Momma!

Just a quick post to tell you all that Momma Squirrel came back for her babies!  (I know you were all losing sleep over it.)  We saw her up in the trees behind our fence line and then about an hour later when I went to check, only two babies were in the bird feeder.  I thoroughly checked the area for evidence of foul play (I'm looking at you, Foose), and found none.  Eleanor and I played outside for more than an hour and I didn't see Momma again, but then we went to dinner and when we got back that evening the other two were gone.  There is no evidence that said babies were Foose food.  (whew)  I was skeptical over how Momma would come get them, but the ridiculously detailed flow chart from yesterday insisted that she would be able to pick them up with her mouth and they sort of curl their little legs and tail around her neck to hold on.  I'm choosing to believe that this is what happened and that they are now living happy little squirrel lives in a new tree not far away.  Don't ruin this for me by suggesting otherwise!
