holding baby Growing fluff tail eating nuts

I just HAD to show you how much Snickers has grown since coming to live with us! The first picture was taken on Aug 26... the next one was taken today! Amazing... look at him... woooooo has he ever grown! He's huge!

Snickers has learned to flick-flip (or is that flip-flick) his tail... for 3 days now, he is running around his house flicking that tail! I'm not sure he knows "why" he is doing it... he just seems tickled that he's learned something new! ...and I have to admit... it is fun to watch!

We started to get worried because Snickers wasn't eating his food... puppy chow and cereal that he normally would gobble up. So I got on the phone and called Nonda... duh... I felt real stupid... right now squirrels in the wild will be preparing for the winter months. If you watch squirrels right now... they are gathering and eating lots of nuts... fatty foods to build up their bodies for the colder weather. That is exactly what Snickers is doing... being a squirrel!

Snick is still eating his fresh vegi's... Snickers LOVES broccoli! ...and mushrooms, and carrots, and spinach... and nuts... and berries... and... and... I was warned... Fox Squirrels LOVE to eat! His lil mouth just keeps a-going... nibble nibble! It appears that he is eating VERY fast... but if you watch, he is taking tiny bites and chewing several times before swollowing!
