Newest member of the family

My neighbour from across the street, Rob Merrilies, brought over the newest member of his family to show me, a few days ago.   It was a young Red Squirrel that fell out of a backyard tree.   Rob took pity on the little guy (or gal) and gave it something to drink and eat.   But the little guy either didn't want to climb back up, or didn't know how, so the Merrilies clan has a new mouth to feed.   I'll report more on this story as it unfolds.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. A cute little guy. Hope he doesn't turn nasty on them when he gets older if he doesn't go back into the wild. Red Squirrels are the neighbourhood bullies!
