Did you know that today is Squirrel Appreciation Day? Since 2001, January 21 has been the one day of the year that’s dedicated to giving back to one the all-time greats of the rodent family. Today, squirrels of both red and grey varieties can come together and bask in the warm glow of human appreciation — before scuttling back into the garden to steal all the food from your bird feeder.
Here are ten outstanding squirrels to remind you just why today is Squirrel Appreciation Day — and if you happen to see a squirrel at any point over the course of the 21st, let them know that you acknowledge their achievements.
