Camera Critters # 24


MEET COSMO

I'm sure it's been done before on Camera Critters, but I couldn't resist throwing an old camera into the composition.

My future husband W.P. adopted a five-week old motherless baby squirrel last week. At six weeks, he's getting healthier and feistier by the day. The photos below were taken a week ago...




and these, just yesterday.

  2. That one with the camera looked like he believed turn0about was fair play. He's pretty darned cute, but I hope he doesn't eventually bite the hand that feeds him.

  8. Clearly, he thinks Flannel Shirt (don't know if that's you or WP) is "Mommy" :D Hope he continues to thrive.

  9. I'm generally not overly fond of rodents, but Cosmo is pretty cute. I'm looking forward to letting him go (and he clearly a male) when he's ready but I hope he'll stay around the house. I've thought about if we could put some sort of tiny band on his ankle to distinguish him from the other squirrels around our house.

    And Tink...that is W.P. in the cotton plaid shirt. I'm definately not a flannel shirt type gal! AND I only Mommy humans! hehehehe :-)
