I was out inspecting what remains of the garden the other day, and noticed there were still some fall raspberries hanging in there, despite the cold. I had just put out a fresh serving of peanuts at Squirrelington’s, so I thought they might like a little sweet treat as well.
They seemed intrigued at first, but then….
“Excuse me waiter…. is this some kind of trick?”
Clearly the peanuts were much preferred.
“Tell the cook that they can take those red things right off the menu!”
Even the blue jays weren’t interested and I thought for sure they would be. They take them right off the bush all the time.
It was only when every last peanut was gone that this little guy decided they might make a nice dessert

It’s funny what critters will and won’t eat. I throw food outside all the time and am surprised at what gets left behind.
Who knew that squirrels eat their protein first, snacks after!
I am surprised that the raspberries were a last resort for the diners. You are very generous to share your raspberries!
That is a surprise! I would have thought the raspberries would be the preferred food. You get some great photos of critters visiting Squirrelington’s.
Well, of course they had to eat the peanuts first. You can’t have dessert unless you finish your supper. #MomRules101
I thought they would eat anything! Love the scene . Its like we are watching an animal play
Kind of makes sense that the calorie dense food is preferred. Interesting!
PS the tiny picnic bench is adorable as ****
He forgot to clean up his area upon completion of his meal! lol Like cats-you just can’t figure out their preferences!
