A squirrel fell out of my maple today...God is laughing!

milehighgirl(CO USDA 5B/Sunset 2B)September 2, 2012

I was watering in the dark and something in the flower bed around my maple tree moved. At first I thought it was a toad, but toads don't have tails. Since I had wet it down it looked slimy and it crawled like a lizard.

My neighbor is a reptile lover so I called her over. One more look with a flash light and OMG it's a baby squirrel. It took me all of a few seconds to fall in love. We warmed him up and fed him and now I am having such a hard time thinking about setting my trap.

God is getting a good laugh at me right now!

THere was a lady on America;s Got Talent with a pet squirrel who road a motor boat and peed on the host.
I see fame in your future.
