We have a maybe problem. A squirrel baby is living in my potting bench. His mom is nearby scolding us all. The baby looks at us all cute and stuff. The Manx can barely control themselves. My potting bench is the perfect place to be for a squirrel baby. There is no way any of us can get to it through all the stacked up plastic pots. My poor potting bench housekeeping skills have made this a perfect baby squirrel living/hiding arrangement. Our baby squirrel, who is yet unnamed, is very chatty. The bunnies are confused. I was afraid for its little life until I realized that apart from cleaning up the potting bench that nothing, not dog, cat, monkey, or gardener could get to the little guy when he/she starts burrowing through all those plastic pots. So do I just wait until he/she moves on? What if this is a permanent arrangement? Am I responsible for providing food for this squirrel? I'm sort of sick of listening to his mother complain.
