    Totally reminds me of Winnie-the-Pooh stuck in Rabbit’s door.

    That is one “healthy” looking squirrel. I love those little guys!

    I wanna snuggle that squirrel! He looks so very snuggle-able.

    Just to reassure you squirrel fans – she or he isn’t stuck! She literally “hangs out” like this often during the day; apparently she finds it relaxing.
    I’m calling the squirrel “she” because I think she’s carrying baby squirrels, who will be born into a nice cozy owl box. Can’t wait to watch them grow up!

Sorry, comment time is over.
