The released squirrels living it up!

Just a little update on the squirrels. They are definitely enjoying the free life! It's fun to go out to the shed to feed the NCIS crew and be surrounded by lots of playful squirrels running amok among the trees and hanging nearby waiting for me to throw them a nut or treat. They are still hanging close by, using the release cage sometimes, but eventually they will melt into the woods and set up their own homes....making room for the next batch of squirrels due in the summer!

Thorny and Thistle are getting sicker as I expected they would. It doesn't look very good....
The NCIS crew is eating puppy chow well now so it won't be long before they are totally weaned. The gang that was with Phil....Michelle, Kinky, Pip, Merry, Tashmoo, Katama, Chappy and Squibby ....are all doing great! No signs of illness or problems like Phil. My guess is it will be about a week before the necropsy results are I'm holding my breath!!
JoAnn is holding on to Little Boy (LB) the baby that was not reunited with the box until we clear this whole mess up...and there are 2 other singles out there being cared for by other rehabbers with no release sites available that will come here eventually also...again all on hold right now!

  1. Finally caught up with all the readings. I didn't realize you were facing two other losses this past couple of days besides

    Tosser. I'm so sorry to hear your losses.

    I hope all the little ones will be fine.

    R.I.P. Stripe, Growler, Stormy, Rocco, Phil, Bramble, and the unnamed babies.
