JASMINE AND White Squirrel Wednesday

MOM AND I WERE SO SORRY TO READ OUR 
FRIEND JASMINE 
AT 
Marg's Pets crossed the bridge yesterday
Jasmine was a beautiful girl...she was a lucky girl to be loved and cared for by Ms. Marg.  Ms Marg takes it upon herself to care
for animals in her area who have been abandoned. Please click
here 
to visit Ms. Marg

JASMINE
Run free and we hope you find lots of squirrels to chase.
Hugs Madi and Mom

*************************************************
Yes another set of vacation pictures...and this will not be the last of them.  Crazy Mom took 280 pictures....BUT I must admit these are entertaining. Two days of their vacation were spent in Brevard, North Carolina, home of the White Squirrel.
I truly do not understand her excitement...after all I have a 
gorgeous white tummy....
Exhibit 1
Just sayin'

 Until Mom saw this shoppe name she had forgotten about the article she read them in "Our State" magazine several years ago.  When she saw the sign she thought to herself, 'I wish I could see them in person'.  


Lo and behold she did get several pictures, totally by accident.  She and Dad stopped to take a picture of this beautiful Episcopal Church, when all of a sudden a white squirrel ran across the porch.  To say Mom squealed would be an understatement.
Mom felt like this was a once in a lifetime photo opt. Mom was bragging about her pictures only to be told a sighting is not all that rare in Brevard.  MOL BUT mom said it was to her!!
Evidently this little critter has a gazillion relatives in Brevard.
They are not albino squirrels.  The white squirrels are called
Leucristic they have brown beady eyes just like the tree
rodents in our city.

Mom saw some regular tree rodents too but 
for some reason she thinks these 
little guys are adorable and quite frisky

  Mom pictures were taken from across a 4 land road.  This YouTube video gives you a better  close up of this adorable little squirrel.  It is long but the first few seconds are worth watching.


This post is dedicated to our very good friend Squirrel Queen at
Through Squirrel Eyes not only does she love squirrels she is dedicated volunteer at the feral cat spay and neuter clinic in her city.

  1. What adorable little white squirrels and how appropriate to dedicate to the Squirrel Queen! Of course, I have no need to gaze upon said squirrel after feasting my eyes upon your beautiful white bellah, Madi. So pretty! ((Hugs)) from your favorite mancat, Prancer Pie.

  2. It's still a SQUIRREL!!! I have found them to be nothing but aggivating. Maybe that is why Jamine liked chsing them. MOM wants me to say that she thinks the white swuirrel is very cool and she would have taken lots of photos too. I would rather look at your soft white belly anyday. Just sayin'.
    Blessings,
    Goose

    Madi, I hates to be da one to inform you dat your mom is wacko, kerazy...her done losted her marbles, Squirrels is NOT cute. Da only thing squirrels is good for is stew and kabobs.
    And I will not mention dat my mum thinks they is cute cuz dat would be totally embarrassin'.

  14. Good morning Madi & Mom,

    We are so sorry to hear about Jasmine, we are sending loving purrs to her family.

    Our mama is going gaga over those cute little white squirrels. She has never seen that branch of the family tree. She got a really good chuckle over the restaurant sign. We watched the first few minutes of the video but mama's got to go to work so we'll see the rest tonight. She says thanks for the shout out Madi.

    Miss Madi, you have the prettiest white tummy we have ever seen.

    Have a wonderful day,
    Cindi Lou & The Kitty Krew
    and the residents of the SQ kitten care unit! MOL!
    And Mama!

  15. Run Free and Fast Jasmine.

    OH Madi... your mom needs to schedule a therapy session with PUDDLES... I hear she has times available from 2:00 to 2:03. Squirrels are all BAD no matter WHAT color they are. EVIL is EVIL even when it is Brown Red or WHITE. How could she think that a white squirrel is worthy of a picture.. when she has your lovely White TUMMY to photograph?????????????????????

  16. Once Momma saw a totally BLACK squirrel. She took lots of pictures of it, but I don't know where any of them are. It was in the dark days B.C. (Before Casey). But I don't think the squirrel can hold a candle to your pretty tummy!

  17. Thanks so much for the Jasmine stuff. We appreciate it a lot. It is so great to have so much support.
    Those white squirrels are really something. That would be great fun to see them. And the reason why you didn't bring one home. Oh, guess Madi would have had a hissy fit at that idea. Have a great day.Thanks for all your wonderful support.

  21. White squirrels well I'll be. I have one black in my neighborhood. The other gray squirrels don't play with him, it is like he is an outcast.
    I thought of you Sunday I saw a license plate that was 4 RSQ. For Rescue I followed it right into Petsmart parking lot.
    Thanks for being a friend

  26. White squirrels!!!! I have never heard of such a thing. They are kind of cute, but don't tell Puddles I said so. In our old neighborhood in Chicago, there were black squirrels. No other neighborhood had them.

    Your pal,Pip

    P.S.: I was so sad to hear about Jasmine ...
