9 Reasons You Should Appreciate Squirrels

Lots of folks do not like squirrels, thinking them to be similar to opossums or moles. My good friends even describe squirrels as “huge rats with fluffy tails.”

Sure, in some cases the furry animals might take seeds from the bird feeder in your yard. They may even rush out unexpectedly in front of your automobile.

However the more I have learned about squirrels, the more I have actually understood that they are seriously misconstrued, animals. Contrary to common belief, they are really incredibly smart. On top of that, they are extremely friendly and cute animals that should be enjoyed by all human beings.

Seriously, squirrels make whatever they do adorable and ridiculous, from consuming globs of almond butter off a fork to burying nuts in hoodies. Their total quirkiness and periodic hankering for mischief are exactly what makes them my favorite animal.
