The Nutty Squirrel Spat

I Wonder if Squirrels Think People are Nuts?

As I sat and pondered on my back porch this morning with the family pets, I heard a peculiar noise that I didn't recognize. I ignored it and went about my usual routine of tending to my dog and rabbit. It was their snack time and they were hungry.

The pestering sound grew louder and now there were two tones to it. One was a shrieking sound and one was more subdued, yet intense.

I thought it was probably two birds fighting over a worm. I continued to ignore the ruckus. Then the sound began to get closer.

You would think by this time I would have been a bit worried, since my neighborhood is very quiet at this time of the morning.

While I wasn't overly concerned, I was slightly curious.

That's when I heard a LOUDER shriek and my bunny Cupcake HOPPED into her cage and my dog Foxy JUMPED onto my lap. This is when I became a bit worried.

Mr. Squirrel is a bit annoyed at Sunshine
Mr. Squirrel is a bit annoyed at Sunshine

Mr Squirrel's Spat with Whom?

OK, now it's time for Sunshine P.I. to investigate the noise and protect her pets who were at her mercy. I wasn't that concerned since our porch is screened in.

I walked around the perimeter of the porch and noticed a squirrel who looked very irate.

Oh, it must be a lovers spat, how cute is that...so I thought.

Shriek...Chatter...Shriek....Chatter....Shriek.

Back and forth they went, bickering away at each other. One let out a shriek, while the other chattered.

The arguing got LOUDER and LOUDER and was beginning to irritate me. I could only see part of the squirrel since he was half on the screen and half on my roof.

I used mental telepathy towards the other squirrel who I couldn't see and politely requested she give him the extra acorn or whatever else Mr. Squirrel was demanding.

He obviously wasn't giving up, neither was she, so I thought.

I don't quite follow the chattering language or else I possibly could have been more helpful towards them. I strongly believe in not interfering with relationships. I sure wasn't going to break protocol and start now.

Shriek...Chatter...Shriek....Chatter....Shriek. My dog had enough she wanted to go indoors. Cupcake was using her very large bunny ears to block out the annoying squirrel spat.

It was then that Sunshine P.I. decided to act fast and act now. I walked over to the corner of the roof to spy and further investigate the lovers squirrel quarrel. It was at this moment that I couldn't believe what I was witnessing!

To my SHOCK and SURPRISE I could only find ONE squirrel!

I searched and searched and could not for the life of me find another squirrel! I watched in amazement as Mr. Squirrel shrieked, tilted his head to the side and chattered...this went on for a few more minutes.

OH MY, I have just witnessed my first EVER squirrel with a split personality!

The Nutty Squirrel Part 1 feasting on branches from my hedges

The Squirrel Spat Goes On

Yes, the squirrel was arguing with himself! What a NUT!

Hmmmm. I thought now would be a good time for Sunshine P.I. to call on Dr. Sunshine. Hopefully Dr. Sunshine can concoct a remedy for this obviously very confused, irritated squirrel.

Dr. Sunshine is the one who's always called upon with aches and pains within the family. She didn't require her trusty stethoscope for this patient since Dr. Sunshine doesn't do roofs.

The shrieking and chattering at this time was growing more intense. Dr. Sunshine analyzed the situation with the best of her knowledge.

She probed, scanned and tried to decipher the conversation. Dr. Sunshine is accustomed to tending to humans and her pets when needed, but not rodents.

With every ounce of her patience she calmly tried to assist, but the squirrel was persistent on being annoying and offering no explanation on how Sunshine, Sunshine P.I. or Dr. Sunshine could help.

The trio put their thinking caps on and wrestled with a few ideas but couldn't truly decide on what to do.

They all wanted to do the best thing possible for all involved. But patience was not one of Sunshine's best traits.

It was at this time that Sunshine said, "Heads up!" She turned on the garden hose and blasted the squirrel and his other personality off of the roof!

The nutty squirrel did give Sunshine quite a glare as he sprinted for dry land. Hopefully he will find the help he needs.

Go figure, arguing with yourself? Who does that? I have no idea. Neither does Sunshine P.I. or Dr. Sunshine.

Squirrels are very entertaining. Here Mr. Squirrel is chewing on a branch half his size.

Disclaimer:

To animal activists: Mr Squirrel is doing great, he was just spotted in the front yard hanging out with his gang. They were chattering quietly, most likely about the crazy women with the garden hose.

