Squirrels are funny and playful, but always keep in mind that they are wild animals. Watch and enjoy them, always approach them slowly and carefully and never try to grab or pick one up. Many will scratch or bite when they feel scared or threatened. If you see one in trouble, try to protect it from predators without touching it and call your local animal control.

Tiny learns about gravity...

So here's what happened. I was doing my usual tree to tree search for grub and I spied some really tasty looking buds at the tip of a branch. I slowly crept toward the end of it and I was sure that it was strong enough to hold me, but I was so super wrong.

I fell, and fell, and fell for what seemed like three days. I landed on the ground with a thud. My little paw hurt so bad that I wanted to cry. I got up and cleaned myself off and started to go back up the tree, but as soon as I took a step I squeaked because it hurt like the dickens!!

When my people family came out to feed me they saw that I was walking funny. They made a big fuss over me and the next thing that I knew I was back inside their big nest. I guess I'm staying here until I feel better. I sure do miss being outside though.
