Meet Jigger the Squirrel
Everybody, say "Hello" to Jigger the Squirrel.
Jigger is one of many who frequent the backyard daily but also one of the few who have been given a special name due to his stand out behavior, lack of fear to us or knows we aren't going to hurt him and his realization that we are the ones with a never-ending peanut supply.
He is quite the little character, always on the move and forever around our feet, on the table between us, circling me in the garden and occasionally known for jumping up at a pants pocket or onto a chest when peanuts be in a shirt or jacket pocket.
I am forgetting when we first met. Last year? The year before?
He has been given this name due to the little jig (dance) he does as he inches up to a hand holding a peanut.
While I always tell him he is a true pain in the a$$; I can't imagine a morning without him out there as I tend to the property.
