Re: adopted 4 babies yesterday!
Great Balls Of Squirrels! Its hard to believe its been almost a month since we adopted these cuddly babies! the 28th will be 1 month on the dot! they are doing great and eating up a storm. so far they have has veggie puffs and carrot yogart treats from the pet section at wally world. we got some rodent block and they have been some what munching on it some. they like the yogart and the puffs much better.
as for real fruits and veggies, they have had Gala apples, red delisious, cucumber, tomatoe, and baby carrots. the LOVE the Gala apples, hated the red delicious, cuke and tomotoe somewhat and the baby carrots disappear in a hour or so..they hide the carrots and pull them out to much during the day time.
they are all using the branches very well now and hang upside down, climb upside down, jump from one branch to another ans 2 of them will even jump from the floor to the upper branches!
any ways here are new pictures in their new cage! its over 4 time the size of the one they were in and it took them almost 2 weeks to get used to it! a noise will still send them scrambling to their nest box!
the first picture shows all 4..one in the nest box,one on the feed cup(Alvin),one on the door (thats the dominate female) and one bottom by the water bottle,
second picture is of Alvin on the feed cup demanding to be given a treat.
and the 3rd is of the one who was at the bottom by the water bottle of first picture!
As I get Older, I have come to understand why our Founding Fathers chose our countrys motto to be "IN GOD WE TRUST", somehow they knew in the future WE would come to the point that WE COULD NO LONGER TRUST THE ONES WHO RUN IT!
