

    I'll be sure to tell Charles you think he's adorable. Although, he's getting a bit egotistical with all these comments about how CUTE he is. He keeps staring at himself in the mirror and saying, "Damn...I'm one HOT squirrel!"

    "And it's quite alright that he's devilish, pushy, somewhat disruptive, and aggressive, because I'm like that, too! Even when I'm NOT hungry! lol!"

    Meeeeeeeeeeeeee too!

    "Give Charles a hug from Auntie Pam."

    I SURE will!

    Thanks a bunch for stopping by, Pam. Hope you're having a super week!

    ((((((((( You )))))))))

    X,

    Ron & Charles

  64. Greetings Alissavdb~

    It was a gift giving to me by a friend who got it from a gift shop in a hospital.

    The only thing I can share with you is the company name on the sticker in back of the squirrel.

    It's called: creative co-op.

    Maybe you can Google it and find the company online.

    Hope this helps!
