Of all the important global holidays and observances–both political and religious–today is a biggie.  In Squirrelology, it is THE biggie.  Happy National Squirrel Appreciation day folks!  Keep it furry.

Domestic house cats and humans have an amazingly interesting shared evolutionary history.  They are super interesting critters.  But they also cause ecological havoc.  Check out this truly unfortunate video involving squirrels, people and cats. To truly understand the science behind how cats affect ecosystems check out Peter Marra’s (director of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center) amazing book, Cat Wars The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer.
