Rocky the Squirrel Update

Remember Rocky the Squirrel? Rocky the baby squirrel was found by one of our pet parents, seemingly abandoned by his squirrel family. When Rocky turned the ripe old age of 3 months, he was released outside to a tree where he could still have access to Dr. Luna, his “mommy”. Immediately he started foraging for food but he would always return to “mommy” for whatever treats she is willing to give. Over time, this gets to be less and less, but even now, while he has adopted a squirrel family in the area, he still stops by “mommy” just to say hi”. Rocky is happy and enjoying life in the wild. He has found a home nearby familiar people, and is getting along with his new squirrel friends. He forages for his own food, although special treats are occasionally placed out for him.
