Two youngsters met him today and were enthralled with his story: how the cat brought him home and how he started out looking like the end of their thumb but now, six weeks later, is a miniature squirrel. They loved watching him eat.
The other thing that amazed the children was Oscar's feet. What amazing claws he has developed! No wonder squirrels can climb so well.
