17 and counting!

OK...we have new additions to the 5 older boys, the 5 middle kids (all out of quarantine now) and Kinky the tiny baby. Got a call from the animal control officer in Salisbury. A mom was trapped and the &$^)* homeowner decided to shoot it with a shotgun. The week old babies were spared that fate and are now safely snuggled in here.....4 baby boys!
Got another call from the Attleboro's tree was cut down and she had 5 babies in there. Karen did a great job attempting to reunite mom and kids. Mom came back for 3 that night and Karen took in the remaining 2 during the days keeping them warm, re hydrated and fed while attempting a couple more nights at reuniting to no avail. We finally decided after to many nights without success to take them in permanently .So she brought them to me in great shape thanks to the care she gave them while they were with her. Nice job Karen! Two little girls about 2 weeks very tiny compared to the other, but both are doing great. Welcome Pippin and Merry to the gang!
All the new kids are still in quarantine so no pics's too much of a pain in the butt to worry about contamination and disinfecting it between groups! But soon!
The older boys LL, Bruce, Vin, Gerry, and The Rock are starting to eat soaked dog chow already making feeding time a little easier with them and all the rest are taking their bottles and eating great.
The 6 squirrels are down to one formula feeding a day and eating solid foods now so it won't be long before they move outside to the release pen either!
The rest of the gang is slammed with baby squirrels and other little critters. Here is one of Laurie's little charges.....a baby possum getting it's tube feeding....
Another mom has taken up residence outside my front door....thanks to this little robin the back door is what we use these days for a while!

OK...quick update over....time to start another round of feedings!


  1. Oooooh,the little baby possum is so cute. I wish I could make my animals as cute as they really are, but at least I will always be inspired to do better.

  2. Oh but they are as cute as the real thing!!! The little possie you did with the turtle....just like the real thing...and I can't say enough about the coonies!! If I wasn't spending all my money on formula and supplies my house would be filled with you and Robin's precious creations!!!
