I figured, with all the negative news lately, this nonsensical holiday was worth sharing. Today, forget all your worries and show these fuzzy little critters some affection. If you are one of those people unable to show affection to any living or non-living creature then here are 5 easy ways to show a squirrel that you care.

According to the NWF, Squirrel Appreciation Day was created by wildlife rehabilitator Christy Hargrove in 2001.

I’m not to sure why Hargrove chose to create this holiday, but, personally, I have never had a negative squirrel encounter, so I fall in the category of  a squirrel appreciator. When I was a kid I would get up every Saturday at 6 am to watch old Rocky & Bullwinkle reruns. I thought Rocky was the cutest little thing. How can you not love their beady little eyes and fluffy tails?

Okay, so maybe squirrels can be a little mischievous, but watching squirrel videos on YouTube is a guaranteed to make you smile. It is Squirrel Appreciation Day and the least you could do is show some appreciation. Even if a squirrel gnawed a whole in your wall you can’t deny the cuteness factor.


Something must be in the air or I am aging at a rapid pace. I have been sleeping almost 10 hours a day (mind you I work 8 hours a day, so my life is literally work & sleep) and even with that I can’t seem to do anything right and I still feel like a zombie. Maybe this is my body’s natural reaction to the grown-up life, but really, we shall never know.

In one of my recent zombified, lackluster states I turned to the one failsafe thing sure to put a smile on my face- googling cute cat pictures. What can I say? Other than how can watching something like Maru & the Giant Box NOT put a smile on your face (just look at that little man’s face!). Even my brother the sports fanatic, known for the time he ripped a phonebook in half after a disappointing Yankee’s loss, laughs everytime.

Needless to say, I was overly ecstatic when I found That Cute Site. It has video and photos of our cute furry friends with categories such as pugs, cats and hedgehogs there is something for everyone. For instance, I may have been sidetracked when writing this blog by the Two Adorable Rabbits in Paper Cups. It is about as exciting as the dramatic staring gopher, but the rhythmic motion of their tiny noses is mesmerizing.

Meanwhile, back at my Little Man House, my cat Butters is attempting to climb my back, which means I need to wrap this up before he

BUT, before I go I must leave you with this.
