I wish he would notice the nest tube I have iat the top of the cage with insulation in it.
Maybe he knows bad weather is due tomorrow. He discovered the nesting tube today. I was hoping he would go to it early as a place to relax and not be too stressed during his transition. Not to mention he can pretty much get out of the weather.

Then again, it may have been the bread I placed near the top at the tube.
Anyway, he can go in there and watch without being watched now. H ewill peek his head out to see what is going on if he hears someone get near the cage.

If I have any luck with him, I will make a few more modifications to his home for his comfort and safety in regard to weather, heat, rain, etc..

Btw, I will also keep him something to gnaw on so his teeth get long enough to cause problems.

Our neighborhood has an extreme overpopulation of squirrels, last Spring I got one of the Hav a Heart live traps and through Fall caught a dozen squirrels, using bird seed, peanuts or sunflower seeds. We relocate them to a large park 3 or 4 miles away. So far this Spring we've caught two (the population in the immediate area has slimmed down a bit but there' still plenty around.

The alpha male is still eluding us but one of these days, I'll get him...

Wow, Epson. Where do you live?

My local humane society will NOT come out for a squirrel problem, not for money and ESPECIALLY not for free. Also, Maryland state law requires that if you surrender a wild animal to them, it be destroyed.
If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.

Feeling lucky sucka! The number of unlicensed handguns sold to squirrels just last year increased over 4,000 percent.
