Ok so only one survived but its exciting to have many little wild furs visit our clinic. The first squirrel came in, the shelter couldn't keep him overnight so they asked if they could bring him here. He was healthy and they say he was tame, they suspect he may have been kept as a pet. But the food provider didn't want to take the chance of opening the door and possibly having him get loose.
Next the Night SPCA (hes the one that works throughout the night and deals with emergency calls for the shelter) he came to pick the squirrel up and asked if we'd take another squirrel in exchange, MOL. Well, he didn't quite phrase it that way. This squirrel wasn't doing so well and was on the way to another place but he wasn't sure if it would survive that long. This squirrel must have had babies somewhere by the looks of it.. So we took it in and hoped his condition would improve but unfortunately after an hour or two she passed away. When she came in her temperature was unreadable (VERY low) and was on her side breathing deeply. She was also covered in fleas so that must not have made her feel any better...
Next is the baby bunny... We seem to get a lot of those. Did I mention any baby bunnies in past entries? I may have started after we had them. We had two baby bunnies come in one day after the other about a month ago (or so). One was healthy, the other one we tried to revive but passed away. But todays bunny was not in good condition at all and we decided to put him to sleep right away so he didn't need to suffer. We'll post a picture of the healthy bunny from a month ago. They are just so cute!! Oh and of course they look fun to play with ;).
Simon was most interested in the squirrels this time, I (Tony) was having too much fun with the new turbo scratcher. The food provider decided to put a towel under it cause i'd run into the room and jump on it and it would skid half way across the room!!! It makes a horrible sound when it moves on hard floor. The food provider took it home in hopes to put a grip of some sort on it. And after I was finished playing I went to Simon's cage and had a good nap on his bed, his bed is so much nicer then mine!!!! What makes them think he deserves the bed and not me? Anyways that is one of my hideaway sleeping spots now.
A list of our 10 favorite sleeping spots:
1. Catscale in the cat exam room
2. The printer
3. The staff's chairs. Especially if they get off and are planning on coming back.
4. Simon's Bed (My spot during the night, Simon doesn't sleep here except during the day)
5. Upfront on the cat bed by the window or on a chair upfront
6. On files in which the staff are using
7. Oh and I can't forget patient's cages!! One of Simon's favorites!
8. Under the couch in the Dr's office (my 'secret' hideaway)
9. The staff's laps
10. Cupboards that we open and slip into (we don't sleep in cupboards very often, but we love opening them!)
Hugs and Purrs,
Tony and Simon

Wow - baby bunnies are almost as cute as kittens!!! Luv, Tink
We had a bunny named Thunder Bunny and she was my best friend. Zach used to play with her, see he would slip up behind her and then she would do a jumping 180 and scare him off. MOL!
Bunnies are great.
Baby bunnies are so cute! I've seen some out the window here!
Wow - you live exciting lives, and you've got some great nap spots too!
