This is the house that my neighbor Scooter built for two young squirrels who had a rough start at life. About a month ago these two guys fell, one in the grass and the other four stories from the roof to the concrete drive. Mrs. Scooter immediately rescued them and her friend was able to nurse them back to health. They now live in the little squirrel house but have also taken residency high up in a tree to avoid the neighborhood cats who come running when Mrs. S. calls the squirrels for their milk. It also seems that the raccoons have discovered the comfort of this shelter with it’s purple towel provided for warmth.
Watch squirrels together. YEs, I am being silly but this squirrel was not fearful of me or my cat, Leon as we sat the living room window watching him.
I was working on the computer and kept hearing all this squirrel noise in the backyard. I thought it was two squirrels but turned out it was this guy just siting on the fence post enjoying a black walnut making all kinds of noise and Leon, listening intently! We watched him for 15 minutes.
