What do animals do during heat waves?
Its common sense to keep your pets cool during heat waves, but what can we do for the squirrels! They looked pretty miserable during Chicago’s heat wave last week. But they also looked pretty funny. I took a picture of one because rarely can you ever get this close to a squirrel (except for the ones that have rabies, they seem to just love being around people). I think the phrase “dog days of summer” should be changed to “squirrel days of summer.”
No squirrels were harmed in the taking of this photograph. After I took it, I gave him an ice cream cone and a cold one and he seemed to liven up after that.
