Chunky Monkey

Penny is getting rather chunky. I am wondering if she's just over eating (she eats the same things as Krikkit and I don't give them a ton of nuts.... (mostly fruit, oatmeal, veggies, rodent block, etc.) I do give them some in shell nuts and I give them pecans as treats but I give them equal amounts ...

Re: No Sew Pouch

That thought actually crossed my mind while I was making one for skittles but then I figured it would look lopsided. LOL!

Skittles is doing well and is up to almost 3mL at a time now! I took a barely damp paper towel and ran it over her to clean her up a bit but now she has a "oily" look to her now that won't seem to go away. She dried that way after I wiped her down and its been 2 days now. What is the best ...

Help with pup.

OK, the pup (now named Skittles) is eating well and knows its time to eat when I pull the syringe out. I had to wrestle it away from her this afternoon as she tried to feed herself (from the wrong end) :roll: She's also eating pine nuts and small bits of cheerio/fruit that I put into her box. At wha...

I found a pup a couple of days ago. Actually DH found him and yelled... "I think there's one of your flying squirrel things out here." I scooped him off of the cement behind the car. I have no idea what tree he came from. He must have crawled a good distance unless he fell off of the roof....

Re: Thinking about getting a FS, have a few questions

Yes, the initial cost is the biggie (the squirrel and the cage). After that the food isn't much because I just give them bits of what we are eating (the healthy bits) and the seed mix (which lasts a while). You can find lots of stuff in the yard to feed them as well, as long as there aren't chemical...
