|Oscar just under six weeks old.|
I attempted to video him this afternoon by myself. Usually, someone helps because it takes two hands to feed him. However, I thought I would try to prop him up and feed him with my left hand while taping with my right. This ended up with hilarious results so I switched hands..and then back again.
Not sure Oscar wants to be a movie star but video is certainly a great way to capture his spurts of growth.
The other day, he actually did something I wish I'd caught on tape. He climbed the bars of his cage! This was a total surprise to me as he is barely able to crawl yet he was adept at climbing the bars.
And yet another thing, from time to time, he emits a high-pitch whistle that I can hear out in the back yard. It's a wonder every mother squirrel within two blocks doesn't come running. I know that I dashed up the stairs to see what was going on.
Nothing was the matter. He was simply vocalizing, trying out his voice/lungs, like all babies do from time to time.
