While I was sitting here in front of the PC,I saw this going on outside my window..mama Squirrell and her 2 teenage kids.
Not great pics(through the screen)put a much needed smile on my face:lovestruck:
They were defleaing each other and waiting for their brekki from me..

Squirrells normally not very social animals,will nest together in the winter to stay warm,smart little critters:lovestruck:

So what do the Boys think of all this squirrely activity, chico? :cat: :cat: :cat: Do they get all ga-ga watching them through the window?

Sure are cute the way they're grooming each other.

I didn't know they stayed in family units for so long :cloud9:. I have never seen squirrels groom each other before, so cute.

Normally they do not groom each other,but this little family has stayed together,which is too unusual.
But I read most Squirrels will find one or more Squirrels to cuddle up with when it gets cold.

My cats are so used to them,they don't even flinch or try to catch them.
We've seen them outside almost side by side and they just look at each other:cat:
Bailey on the other hand,will chase them:dog:
