Life Support

Some of the squirrels are definitely having a hard time finding enough to eat. I just found this little guy yesterday and he doesn't look so good. He has a bad case of what's known as mange. I'm seeing more and more cases like this now that the new regime of not feeding squirrels has been in effect for a few months. I fed him a lot of nuts and it was as if  he couldn't get enough. He just kept eating and eating! Will I ever see him again?

The squirrels are magical creatures who seem to come out of the woodwork, then disappear again. Sometimes I get the feeling that there's a whole world of squirrels all around us that we know nothing about.
