when i met scruffy  

I couldn't resist jumping ahead of 300 peektures to post a few squirrel ones first. :)

So, he told me there were lots of squirrels in Central Park. I couldn't wait to meet them!

The first time I touched a squirrel nose, I was so happy! I never thought I would ever get to touch a squirrel! I couldn't stop smiling all night.

The next day, we brought yummy offerings...

And they came right up to my hand!

Some were shy, and some were really friendly. :)

Then, I met Scruffy.

She is the best squirrel ever. :)

She may not have the prettiest coat of fur, having been wounded I guess by predators, but she was the sweetest little thing. :)

She ate out of my hand every time. :) Sometimes I could feel her furry little chin.

I also met Punky, a sweet little momma Douglas Squirrel, whom I thought was a chipmunk.

She was lovely as well :)

But Scruffy had already won a place in my heart...

I wonder if she would ever get her fur coat back. :(

Happy as a lark to meet the park residents! :)

These are the tip of the iceberg. A million squirrel peektures, I have. <3<3<3

I hope so! But hers are from wounds so it's scar tissue underneath. Would fur grow over those?

Hmmm, my chin one was cos of infection, but he had a cut previously and fur grew back over that patch. I think if the skin is not too damaged, it should grow back.

*cross fingers*

I wonder if I can still recognise her if her fur grows back completely. LOL! But I'd rather she gets her fur coat back of course. :D I'll update with any reports I get!

I must admit she does look v cool funky in this coat :p Definitely unique ;)

She might get cold if the fur doesn't grow back?

Oh no. Praying for her.. hope her fur grows back in time.

Someone reported to me that Scruffy's fur has grown back. :) A little uneven but growing back quickly.

Yay! I'm so happy for her. Probably she knows winter's coming :) Don't belittle animals survival instincts ;)
