I was all set to write a post about the latest oppressive tactics employed by a so-called animal rights organization, when I learned of very important news that must take precedence:
Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day!
The above photo – taken in New York City’s Central Park during a 2004 vacation – is the only squirrel photo I could find in my collection. I must rectify this by taking more photos of squirrels immediately. They are one of my favorite animals.
Related fun fact: I went to high school in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA.
It’s good to be reminded that our fellow animals share the Earth with us. No matter what species they are or what they look like, all animals want to live.
