Happy Easter everyone!

A lucky Easter for 3 new little squirrels brought in a couple days ago! Thanks to a very observant young man who brought their plight to the attention of his mother, 3 very hungry and cold young babies now have full bellies and are warm and cozy snuggled in their soft furs thanks to the coats for cubs program! 2 girls and a boy...all are doing well so far, however the boy is a little runty and not bouncing back as well as the girls, although he's eating great. Failure to thrive could be an issue, however I'm hoping he's just a late bloomer, and with some extra TLC will start to improve.....he's such a sweetheart! Peewee fits him....

Soon they will be able to join the rest of the gang.....Sweetie, the over seer of all feedings!
Luci....who I might add is not as evil anymore!

....and the yet to be named brother and sister that came in before these new 3. I may have to steal a name from JoAnn and call the little boy Wombat...with his dark nose he kind of reminds me of one!

It's a beautiful warm sunny Easter day out there....a pleasant surprise after a predicted rainy day! Enjoy the day everyone!


  1. Oh my! What little darlings! You are so creative with their names! You deserve the best!...:)JP

  2. they are so sweet. I'm glad to hear that Luci is feeling more friendly now too- although I suppose it is good if she still has a bit of attitude towards humans for when she is released. Be-lated Happy Easter wishes to you and all of your helpers!!!

  3. Thank you for helping me out. I was just lost with those poor babies. I am so glad I can follow on your blog. Matt was happy that you sent an update on the babies yesterday. He was worried about them. I can't wait to see what he brings home next to help.
