Mama Squirrel

I took these yesterday....and I put a couple others on my other blog, Time Stand Still. I was wanting her to flip her tail up over her back till you could see how much is missing but she never once flipped it up.
She is never on any schedule in coming. Though I think now that it is colder, I do see her more. There was one time earlier in the summer when I was just sure she had gotten killed. There were 3 or 4 weeks in a row that she didn't show up at all. She is a little piggy right now, and just eats and eats and eats. I suppose she is trying to build a layer of fat.

She is a sweetie, a little extra insulation for the winter months is good for her.

Reading the post below about comments moderation. I was having a little problem with spammers as well. I moderate everything older than one day and so far so good.

She doesn't appear to be afraid of you or your camera. Too hungry, maybe.

How cute and I love that you can feed her. I have one that eats constantly, too. Must be the cold.

Oh, she is precious!!!
Many years ago, my son found 4 babies on the ground and brought them home to me. Not knowing what to do, I hand-fed squirrels for about 6 weeks. Without getting into the particulars, it is not just feeding that yo have to do to keep them alive!! We released them and of course my son was missing them horribly, so we would go back to try to see them. for the first week or so, 2 of them would come right to us and jump in our laps. Then of course one day they did not come. It was quite an experience, and one I am glad I had.
