My mom would LOVE this, she's a huge squirrel person. I mean, her favorite super-heroine is Squirrel Girl (yes, that IS as stupid as it sounds). But, I love this sketch to, being able to relate with this issue and I can confirm this as true. Anyways, gtg, but I'm STILL diggin the art and the jokes. Here's to another 20 strips of Possum Tails!
I was obsessed with squirrels for a good 10 years of my life, mostly because of the pet flying squirrels my mom had. After one passed away outside of the breeding season, we weren't able to get any more squirrels until next spring, so we got a sugar glider instead (Rontu). Big mistake. If there had been baby flying squirrels available, I might be drawing Squirrel Tails instead. They're still one of my favorite animals, and at our house we wage a little bit of a friendly war with them. I can't remember what the score is, but they've totaled more than a few feeders. We've had one standing for over a year now - they're going to have to up their game.
Thanks for all the comments, I hugely appreciate it!
