What comes to mind when you see a squirrel? Some of us may think of the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon where a tiny flying squirrel and an endearing moose fight the villains, Boris and Natasha.
Others will think of the cute bushy-tailed squirrels that visit their yards. Still others will grimace because the squirrels are the villains that steal treats from the bird feeder in their yard. The bird lover versus squirrel lover can both rest assured that The Pet Supply Company has exactly what both sides of this war require to keep the peace.
It is simple to order squirrel feed online. The Pet Supply Company offers a wide variety of healthy choices to keep your furry visitors happy and content. Do you ever picture a squirrel driving a tractor? Well, now you will, because we carry a very special tractor that is designed to hold a nice big corncob for your wild squirrels to devour. (While they dream of planting more corn I guess.)
Some important points about feeding wild squirrels are:
- Never hand feed a squirrel, no matter how tame it appears.
- Do not give them junk food. They will eat just about anything and people food is not designed for their digestive system.
- A steady diet of sunflower seeds is not good for them. They need variety, so consider some vegetables like broccoli or kale.
- They love most nuts; giving them the native nut is a great treat.
- Surprisingly, squirrels also love to gnaw on animal bones. The calcium is good for them.
- Corn on the cob is a favorite and very entertaining to watch.
- Providing your wild squirrels with water is also a good idea.
When someone seems to be extra jumpy, nervous or unpredictable, they may be called “squirrely”. But they really are delightful creatures that often warn birds of impending danger from a larger predator.
Even Prince Charles spoke up for the tiny animal this last week! He visited the Glendelvine Squirrel Sanctuary in Scotland. There appears to be a vicious turf war between the local Red Squirrel population and the Grey Squirrel. The Grey Squirrel has eliminated nearly 95% of the Red Squirrels and this sanctuary is working to correct that and bring peace to the squirrel world. If Prince Charles thinks they are important than why not order some cute squirrel feeders and join the cause! You will find everything you need right here at The Pet Supply Company.
