Squirrel Appreciation Day is Four Days Away

Squirrel Shoes

My dear friend, fashion designer Adrienne Butikofer, sent me a photo of these squirrel shoes she found online.  With only four days to go until Squirrel Appreciation Day arrives, Adrienne is trying to get into the spirit of the event, although she had admitted that it’s difficult.  “Why doesn’t anyone appreciate raccoons as much as I do?” she wrote me.  “When is raccoon appreciation day?”

Well, Adrienne, International Raccoon Appreciation Day is October 1.  Until then I would appreciate it if you would shut your trap and stop trying to steal the spotlight away from my beloved squirrels.  And if you want raccoons to be the next big thing in fashion, I suggest that you devote an entire collection to them during Toronto Fashion Week.  There’s no reason that the guys from Greta Constantine should be the only things that remind me of vermin rooting through the trash.

  1. my raccoons eat your squirrels for breakfast.
    In my new neighbourhood, we have an OPPOSSUM (!!) coming to eat the scraps under our bird feeder. Now there’s an animal to inspire a collection.
