We thought our friend's hamster Frederick (he prefers the German Frederick, definitely NOT Fred or, gasp, "Freddy") would appreciate this gift, as he often complains that "hees business" is always on display, especially as he frolics in his wheel.
But when we presented the "Accoutrements Squirrel Underpants" to Frederick on his birthday, his disappointment was palpable. "Vell zen," he quipped crisply, as German hamsters so often do. "Ve are polite and must still appreciate da gesture, no?" Frederick clearly expected something with a bit more "oomph."
Upon our next visit, Frederick had cut the undergarments into a jock-strap of sorts, and he had affixed an Andrew Christian label to it. He had also dyed it a rich pink. He "vas ready fo da gym!"
It goes to show: hamsters are ever so resourceful, and gay German ones even more so.

Yeah, I know. These were meant for squirrels, but I didn't have the heart to tell my parrot, who accidentally opened the wrong package on Christmas and got so excited about his new underpants that he tried them on right away. So I gave the squirrel the bag of birdseed I had wrapped for the parrot, who proudly has been wearing the same pair of undies for over three weeks now. They fit quite well, and there's even room in the front pocket to store his peanuts.

Ok... it was a little difficult catching the squirrel and even more difficult putting these on my lil'furry friend. Once on though I felt he really liked them and I could sense his comfort. BTW they run a litle small, if you have a big squirrel I'd size up or go for the rabbit underpants.

I bought these for my friend Skippy. He loved them till he looked at the website and saw the disclaimer "Warning: Choking Hazard -- Small parts". He considers himself quite the squirrel-about-town and really resented the implication that he has small parts. I found the underpants hanging on my car antenna and he hasn't spoke to me since.

These are NOT made of squirrel! I know, I know, I should have read the product description more closely. Nevertheless, very disappointing.

Ha Ha - yes, I am talking to all you haters out there, bagging on what is a serious product that fills a serious need in our world. Oh yeah, so funny to make nut jokes. <eye roll> It is not a big joke to real Americans like me that have pet squirrels. I thank Buddha every single day that this company saw a serious issue and stepped up to rectify an injustice!
See, I was driving back from Vegas and I needed to stop and get directions to find the highway. (I also needed to pee, but that is a different story for my review of the car travel urinal product.) There was this very nice lady sitting out in front of her house, with cages of squirrels. She was very helpful in directing me to the highway, and offered to sell me one of her squirrels. Being the animal lover that I am, and a sucker for piercing black eyes, I immediately accepted. That is how Giovanni entered my life. The rest of the roadtrip was just pure magic, he and I laughed and talked and sang songs about hiding in Christmas trees and terrorizing talking dogs. He's my BFF now.
However, when we got home, I noticed some disturbing things:
1. Squirrels have a difficult time, um, wiping properly, and he left all kind of skid marks all over my new car seats.
2. Along with the skid marks, there were several wet spots as well, that frankly, I didn't want to discuss.
3. I was a little disturbed when, while singing "Acorns all over your face, tell me how does it taste...", he began swinging from the rearview mirror and, well, the package he was delivering was, um, larger and more in-your-face, than I was expecting.
4. He hates going commando in the jeans that I got him. I did manage to find him a squirrel jock strap for his kilt, but he says the jock wears funny with jeans. (since I am more of a Thong/Tube-top kinda guy, I am going to take his word for it)
On top of all of this, some of our guests were frankly uncomfortable seeing all of him when they came over. And there were serious accidents too...like the time he was sitting in the rocker on the porch, having his morning bagel, and his, um, boys got stuck in the slats on the seat. It was a nightmare and we had to call the fire department - on the plus side, one of the firemen did ask him out for drinks after, but I digress.
This product was a god-send. Not only does he look sexy in them - though I agree with the other reviewer, boxers would be nice, especially some red satin ones - they keep my furniture skid-mark free and now he can swing from the mirror without SWINGING from the mirror, if you know what I mean.
The only reason I gave them four stars is because the only colors are white or pink, and seriously, what guy squirrel is going to be caught in pink?? Black would be better, so he could wear them for multiple days without the poo stains being so obvious. Also, options like boxer briefs, boxers, and thong style might appeal to a wider consumer base.
Now, we just need to get him a speedo for summer time. He loves to float on his back in the pool, and honestly I just don't need to see him like that anymore. It is beginning to affect my sobriety.

Just like the item description says, I was sick and tired of seeing naked squirrels running to and fro in my front yard just "hanging out" for all the neighborhood to see. I mean, there are children around. Especially in this neighborhood. They skip school a lot and are always out there on the street with their little herbal business as they call it. Ah kids, such little entrepreneurs. Little Jimmy next door even brought me a sample of one of their new products. Some special mushrooms he had grown himself. Organic really is in demand these days. That was the only time the squirrels actually talked to me but I digress.
Anyway, one squirrel told me that day that he was tired of all the squirrel nakedness as well. That's when I bought the little squirrel underpants. It took me awhile to chase them down and even longer to get the underpants on em. They can be squirrely little bastards. I guess that is why they call em squirrels. But they just loved them! I watched them frolicking in their little undies for hours. Of course, that was after the trip to the ER and the morphine. They have good teeth. I will say that for them.
Long story short. Great product. Squirrel tested. Squirrel approved.

Finally my children can play outside in the yard without fear of seeing a squirrels bits and bobs. Because how many times have you been out in the yard barbecuing with friends only to find yourself completely embarrassed when the squirrels come to the yard without even their underwear on. And of course their excuse is always it's laundry day, or my last pair got snagged on a tree. Yeah, we've all heard these lines before. Well now I have a supply of underwear so that when the squirrels come round we can help them cover up. If only there was a brassier for the lady squirrels who need a little more support.
