Sassy (Chipmunk)

contest winner icon

Sassy is a 3 year old Chipmunk. Sassy ended up as a baby on our deck 3 years ago, from then on, he has lived under a stump beside the deck but comes to sit with us each time we are out. He arrives back each spring.

How do we know it is the same pet chipmunk? He was almost taken away by a hawk the first year. We managed to scare the hawk enough to let Sassy go but not without taking off half of his left ear. That is how we know it is the same chipmunk.

Sassy will run up onto your lap, over your shoulders to head then down again, looking for his sunflower treats. Then he will sit on your lap letting you pet him.

He loves to sit on my laptop while I try to do my work around him! Sassy knows the sound of the front door opening so most times he is there before we get outside. Many times he will run into the entrance area, wait to see if we have his feed cup with us, then runs back outside to sit on one of our chairs just waiting!

What a lovely little story (except for the part about his ear!). I hope he's around for a long time.

Sassy is a perfect name! I so love how chipmunks fill up their little pouches to hide extra food away. When I was a little girl my elderly next door neighbors had two chipmunks and they were so adorable and sweet! Of course their names were Chip and Dale. ;-) LOL !

Precious! We have a chipmunk that lives under out shed and runs around, ect. I would love to be it's very best friend but so far it's not worked. Now I am going to Google everything and have him love and not be scared of me.

Thank you for sharing your story about your Sassy.

I can honestly say that it is probably the cutest pet story that I have probably ever read.

We have a chipmunk that visits all the time. He has several squirrel 'cousins' who come by daily as well. We've called him (or maybe her) Chippy. We have to watch the dog though. But she loves to sit at the patio door and watch Chippy dart around the yard picking up the peanuts we throw out there. She even runs to the door when we say Chippy is here.
