Friendly Park Squirrels
You may notice that this first squirrel has such a kind and inviting look on his face. Whenever the squirrels would see me come close they would stand up on their hind legs and put on their friendliest faces, hoping I would give them a treat.
Unfortunately, I don't carry squirrel treats with me. I'm not even sure what a squirrel treat might be. I think they're something like Scooby Snacks, but I'm not sure about that. Maybe I could invent them. I wonder how much money a person could make selling Squirrel Treats. Would the big supermarket chains want to sell them? No, I didn't think so either.
This shows how confident these squirrels are around humans. There are people everywhere in this park, but the squirrels mostly don't run from them at all, or even care. These squirrels seem as tame as cats. Of course, no cat is truly tame, and neither are these squirrels. Cats look at us as friends, not owners. These squirrels are not quite even to that point.
There you are. I hope you enjoyed these squirrels. And I hope I get to go back to that place one day.
