Why can’t Tippy the Fainting Squirrel stay awake?

Ladies and gentlemen, the first recorded case of squirrel-colepsy.  Or maybe it’s rodentglycemia? Either way, the internet can’t decide, and meanwhile this foraging black squirrel just can’t keep conscious.

Dubbed “Tippy the Fainting Squirrel,” this little guy’s adorable, though undoubtedly inconvenient, neurological disorder has captured the hearts and minds of internet users everywhere. I mean, just look at him: Gather some nuts, take a nap, gather some nuts, take a nap. It’s like the entire human experience rolled up into a blazingly cute, one-minute video.

Or maybe he’s just been taking some advice from area possums.
