When I opened our store room, I saw a tiny squirrel. I knew there was a nest on the window sill of our store room. I was happy to see it and was planning on taking care of it. It ran out and hid somewhere. I caught it and released it in the garden as I knew with Preiti around it would be difficult to take care of it inside the house. As the day passed on there was yet another squirrel that wriggled out of the store room but became a victim as Preiti caught it. The third one also became a victim much as I tried to save it. I could not have blamed Preiti. It was her instinct. We have several squirrels in the garden and I am happy they get enough to eat. In the image you see a squirrel playing with the birds. Atleast I hope the one I managed to release in the garden is doing well Have you had any such experience?

I have never had a squirrel in the house. Not sure how I would react!

They are cute. There is a way I am told to tame them.

@NeldaHoxie We have had squirrels in our garden for years and so far they have not spread any disease.

That sounds awful. I hate it when cats or dogs get those baby squirrels.. I hope they other one you saved is safe.

@allknowing I was not planning on adding to your woes.. I can understand how you feel.. It made me sick in the stomach to read this.

What a great picture you have there. We have a lot of squirrels in our garden but I don't welcome them, as they dig up my lawn and bulbs. We've also had them in the loft - they are a real nuisance.

We have enough in our garden for them to eat and live and so I welcome them really. I have a video clip on this squirrel playing with the birds but I just posted the image as I know there are no takers here.

I saw a few squirrels around our area but they were very shy and scared of people. They just scurry away whenever they see people around.

We are used to having them around If not for Preiti I would have looked after these babies.
