Crazy me has taken on more dependents! Months ago the wonderful Toronto Wildlife Centre was looking for people to take on squirrels who needed a place to relocate so I signed up then forgot about it. Last week we got a message saying they had three young squirrels for us! For some reason, I was inordinately excited about this.
They showed up and installed a wooden nest box in our sugar maple and lo and behold we had three new friends in our yard. They appear to be adolescents. The wildlife centre left us with what was supposed to be a month's worth of seed which we went through in a week, all the other squirrels came too and then the birds.
They are very cute, and are learning that when I come out it means food. Just what we needed, more mouths to feed. At least we haven't named them yet.
Last night I went back to try to find a cat with a broken leg but no luck however I did manage to trap two kittens from another location, two more to go.
