Oscar's Day in the Gatineau

Oscar had a fine day today, driving through the countryside with the top of the MG down, him snug as a bug in a rug in his picnic basket.

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.
Long claws on hairy feet and the beginning of a bushy tail.

Interesting pads on the bottom of his hind paws.
