Worked at the Center for Wildlife on Saturday. Haven't seen my squirrels in a couple of weeks. They were sent to squirrel school, really, to figure out how to be wild. They were in an outdoor cage with four other squirrels. The four who didn't know me hid in their nesting boxes. Did I mention we aren't supposed to name them? And that I'm not supposed to give them peanuts (not that nutritious.) Especially not supposed to call out their illegal names, now that they are grownups and wild. But I did all of the above and Brownie and Greylings popped out of their nesting boxes, ate the peanuts while eyeing me cautiously. Such handsome big boys! Soon to be released out into the green, green trees. . .
