Batman, silly squirrel is doing well here in the country.

Batman, the squirrel

Batman, the squirrel, came to us via a family who had rescued him when he fell out of his nest. His eyes weren’t even open when they found him. They nursed him, loved him all the while he became a part of their family. But the time came when Batman needed to go back to where he belonged, outside. 

Mark and I live in the country and Batman’s family lives in the city. With us, being released back into his natural habitat the threat to this beautiful animal is low. Thankfully his family entrusted us to release him back into the country, full of trees, leaves and acorns. He absolutely loves it.

Welcome Batman

He is enjoying his new-found friends, a plentiful supply of food and the freedom to roam wherever his heart desires. He’s has had a few mishaps but has mustered through them. He had to learn to sleep at night and not all day long. He learned how to climb down a big tree, that was fun to watch. Smelling each and every leaf along his way was tiresome to watch. He probably made himself sick by eating acorns non-stop off of the deck. No other squirrel out here eats them. Then he seemed to have a mishap with a raccoon in the middle of the night. The coon got a big piece of his tail, but batman survived…. And yesterday Batman finally found his bark. A cat made his way into our backyard, doesn’t usually happen but when it does all the squirrels bark and chatter until they leave. Batman not only joined in, but he was the first to sound the alert. Way to go Batman. Please enjoy our photos of Batman’s life out here in our very own wonderland. Pretty soon we won’t be able to tell him apart from the others. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

He smells the
scent of his humans

He found his blanket

and he’s going in

At last, he’s
safe and sound

Lots of space
for Batman

He’s fascinated with
the trees & leaves

Finally he’s coming
up for peanuts
