How adorable! It reminds me of those fat reddish squirrels in CO. I have a gray one with a white front that I call Mr Chubs. But now I actually think Mr Chubs is a mother.

A work affiliate of ours has a squirrel in her back yard who has taken up residence for years. She has named him Fred and it's Fred's yard. Looks much like this one.

I work at a university and we have lots of squirrels that live here. I was watching 1 eat the other day and another 1 ran over to see what the 1st one had then came and sat right in front of me and stared at me...it was asking me to give something to it too. I felt so bad since I hadn't given the 1st one anything and had nothing to give the 2nd one...so now I carry pecans in my purse to share...some of them will even take your offering right out of your hand...

We have several, as we have lots of woodlands behind us. Love to watch them.

love your chubby little friend. We like feeding and watching them run through the trees and wires.

They actually aren't fat... Squirrels can fluff out for warmth, just like birds. In the cold weather they always appear 'fat', because their fur is sticking straight out, for insulation.
