Baby Oscar, Not Being Released

A very sleek Oscar.
Not until spring, that is. He was going to be released yesterday, actually, but it called for rain so the date was put off until today.

Although two of the female squirrels, Jackie and Missy, are probably ready, the younger female, Honey, is not. And as there was an unexpected snowfall yesterday that did not melt, it is deemed that the foursome should overwinter inside and then be released to the first warmth of spring.

See you back here in six months!

Such  a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables but Oscar still enjoys avocado the most.

Note the long white hairs in Oscar's tail. Maybe there's a bit of skunk in the family history.
