I haven’t posted on the blog in a while. However, I just found the following video of a squirrel taken in by a loving couple when his mother abandoned him as a baby. Chipster is agile and quick like most squirrels and has lots of personality as mentioned on the video. One of the cool things about squirrels is their tenacity in the face of adversity. They survive in spite of cats and other predators, yet manage to keep a curiosity. Everything that I have seen and read about squirrels suggests them to also be quite friendly, but still retain their wits about them. If I had to chose between a racoon and a squirrel, it would be a hard choice, because they are both such intelligent creatures.
