Hi friends and followers! I'm thrilled to announce that it is Squirrel's three (3!) year webcomic anniversary this weekend! What started three years ago as a lark has turned into... A three year old lark!

If you're reading this, I thank you for your patronage, and hope you've enjoyed the last three years of squirrelly silliness as much as I have. I may be posting less frequently, but with more squirrel love. I hope you'll stick around for Squirrel's and the gang's further adventures.

To quote Jesus Christ Superstar, "it's been three years, feels like thirty..."

Posting changes

Hi friends! 

If you're reading this, then thank you for coming to my webcomic blog, Diary of a Squirrel.

If you're a regular reader, you probably know that I've been religiously posting comics here thrice weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for over a year, and before that, daily on weekdays.

Well, as we approach our third anniversary of these squirrelly comics, I find it more difficult to produce such HIGH QUALITY material at this rate. I am excited to report that Squirrel and the gang have been given a couple of EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES in the coming year, and that means that I will be busier than usual.

So continue to watch this space if you enjoy following this webcomic, but except for special BONUS weeks, I will only regularly post twice weekly now. Probably Mondays and Fridays, so you can start and end your weeks with a little squirrelly humour.

Thank you for understanding, and as always, thank you for your patronage!

Cartoon Caption Contest - bonus!

Yes friends, today is a bonus Cartoon Caption Contest opportunity! Whether you have been regularly contributing brilliant and dazzling captions throughout the week, or sporadically, or serially, or even once - I thank you all!

Here is a last cartoon awaiting caption action. Next week we return to our regular squirrel programming.

Cartoon Caption Contest - Part 5

Here we go with another cartoon awaiting YOUR brilliant captions! I'm still on holiday, and although I pre-drew these cartoons for the week, I need a break from coming up with witty squirrel repartee. That's where YOU come in, because these cartoons ain't gonna caption themselves.

It's just like The New Yorker's famous Cartoon Caption Contest, except waaaayyyyyy better, because everyone's a winner!

Thanks for those of you who sent me your hilarious, ridiculous, and sometimes non sequitur captions this week, via this blog comment section, via the Twitter, the Instagram, or email. You have all amused me on my holiday to no end.

Cartoon Caption Contest - Part 4

It's already Day 4 of the Diary of a Squirrel Cartoon Caption Contest - just like the one in The New Yorker, but way better, because everyone's a winner!

I know it looks bleak on this blog, with no submissions since Day 1 of the Contest, but there have been lots of fantastic entries on the Twitter (@diarysquirrel) and the Instagram (@diaryofasquirrel). I just don't have the time and energy to print them all here - I am on holiday, after all (remember, that was the whole point of this exercise, to give me some time off).

So please help a vacationing squirrel out and give these characters some more words! Remember, the everyone's a winner, except the losers who don't participate (and I mean that in the nicest way).

Cartoon Caption Contest - Part 3

Here we go again with another silent cartoon, waiting for YOUR brilliant captions!

I'm on holidays and need a break from making constant witty squirrel repartee, so please help out, friends.

I'm seeing a lot of great captions on Instagram (@diaryofasquirrel) and Twitter (@diarysquirrel). You can also privately email me captions at, but then you will only have my audience, and not the world wide fame of a public post.

So send in your captions, be they clever, silly, non sequitur, or as one friend on Instagram has chosen, Trump tweets. Everyone's a winner!

Cartoon Caption Contest - Part 2

Day 1 of the contest was great! So many winners here at the blog, on the Instagram (@diaryofasquirrel) and at the Twitter (@diarysquirrel). 

Here we go again with a second instalment. Make me proud!
