The Many Ways To Have Fun With Squirrels and Chipmunks Too!
There’s many squirrel haters out there. Yes I know squirrels raid the bird feeders. But I feel squirrels and chipmunks are the most misunderstood creatures. They just want to eat like everyone else. So I developed FunWithSquirrels.com to show people that squirrels are fun cute creatures. And I will tell you how to solve the squirrels and bird feeders problem.
So here’s why squirrels are good:
- They entertain pets and people
- They can help those with anxiety
- They are funny to watch
- Squirrels can be trained to used their own feeders
- Watching squirrels can teach kids about nature
- Their feeders make great gifts
FunWithSquirrels.com is a sister site of GoGreenAndHealthy.com. We have many great products to help you learn about squirrels. Some products are quite funny like the Trump Squirrel Feeder. The Indoor Feeder brings squirrels and birds right into your living room. There’s plenty of other feeders including some feeders made from recycled materials. I teach you how to designate feeders for squirrels and birds. Certain types of slinkies helped me prevent squirrels from getting to the bird feeder. I keep them busy with other great squirrel feeders. So just browse this site and learn how I did this.
My Past With Squirrels
While I did not hate squirrels I truly did not like them raiding my bird feeders. So I was not a fan until one red squirrel changed that. I set up a green bird feeder. Then shortly after a red squirrel was chewing the top off! I ran outside and yelled at him. He wasn’t afraid of me at all. He came right back for another chewing. While I was mad I was also amazed at what this little red squirrel could do. He had a bold personality. I named him Stinky. I gave him his own feeder…the one he destroyed the top of. My goal was to get another feeder for the birds and keep him away from that one. And I succeeded. I now have 6 feeders including one for birds only. The rest they share.
Tiny PU The Cute Chipmunk
I was amazed at how close Tiny PU would come near me in my chair and Sweetie my Chihuahua. I can remember an afternoon where I was feeling a bit depressed over a bad morning. Tiny PU sat 2 feet from me on the deck railing. She (I think she was a female chipmunk…could be wrong) just stayed there for 15 minutes. I felt a bit better after this.
Big Stinky The Gray Squirrel
Big Stinky seems shy and sweet. He’s still a regular visitor to the window bird feed despite winter. And he doesn’t mind Sweetie barking at him only 1 foot away. One day I wanted to see if he’d take a peanut from my hand. He came pretty close but backed off. Maybe over time…
Stinky The Cutest Red Squirrel
Stinky is the one who ate my bird feeder. In the warmer months he’s more active but I have seen him out in the winter. One winter day Sweetie was barking at some thing all morning. I found what in the afternoon. I opened the door to my shed and there was Stinky on top of a box. We scared each other. Over the summer he’d sometimes bring his little girlfriend. She would be the one to get past the squirrel baffler. Stinky could not but she could. So squirrel bafflers don’t always work.
