Update: Fred the Squirrel!
He is growing fast!
His tail is getting more and more MAJESTIC:
And he's getting more independent!
Well, SORT OF.
Now, instead of eating on Josh's lap, he eats on Josh's head:
He is a monster!
My arms, chest, and neck are covered in scratches, because it turns out that when you let a squirrel use your body as a tree, THEY WILL ZOOM AND ZOOM AND ZOOM AND THEY DON'T CARE HOW MUCH BLOOD THEY DRAW. These adorable toes each end in a MIGHTY TALON OF DOOM:
He continues to be adorable!
He is getting frighteningly good at jumping!
He is also getting more and more into exploring!
The cats continue to be... pretty chill?
I mean. Apart from leaving Chipmunk Butts in front of his cage—which feels to me like the cat version of a horse head in your bed.
Note: This is not a Chipmunk Snuff Film, he eventually escaped (with an assist from me):
