I know a lot of you aren't squirrel lovers but my heart goes out to this poor little guy who seems to be missing a large portion of his fur. When I searched for reasons online it appears it could be the result of a fungal infection or mange.
Each time the temperature dips below zero I worry about him. I have the urge to tuck him up in a warm blanket or knit him a warm jacket.
When he didn't show up for two days I feared that something had happened to him.
But then yesterday there he was, my mate Archibald. He may not be the prettiest squirrel but I love how he rocks being different.
