Moving day, new babies & a visit with old babies.

Laurie and I spent the better part of today moving 16 of the babies to the release site in Littleton. We have spent the past week getting it ready. The boys with attitude and the NCIS kids with 6 of Laurie's gang are on their way to freedom soon. As soon as I find where I left the camera I'll get the pics posted! The move and mixing the 2 groups went REALLY well! Whew.
The second round of squirrel babies is in full swing. These 2 cuties are with me now. Both came in with upper respiratory problems but after a round of antibiotics they are doing great! Snarf is the boy and Snuffles is the girl....names are the result of their previous respiratory conditions...it just couldn't be helped! LOL


Got an early evening visit the other day too. I guess he didn't want to wait for dark and the rest of the crew! Early bird gets the worm.
Got anything good mom?
Oooooooo sardines!! How yummy!
Thanks mom! These are great!
The latest video I have been looking over from out there is crazy! Lots of activity with a couple of coyote and a fox.....all hanging out peacefully (and pretty cautiously I might add!) with the skunks out there! It's amazing....no one wants to mess with these guys! Can't say I blame them either.
How relaxed is that! You know, animals could teach us humans a lot I think!

  1. What about skunks Deanna? Can you tell them apart too? Do you know who your cute visitor is here?
    I'm definitely putting "skunk" on my "must make" list, LOL.

  2. I can actually tell some of them apart. 3 of the gang Lisa left here were short haired so this is one of hers. My gang were all long haired and basically all white backs. I think there is a mix of them out there since some stomp at the others like they don't know them, but they still tolerate each other.
