One afternoon I was sitting on bench in a beautiful park reading my book. A squirrel appeared from behind the bench and I suppose he smelled a snack I had made with dates and nuts. Then he started a little entertaining show…he jumped on my lap, poke his little nose into my bag while his feet were on my book, then he jumped on a neaby fence, then on top of my head and stood there for a couple of seconds…and back on my lap, my book and searching my bag. That went on for about 10 mins, the most joyful 10 mins ever! They are just adorable!
I didn’t know squirrels get that close to people. I’ve watched them getting close with caution before but then run away.
