Tiny Squirrel babies that is.
oh what a mess…
So today is a BEAUTIFUL day. I got off work early, and I decided to open the balcony for the kitties. They have been going stir crazy. So they are out and I am organizing the patio furniture and I look at the BBQ.
I remember last year we had a robins nest in it. The eggs were abandoned tho, probably after we opened the balcony and the cats scared off the momma. I didn’t even know till later in summer. (We aren’t big on bbq’ing ourselves. tho we love to eat it)
Well I open the lid to see if we had anything this year.
Well the nest had been covered over with insulation and material and a big furry black face jumped out. I screamed and tried to close the lid quick. But the squirrel jumped out, I closed the lid partially on her. She continued to jump, and then jumped off the balcony onto the cars parked below. And then ran up the tall tree in front and began yelling at me.
I look inside the fuzzy nest and see maybe 3 or 4 naked little squirmy babies.
My heart just broke. I hope she comes back. I hope I didn’t scare her off too much… I would hate for them to be abandoned.
ugh… any advice? I am HOPING and praying she comes back and grows em up good. They should be grown up enough for the REALLY nice weather. So I won’t have to keep the cats off the balcony for too long… I hope.
