Found this postcard over the weekend featuring one of Albrecht Dürer's masterworks  Two Squirrels, One Eating a Hazelnut from ~1512 or so.

While I don't necessarily condone the practice of keeping squirrels as pets I certainly can understand why Medieval and Renaissance-era people would feel inclined to do so.

And if you were gonna have squirrels as pets why not lavish them with collars of red silk and give them all the hazelnuts they'd ever want?

Rocket stopped by for lunch but this time he stayed and cleaned me out of sun flower seeds. Hope he can't figure out how to open the window.

The Squirrel Grand Nutional
 
Enjoy a hawk’s-eye view of the squirrel Grand Nutional Steeplechase, which was run a few days ago at Faintree racecourse. A silly and enjoyable video to start your first "Caturday" of the new year! Please do share with all your friends and family.

Squirrel Speak -  there is a lot going on physiologically to make these unusual mammalian sounds.

I've seen a lot of squirrels without fear, so this makes total sense.

Ha, finally. I have been doing some #squirrel baiting in hopes of getting some up close video. It's been about a week since I set out some sun flower seeds and whole peanuts and I finally got this critter today. Now I have to clean the squirrel stuff off the window, but hey.

Rather than use the year in photos and slideshows as my parting shot, here I would like to share my favorite moment of the year. A visit from a nosy   squirrel, with some notes. Happy New Year. If you can't find what you are looking for, may they find you!
