Animals have always been a big part of our lives. In some cases, we may have traveled hundreds of miles in order to see animals and they often were part of our vacation plans in some way or another. Now that we are mostly living at home due to coronavirus “stay-at-home” orders, we may miss that part of our lives.
In reality, however, enjoying animals is really not much further away than your window. We may not have lions and tigers running around outside of our home (or maybe you do), but we do have some little animals that can be just as enjoyable. After all, if you’ve ever taken the time to watch squirrels running around, you realize that they can be extremely entertaining.
Perhaps that is why Rick Kalinowski got busy building something that was a little out of the ordinary. It was an absolutely adorable, tiny picnic table that he built for the squirrel in his backyard and attached it to his wooden fence. After pictures were posted of the squirrels enjoying a feast on the picnic table, it went viral.
Kalinowski received such a response to the post that he started to offer plans through his Etsy store. You can order an assembled table, a pattern, or a picnic table kit.
