WOW! Again

Postby Joan » Tue May 12, 2009 1:41 pm

After reading Lynn's post (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7541&p=63143&e=63143) I decided I'd better check on Mishi who hasn't been out of her nestbox in days. Lo and behold ... 5 male pups with 5 o'clock shadows. I'm guessing a birth date of May first.
This makes her 10th litter for a total of 36 pups!

Well, when it rains, it pours! I'm glad to have been the inspiration for your bed check!

The other night, I decided to do Mishi a favor and set up a larger nestbox since she has 5 pups. I got one just right and moved the pups in. She's waiting at the door very aggitated and when I hung the nest in the old spot, she starts dragging out the pups looking for somewhere else to put them. She's so upset with me that she tries to take one into Chuck's nest where he was sleeping and gets him upset. Usually, she steals his nest when he's running his wheel, but this time he's home. He chases her off twice and the third time, she sloves a pup in and runs off. I'm about to have a heart attack thinking Chuck will kill the pup he so mad at Mishi. I grab his nest and get the pup in the middle of his war dance ... he's pissed. Anyway, pup is fine, Mishi uses a bigger hollow log nest. So much for trying to help out. :oops:
Today, the pups eyes are starting to crack open and all are fat and healthy. :D

Hi Joan,

Congrats on the babies!

Are you, by any chance, close to Jacksonville, FL? I'm in VA, but my daughter & her family are, sadly, in FL. I would LOVE to adopt one of your babies when they're ready.

I do, however, worry about the long drive back to VA. Do they travel alright? It takes us between nine & 12 hours, depending upon traffic & stops.

It's really funny. I've been searching and searching all over the internet for a breeder within driving distance (no way could I convince my husband to pay for a plane ticket for a squirrel). I've looked on the board here several times and just decided to go ahead an join so I could ask around. As soon as I'd finished writing my first post in the introductions I started looking around and found this post. Destiny? Fate? Answered prayer? Whatever, I sure hope I can get one of your babies!!!

[quote="Cheryl"]... Are you, by any chance, close to Jacksonville, FL?

About 15 miles south. Just south of Orange park. :D


I'm in VA, but my daughter & her family are, sadly, in FL. I would LOVE to adopt one of your babies when they're ready.

I'll be happy to send you an adoption application if you like.

I do, however, worry about the long drive back to VA. Do they travel alright? It takes us between nine & 12 hours, depending upon traffic & stops.

They sleep a lot, I've had them ride to NYC and Houston, TX. They're no trouble riding in a car.

Please do send the application! I talked to my best friend tonight and she'd also love to have one. She is a nurse who works evenings, doesn't go to bed until the sun is up, and sleeps during the day. She remembers the FS my family had when I was a child as warmly as I do. We'll plan to drive down and spend a long weekend with my daughter in Jacksonville...assuming we'll be found acceptable pets for your babies!!! 8-[

I can't tell you how thrilled we are to have found you and your babies! We're ready to start building the cages and stocking up on squirrel paraphernalia now! Honestly, I haven't been this excited since my last baby was born, close to 16 years ago!

Thanks so much :multi: =D> =D> We'll be praying all works out!!!! [-o<

Congratulations Joan, Mishi & Chuck! I can't believe it. I'm so jealous. I don't think Cali will ever have pups with Chip. She can't stand to have him closer than a foot from her. :( Keep us posted on their adventures. I'm sure there are going to be some very happy HOFs in the future.

Zoe, I will listen in heaven for your hoof beat.

Don't give up ... Mishi is just like that, but obviously, she changes her mind sometimes. :twisted:

Hey Joan! I can't wait to get Sprocket!! How are the pups doing? Any new pictures? I've been checking everyday, sometimes twice a day! I just can't wait to see more photos. :) I hope everything is great. Tell Mishi to take good care of my baby boy!! :)

Oh my gosh, I feel so late in seeing this posting. CONGRATS squammy! What a big happy family Mishi's got! Do the little ones have homes yet? I'm so excited! :multi:

Will you take pictures to show their growth? Or maybe Mishi won't let you.

Look at that little pile of flyer cuteness. Oh my, I need a moment to recover.



Okay, I've recovered. Mishi must have been fat with all of those little guys. I think a shower is surely in order. Everyone send Joan bags of nuts :-p

Wow, time flies. I can't believe it's been two months. Did you take any pictures? Just post one from a past litter and I won't know the difference. I am having a craving for flyer pup photos.
