Watch the adorable footage as this ignorant squirrel struggles to climb on a slippery bird feeder and somehow manages to trick the slinky in order to get to the treat. Reportedly, adding a slinky to a birdfeeder stops pesky squirrels from eating all the birdseed. However, given these critters are very persistent, the slinky is quickly defeated and it is the squirrel that claims victory in the end!

The hungry squirrel desperately tries to get to the feeder, but fails the first time because the slinky really got in her way! However, the tenacious squirrel doesn’t allow life to knock it down, and persistently tries to climb its way out to the feeder! After gathering its strength, the critter makes another jump and passes with flying colors! Amazing!

Anything is possible with a little bit of practice. When you fail, you just need to try and try again, and again until you achieve your goal. Take this squirrel for instance. Squirrels will do just about anything they can to get to some yummy food, even if that means surmounting slippery obstacles that get in their way!
