Shizzle the squirrel

Well as I mentioned in my last post Shizzle the squirrel was coming to live in my garden.
His adopted Mum Alex, delivered him today and let him out in our shed.
We had a minor panic as he raced from the shed and around the garden on the ground rather than go up any trees and for about 15 - 20 minutes we thought he was never going to race up our huge chestnut tree. He didn't go far though and came back to Alex for a fuss and a cuddle before he finally made it up into the branches...and he's been there ever since. He's been exploring each hole, crevis and some previous squirrel dreys and seemed to be having a whale of a time just racing around above our heads. Alex stayed for a couple of hours and Shizzle never once left our sight or the garden so it seems the chestnut tree does meet with his approval!
Isn't he cute!?!

Have there been any more sightings of Cyril since he decided to live on his own?

Hi Jeanne, no more sightings of Cyril sadly, he's probably got a woman in every tree by now!

He IS cute! And I'm jealous - I was trying to photograph the squirrels along the paths in our neighborhood, but none would pose for me. So, just yesterday I went to our nature center and photographed a stuffed squirrel - thought I'd paint a picture of him one day and try to pass him off as live!

I was also wondering about Cyril! I do hope he is gallivanting from tree to tree - Shizzle looks quite at home!
