||One and a half years old|
is my baby Zowie. I got him from a friend of mine when he was around
five weeks old. He had fallen out of his nest and had been cornered by some
dogs. Luckily though, he didn't suffer any injuries.When I got him, his
eyes were still closed but after two days, he opened them and eventually
could see his new mommy. When he got older, Zowie used to play by hopping
around my room and shaking his little head all around. He also loved to
have me chase him around the room and wrestle with my hand. Zowie man
lived in my room for five months over the winter time, but when spring rolled
around he was ready to get outside a do his squirrel thing. I was so proud
of him when I released him outside; he had the natural squirrel instinct
and didn't need any help from me. He built his first nest in a tree right
in our backyard and stayed out back for a while, but eventually he moved
out front, where after a year and two hurricanes, I still see him, as he
still likes for me to spoil him by feeding him walnuts.
What makes Zowie so special is that he brought so much joy into my life
and gave me one of the best and most valuable experiences of my life.
Zowie is the most special, beautiful, and most precious squirrel ever and
I love him so much!
