One of the mysteries of life: unmystified!

I always wondered why you never see baby squirrels.  I never saw one!  But I can finally check this off my 50 Things to Ponder list because a friend of mine remembered my list and sent me this video of (you guessed it!) baby squirrels!

  1. Aw, they’re so cute. I wonder what part of the country that is. I’ve never seen squirrels with those markings. Beautiful. Ours are gray and there are a handful of black ones but none with spots.
    I rescued a baby I found on a side walk a couple years ago. But his eyes had been open for a while. My roommate and I took him/her to a wildlife rescue in the area.

      Texas (he says it in the beginning). About halfway thru you can hear the cicadas and they are pretty loud. My father lives in Dallas and one summer when I was there the cicadas sounded exactly like that.
      Awww, I bet you were sad to let him go, but at least he was okay. You did the right thing.

  2. The baby squirrels are orphans. Being a borderline, I feel like a kind of orphan too. In fact when the going got bad, a close friend told me to re-frame things in my mind and pretend(live life like) I was an orphan. Then I better knew how to proceed.

      A therapist told me that once too–to pretend my parents died instead of them being alive but being so rejecting. It did sort of change my outlook about things and I felt less victimized.

  3. Great video. So cute at the end where the two are fighting over a single strawberry.

    Here in our eastern New Mexico town there are no squirrels. Since we moved to this here 6 years ago I have seen coyotes, a gray fox, a black bear, owls, a skunk, a rattle snake, and mice. But not one squirrel.

      Coyotes and foxes! Cool! We do have black bears around, they like to rummage in trash cans. Once I was walking in the woods back behind my old employer, and almost came face to face with a female bear. Of course I turned and walked FAST the other way. I heard the bear going back into the woods. Probably had babies somewhere.
      I thought the ending of the video with the two squirrels fighting over the strawberry was adorable.
