Almost had a new brother!!

OMD I can't believe what I am hearing! Apparently I almost had a new baby brother! No one consulted with me on this!! The nerve! This is a picture of him!

That's right! A baby SQUIRREL!
The poor little guy fell from a nest, along with his brother (who did not survive the fall), while Mommy's palm trees were being trimmed! She frantically tried to save the other one, but he landed harder than this guy did....and he had some blood dripping out of his nose. Mommy cried like a baby of course, and had a burial for him in the backyard. But she was able to save this one and got him reunited with his mama!! My mommy was only giving it til dark....and if squirrel mama was a no show, he was moving in with us! BOL!
Oh the fun I would have had with him!

Hey Bruschi,
What a good momma you have! I would have loved to have a baby squirrel brother. I'm glad the little squirrel got reunited with his mother.

HI Bruschi,

Obviously you didn't pawticpate in Operation Whack A Squirrel. BOL

I have to admit the baby tree rats are kinda cute, but the adult ones are not!

I know we are not suppose to like squirrels... but I must admit that is pretty cute. I just wish they stayed looking like that forever.

Hi Bruschi,
Well thank goodness he got re-united with his mama. I do not like squirrels but human Granny has a soft heart for all animals. I guess it is o.k. I do love to chase them. Have a Barking Great week.
