I think I may have gotten the best holiday gift ever! Remember when I first met the little orphaned squirrel, Ms. Frances? Well, since her release back into the wild, I have been quite curious as to how she is faring...
I'm happy to share the above photos, sent to me by wildlife rehabber Maggie!
Apparently Maggie recently woke up to one happy squirrel, perched on her porch requesting a treat! After offering up a nut to this familiar soul, Maggie felt relatively certain that this was Ms. Frances back for a visit!
The following day, Maggie again received a visit from her squirrel friend.... and this time she was accompanied by the squirrel friend with whom she was rehabilitated months earlier! Alas, Maggie got to breath easy- knowing the orphaned squirrels she had raised together and taught to be independent, were still looking out for one another! Enjoying the freedom she had assured and thriving as nature had intended!
I can't think of a better gift to receive this holiday season! I am truly honored to have played even a small part in securing the safety and freedom that Frances and her friend have come to enjoy!
