Hello Saturday !
Squirrels food bowl and “rock box”, crush 2 almonds and put under rocks so they can dig at it (I haven’t had to trim the squirrels nails in about 5mo!)

Maxwells mad sound. He only get maybe 2 nuts in their shell a day so he’s very protective of it.

How sweet...Maxwell still gets his therapeutic rubs every day (I don’t think he necessarily needs them anymore for hair growth but he definitely loves them 😁)

Oh..sweet-potato 🤗! So if you remember the sweet potato video I posted about 4 weeks ago... well this is what it looks like this morning...
And for those of you that are wondering when to start looking for potatoes under the soil- well the plant has to flower first...then when the flowers fall off you can start digging! 🐿️🥔 (and in the meantime you can snip off a leaf or two and feed it to your squirrel)

My little precious Maxwell... he just won’t let that tail grow out. He will let a few grow out and then he will nip them off 😏🤦‍♀️

Ok so this is what a “pet” squirrel can do. Let me explain... I was bathing Maxwell 😏 and I accidentally hit the water on (it’s a touch faucet) and water hit his face sooooo he bite me in-defense, I told him to let go (one hand was holding him and the other was soaping him up) AND HE BIT ALL THEY WAY TO THE KNUCKLE! (Y’all like in terrible slow motion)😖😭🤭 the pain was intense to say the least!! -I’m ok and so is Maxwell. Something I never want to experience again. Ps I still love the little guy.

MoMo likes my flourless pumpernickel bread 😆 ... watch both videos - he does that weird clucking sound in the 2nd video when he runs away ... and Maxwell is like y’all are crazy 🤪

After lots of research and advice from multiple squirrel handlers I have changed Maxwell and MoMo’s diet to include LOTS of greens and low phosphate veg. With no more fruit! (On occasion a fruit can be given the size of a Lima bean or penny) they also get 2 blocks a day (I went back to henrys) and 1-2 nuts in its shell a day. A couple times a week I will include natural greens like dandelion, cloves, lamb quarters and fern bulbs.

Botany at its best... we have acres of ferns - so I started researching and here you go ... squirrel friendly as well (low traces of phosphate) 👍🐿️. Maxwell and MoMo ate it....

I love these 2 little squirrels 😍... they’ve been hanging out with me as I’m doing laundry -playing and hiding. I was able to capture some of their cute love for each other... swipe left for another video.
MoMo knows her name 😅

Poor Maxwell he just doesn’t understand how beautiful his tail could be 😏. I’ve noticed he will let a few grow out and then he “nips” them off again 🤦‍♀️🤪.
