Thank's everyone,here is a very happy momma-squirrel,saying thank's to everyone tooI'll try to get the babies tomorrow.
You can see the little wound above her nose,from trying to get to her nest.

It's the owner who insisted on putting chicken-wire all around the roof,although the babies were not out,the renter says he would never hurt an animal and he's not mad at me for asking HS for help.
The couple who owns the 3 female in-tact cats have moved to their own house,phew!!

About our Oakville HS,it is a great place,or as great as any shelter can be,the staff is wonderful,especially the young lady who helped me out with a trap for the stray cat and now the Squirrels.
They cover a huge area,not only Oakville.
It is a sad place,too many animals needing homes,but no animal gets killed,just because there are too many.
In normal circumstances if you have a wild critter in your roof,you have to call Wild Life people,at a great cost,but this was a case of animal-cruelty and I am very glad I got help.

I am watching 2 of the babies right now,I don't know where the third one is,maybe with mom.
I am going to go and put a suet-cake out and some peanuts,hopefully I'll be able to get a pic of the little guys.
But they are FREE at last and I am sure they'll survive.
A happy ending to this chapter

Melinda,I don't think Hubby would go for that,I already buy huge bags of good birdseeds,peanuts in the shell,suet,big bags of corn,also I bought a jar of peanut-butter although we do not eat the stuff.
I would have to make hubby look for a job,maybe a greeter at Wal-Mart,he would draw a good female crowd

I managed to take a pic of one of the babies,who was brave enough to come and get a peanut on my deck.
This one and another are about the same size,then there is one a little smaller.
I have not seen mom today,no,I am not going to worry

Oh, wow, chico! I was thinking they were red squirrels! It's the red squirrels around here that tend to like attics and eaves...the gray squirrels and fox squirrels are mostly tree nesters here.

Cute baby!! He sits up so pretty!

Ah what a relief Chico--so happy to hear that momma and her kits are all safe.

The pictures are great and it just goes to show that a little perseverance can go a long way.

Way to go--Chico2

I saw a red squrriel, while I was on my way to a call the other day. He was gorgous and unique looking. He was a dark red and his tail was a tawny colour with some brown highlights in it *lol*. I was like damnit I forgot my camera....again.

ACO,the 2 I posted with the corn are of the Red Squirrel,not good pics,you can't really see the color that good.
He was so much smaller than a regular Grey Squirrel.
