Raising Squirrels

This is Leigh, the oldest Boyson, who lives on Sugar Mountain with his wife, Paige; Billie, the ginger girl cat; and Princess, the woofie. They have become foster parents to two motherless squirrels.

The neighbor lady, who takes in homeless critters, told them there was one of each; boy and girl. She gave Leigh and Paige some kitten milk to hand feed them. (This one has a hurt leg.) They are doing fine!!!

    Gosh, what a responsibility. What will happen when they need to be released back into the wild?

    They are so tiny! My uncle had a squirrel living in his house, but he wasn't invited in and nowhere as cute as these guys. I hope they do well.

    Those are the most precious babies I have ever seen! I didn't know squirrels started out looking so precious and then developed their devil instincts later! Maybe this human male can train them to lose that inner evil drive.