Well, it takes one to know one, I suggested he get some therapy at the nut house.

A very funny story.....do not try the hose if you are ever walking around New York City and you see someone arguing with themselves....just let the person/squirrel work through the issues. Nice photos of your pets as well...voted humorous and interesting.

When I was child I used to always feed the squirrels peanuts from my hand. One day I didn't have any peanuts but wanted to see if I could get a squirrel to come over to me anyways. I pretended to have a peanut. The squirrel came over to me and when he saw no peanut he bit me. Didn't break the skin but still....That was the last time I ever tried to feed a squirrel from my hand.

Enjoyed your story.

I know exactly what that noisy little squirrel was doing! He was putting on his best "psycho" act because a little birdie told him that you're the lady who writes for Hubpages. He wanted his 15 minutes of fame....and looks like he got it! Funny tale, Sunshine....but are you saying you never argue with yourself? Guess I better get some help too! voted up

OMG! OMG! now I know how YOU spend your time! How you considered YOU are split-not HIM??

This was JUST what I needed today!! I prepared, I didn't need to BRB!

I live in Calif, in the country, we have as many squirrels as people. More PEOPLE are split tho!

They are SO much fun! We had several fall from the nest (at once) could NOT find anyone to care for them. Our efforts failed ~ now they went over to Rainbow Bridge, visiting their ancestors! poor babies..... :(

I voted EVERY way but useful....cuz P.I. Turpin already knew about "split"

Thank you.....for the perfect sunshiny day!!!

SusieQ42 5 years ago

I love this story! We also have squirrels. When we fill the bird feeder, they help themselves...to bird seed. My husband quit feeding the birds because the squirrels eat it all. We even hung the bird feeder from a foot long wire, hoping the squirrels wouldn't be able to get to it, but, low and behold, they hang upside down from the tree branch and reach as far as they can. Then they dump it all on the ground. They are very naughty, and now I don't get to enjoy my beautiful cardinals and morning doves. Oh well...it's all in a day. lol

JUST remembered something!!!! In Oklahoma, my husband was standing under a tree when momma chipmunk ran down tree, across the street....car was coming ---

Right after that, a baby fell from his nest...he brought him home! She was SOOOOO much fun! We had to teach her the how-to-climb-a-tree! Two legged people, teaching a 4 legged baby ~ what a sight!!

We had her for 3 yrs, she decided she needed a 4 legged mate....off she went! What a joy!

(We had a baby racoon too)

Wild baby are lots of fun ~ and don't talk back with "that attitude!"

Hi Carrie! Thank you for sharing your story also! Who would have thought squirrels could have so many nutty tales to tell! :)

Hilarious, Sunshine625. I can't believe it was a single squirrel. I am so used to seeing pairs of them playfully chasing and chattering at each other. Thanks for sharing this squirrely experience. Voted up and funny.

DzyMsLizzy 5 years ago from Oakley, CA

Hahaha... Cute story!

Well, maybe the little guy had a bellyache from eating too many rich treats..and was alternately complaining and telling himself not to do that again. LOL

We have squirrels around here, usually in pairs, sometimes, a spat occurs when a third arrives...but one day, there was a third just kind of hanging on the fringes, like he wanted to be with the "in" pair sooooo bad...but not venturing near enough to get scolded...I felt sorry for him.

We have the "squirrel highway." They run along the power lines, and sometimes 2 meet, going opposite ways, Uh-oh--now what? They have it down to a science: one swings down underneath, hanging upside-down while the other runs over the top, and when that one has passed, the one who dropped under pops back up and continues on his way! Hilarious!

Sunshine,

That was so Darling--I just love all my wild animals, and I feed my wild squirrels peanuts, sunflower seeds and corn.

They are so fat---some may need to go to Squirrel Watchers.

When I hear my squirrels making a noise I check to see where KeeKee is--he likes to sleep at the bottom of their big oak trees--I think he likes noise.

Your little doggie and bunny rabbit are so cute---I know you enjoy them.

These little critters are SO smart. I had to stop feeding the birds because they always figure out a way to steal the bird seed. The hand upside down to get their little fingers into the opening. My dog, Baby, goes nuts when she sees a squirrel. One of these days maybe she will actually catch one.

Great Hub; made me giggle. I voted it UP, etc.

Not if I could only convince the squirrels to stop digging up my yard and garden. Wish I could convince them to go live in that pecan tree. That seems to be their favorite kind of nut judging by how many they drag back to my oak.
