Autumn is here....
Hello rescue fans. Autumn is here. A time for great joy and great sadness as its time to say good bye soon to my wildlife. Our 3 fox squirrels in Geneseo (The Unsinkable Molly Brown and her brother Daryl and her other broter Daryl) are in their release cage and soon will be running free gathering nuts. Stumpy is free too, he's a 1/2 tailed fox squirrel. Bumpy a car striked grey squirrel now lives in his outside pen. I counted 11 baby greys living in my squirrel house just on the edge of my yard. I am so excited, so I built a feeder and attached it to the tree. KatieByrd the fox squirrel from a rescue in Walnut is doing great and so rowdy (eyes are open and she's ready to explore). Autumn babies rarely survive, but not this girl. She'll go free in the spring, lucky squirrel. The coonie troop is ready to go too. Here's a video from last week with their fishing lesson. Too funny. This Friday Buddy, Jake & George (my huge fat enormous boyw) will head into a local timber. The following week we'll say good by to Bubbles and Lucy. Elwood has a bad ear infection, so we'll have to see with that boy, and out little Gracie will be around as we get her paperwork in order. Her blindness is just slows her down - nothing more - she's a real sweetie.
Can it be September already?
Hello 2nd Hand Fans. Once again - where did the time go? August saw some great growth in the coonie troop - not long now for us to all sing "Born Free" I got in an injured fox squirrel in from Dr. Dave - he is doing great - I call him Stumpy as he only has half a tail! I want to give a thank you to my friends at the Gypsy Moth Conference that stopped by to see my little rescue - it was a joy to show them around after all these years. Gracie - the blind coonie was a great host too. This week we got in a new baby Fox Squirrel that fell from a tree. It was touch and go for the 1st few days, but I'm happy to report she is well and is now called Katie-Byrd after my neice who was here all last week being the super volunteer. Now here are my latest YouTube clips.
