Yes Badger,she is and a wonderful mom:love:
There was a time,I believe 2 yrs ago,when all wild-animal babies were killed by the MONR(ministry of natural resources) and anyone finding an abandooned baby-animal would be hard put to leave the baby at any rescue-place.Thousands of coons,foxes and others were killed.
Squirrells very easily adapt to the wild once they've matured,as long as you don't just dump them far from"home".
My squirrel FiFi is not a"pet"although she's tame with me and hubbie,she lives across the street somewhere,but smartly uses the over-head wires to cross the street.The average life-span for a wild squirrel is 1yr,but FiFi has been with us for 5.A squirrel in captivity can live up to 13yrs.
FiFi has had 2 litters every year,that makes for a lot of babies
