For those of you who own cats, you know well that cats bring home gifts.. Sometimes its a cricket, a mouse, very seldom an adult squirrel, once they grab hold of an adult squirrel they have their paws full.. Well, after a new breakfast treat, Mejia went for an outside tour, and upon returning, she left a gift on the floor.. Unharmed if you can believe that.. I was shocked..
She brought home a very tiny infant squirrel.. I’m standing there wondering.. what am I going to do now.. very seldom do you see them this small and it had to come out of the nest, or in transit.. And Momma Squirrels do have a habit of bringing them down, putting them under a bush and going back up for the others until she gets them all down, and then she transfers them from the bush.. Problem is.. I don’t know which bush.. or what tree and no mommas in sight..
So, here in a small brown box on the desk, wrapped in washcloths, is a tiny little person.. and its drinking carnation milk half with water.. from a tiny paintbrush.. It has a squeakily little voice, and gets around quite well.. lets hope it continues to do so..
