    Default Is this a baby squirrel or mouse ?

    My friend just found this little guy in her woods. Does anyone know if it's a squirrel or a mouse ?

    Moms will take back baby rats, but they come at night, unlike squirrels.

    Looks like a vole. Size of the head and muzzle... I'm not sure though. Lots of them in our woods here.

    My sweet Scooter, darling Hami, beloved gentle Simon... YOU are the ones who brought that magic in my life. You've changed the way I see all things around me now and, because of you, I want to be a better person. This is not goodbye, my sweethearts. You be at peace, your work here on earth is done... now you are finally, truly free. Until we meet at the Bridge again, just remember that I will always love you.
