Nearly Wordless Wednesday





***
Our Doodle of the Day:

Today's doodle in remembrance of my sweet Rosie is all about showcasing how my bed was, in fact, her bed. Indeed, Rosie slept on my bed nearly every single night. I just slept wherever I could fit.

Our Tip of the Day:

Today's wildlife tips is about those bright-eyed, bushy-tailed rodents we so often seen running about. That is, squirrels. As we've all certainly witnessed, squirrels are not all that particular when it comes to what they'll put in their mouths. They are pretty resilient, but that doesn't mean we should throw any and every food out there for them. For example, bread and starchy foods are not the best diet choice for squirrels, especially when moldy. Even peanuts and corn are not all that ideal for them, again, especially when moldy. Of course, human junk food is also not a great option.

So, if you want to throw some snacks out for the squirrels, such as to enhance that Squirrel TV, try to offer them some foods that are a bit healthier for them. What, then, are some potential foods you can offer squirrels as healthy snacks? Tree nuts are one option, such as walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and hickory nuts. Vegetables can also be just as healthy for squirrels as they are for us, and some good options for squirrels include carrots, broccoli, and zucchini. Another option is fruit, such as apple, strawberries, and grapes. So, while squirrels may not be picky when it comes to food, if you wish to offer them some choices, there are some healthy ones you can try. Then, you and your furbabies can enjoy a healthy episode of Squirrel TV!

Beautiful nose Astrid. I love the drawing of Angel Rosie on your bed. I did not know squirrels would eat fruit and veggies. I wouldn't dare feed them though, my hubby doesn't like them around.

We love that doodle of Angel Rosie on your bed. :)
