    Default missing squirrel

    Not sure where to post, but I released my 3 boys in April. About 3 weeks ago now my sweetest one disappeared. The other two come to me for food but thatís all. My other one Robbie always jumped on me as soon as he saw and was very territorial around me. I have been out calling him everyday (looking like a nut)! I know itís mating season but I have also noticed my other two chasing a squirrel and I donít know if it Robbie and they have given him the boot! They were brothers from one litter.I guess thatís doesnt matter at some point. Does anyone have experience with their missing squirrel coming back??? Is it normal for them return after mating season??

    They can disappear for days, weeks... even months.. only to show up one day like they were never gone. Especially boys.

    Hi Heather. My most recent release (a singleton boy) has followed the same timeline. We released in April, and he came to me each morning for his block when I called his name. He skipped a few weeks in the middle of May and then came back daily through early June. He didnít show up one day, and I havenít seen him since. Itís a little heart breaking, but Iíve read so many stories of them just popping in one day that I keep my hopes up. I hope you can, too!

  5. Serious fuzzy thank you's to Mermer9 from:

    Yep, mine would have a perfect routine for a week then vanish for a month or two then come back and do it all over again. I swear he got me used to the sporadic-ness so I wouldn't worry when he made his his final move. I like to think it was his way of explaining to me, "i got this, i'll be fine". With the height of the warm weather and food abundance your guy is probably having himself a very big adventure.
