Let’s Get Ready To Rumble!

Wrestling with Kevin is very important…it helps him burn off baby squirrel energy, and he stays used to being handled. Not to mention he loves it! I do my very best to make sure he gets two vigorous wrestling matches each day. Pinkie is a big part of it because he enjoys that even more than wrestling with The Momma.


Squirrels are tough little wrestlers, with lots of play biting and scratching from those sharp little claws. I’ve started wearing gloves and a heavy jacket during my interaction with him, but sometimes I walk in the room accidentally without the gloves. Immediate regret follows because did I mention he has sharp little claws?



In other Kevin news, we added some more limbs in his room and plan to add even more. Seeing him running and exploring these limbs makes me excited to see him in the trees on his release day. It’s where he belongs, and it will be amazing!





He’s about 10.5 weeks old. The earliest age to release is 14 weeks, but since he’s a singleton, we’ll give him a little extra time to mature.
