My name is Rocky. My human parents rescued me when I was a tiny baby. I was fed with an eye dropper for several weeks, every two hours, by my mom. My blog will follow my daily adventures. And believe me I have a lot of them!

Me and my dad...

Mom took these last year. I won't let her put the Santa hat on me, this year. I know, I'm a brat!! LOL!

I've been a bad, bad boy....

For some reason, I have been biting my mom. I don't know why, but I can't seem to help it. She is the one that feeds me and keeps my cage clean, yet I bite her. I don't bite dad, truthfully, he doesn't taste or smell as good as mom does.

So I am spending LOTS of time in my cage and I don't like it one little bit!

I've heard rumors that I will be living outside if I keep it up. And, I am scared.

I'm a big helper!!

At least that's what mom says. Here I am "helping" her do the dishes!!

Even though I don't know what Thanksgiving is, mom said I should wish you all a Happy one! So, Happy Thanksgiving!!

I did hear a mention of chestnut stuffing and we all know how much I love nuts!!

Mom said I did a great job!!

My latest adventure...

On Halloween I decided I was old enough to have a place of my own. Mom was coming in the door and I snuck out. She and dad were sooo very upset. I teased and teased them...I ran from treetop to treetop, coming within inches of their reaching hands. They were both bleeding, from going in and out of the bushes looking for me. I really thought it was funny, until they went in the house and left me outside, ALONE. I found a rather good looking nest and thought I would hunker down for the cold night. Well, that didn't go over very well with the squirrel that built the nest and was calling it home. He chased me out of there and clear down the tree to the ground. Mom was outside and called to me-telling me that it was going to get cold and maybe rain, but I ignored her(who knew she was so smart). She went back in and had her birthday cake without me. The next morning she and dad called and called me, once again, I ignored them.

Mom's birthday cake!! Yes, that's me with a witch's hat on, holding a pumpkin!!

I ran around and acted like a fool for 4 days. Tuesday morning I was cold, wet, hungry and really thirsty. Who knew a squirrel could drink from the pond? I didn't. I was on the deck and mom saw me. She came out and called me over to her (thank goodness she wasn't mad at me). She picked me up and I climbed up on her shoulder. She was so happy and so was I. She gave me a good drink and some yummy food. Then she called dad, she said he started crying when she told him I was home. I will never run off again. Ever, I promise!!

I wonder if I like pumpkin pie....

I sure like the taste of this bumpy pumpkin that mom and dad picked at the pumpkin patch. So, I am wondering what pumpkin pie tastes like.

By the way, I have to admit that I am REALLY cute!!

Now what did I do?

I decided to teach myself how to type, today. BUUUUTTTT, I messed up my mom's computer and she doesn't know how to fix it.

Is there anyone here that can help her? Please, I'm begging for my life here, folks!! She says that the type is now really tiny. Anyone want to save a poor, little innocent squirrel's life? Anyone?

Meet my best friend....

Nuts! I know, I know, he's not real, but I love to roll around and play with him. He's a beanie baby, whatever that is!!

Now I lay me down to sleep...

I like to say my prayers before I go to sleep.

Do I look like a ferret to you?

What were these crazy humans thinking? They go out and waste perfectly good money, money that could be used for treats, on a ferret leash and harness. First of all, I'm not a ferret. And second, I'm not wearing a harness. Nope, not happening.

Sure it's all stylish in a zebra print and I'm sure I would look great in zebra print, if it wasn't made into a harness.

I see how silly that stupid little dog, Spikey, looks when he's on a leash and it's just not gonna happen!

Sorry to disappoint you, but maybe the cat will wear it.

Oops...I did it again...

I seem to be super hyper these days. I guess that it has to do with the fact that my blood relatives are outside scurrying around, building nests and storing food for the winter. I, on the other hand, am inside where it's warm and dry and have more food than I will ever eat just handed to me. I need some way to burn off all of my energy.

I just can't help myself. I'm a squirrel and squirrels climb. Well, that's MY story and I'm sticking to it!

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

I told you....

that my mom loves me! And I love her, too!

Here I am, giving mom a kiss!!

She will hold me and rub my chin and my head for as long as I want!

Who does he think he is?

Isn't this pretty? Mom loves this little display. It's on top of her china cabinet. It's fun to lay up here, cause I can tease the dogs and they can't get to me! Stupid dogs!

I love to lay up here, near mom's pretty things. But, I get in trouble since I tend to break things. Hey, I'm a wild animal! I can't help it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

For some reason, Ozzy, likes up here, too. He had better not make a habit of this. 'Cause if he does, I'm telling mom!! By the way, see that cute little pig? I broke it. :(

Peek A Boo...

I see you!

Mom keeps some extra towels and pieces of fleece fabric on hand for my beds. She has them hanging in a bag by the basement door. I decided that this is the perfect spot for a hiding place aka napping place! Bet you can't see me!

I've been Missing In Action, because I've been trying to hide from my mom. I got into some stuff I shouldn't have and broke a couple of mom's things. I knew that if she could find me, I would be grounded to my condo, again!
I think she's catching onto my hiding spots, though.

I love watermelon!

Sooo much! It is yummy and juicy and sweet. I could just eat and eat it. Unfortunately my mom and dad like it too, so I can only have a small piece. That is unless I sneak and eat it, like I did in these pictures. Ha, Ha!

Mom and dad went for a drive yesterday and stopped along the road so mom could pick me some soybeans.

I've never had them before, but they are pretty tasty! Dad says I'm spoiled, whatever that means?

Mom says that potpourri is not good for me. I don't know why, cause it sure tastes good!

Notice how I have worn the hair off my face? That's from trying to get out of my condo. I should know I can't get out by myself, but I keep trying!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009


Well, I did it again...I went hiking on top of the kitchen cabinets and I broke something. It was an antique figurine that belonged to dad's aunt Nita. I didn't mean to do it, but boy was mom PISSED. She tried to put me in my condo, but I kept running from her. I was having a grand old time, mom, not so much!

She finally gave up and when I realized I was "safe" I snuggled up to her. Like I said before, she doesn't stay mad for very long. Thank goodness!

Although, I did hear her mention something to dad about squirrel stew. I'm not sure I want to know what goes in that!

I'm grounded!

Let me start out by saying "it's not all my fault"!! Those human grandkids spent the night last night and they sleep in MY room. I really don't like to share, anything. MY food, toys, parents or bedroom.

Normally, my dad puts me in my condo in the morning before he goes to work. On the weekend I usually get to stay in my loft(this is where I sleep every night)! This morning I was the first one up, soooo, I decided to take a little hike to the top of the kitchen cabinets. My mom doesn't like me to go up there cause I tend to knock her pretty things off and sometimes (actually, a lot of times) they get broken.
I don't think she can see me!

Ah, crap...busted!

Okay, I'm getting down. I never get to have any fun.

So, into my condo I went. Just for a little while. Mom never stays mad very long. She loves me!

At least I didn't break anything, today!

I'm can anyone be mad at this face?

A lot of you already know me from my human mom's blog,
She loves me and talks about my adventures and mis-adventures often.

She and I thought this would be a good way for everyone to enjoy life, from my point of view!

Let me tell you a little about me and how I became a pet. Last year on September 25 my dad rescued me and my brother. We were walking down the street, straight into the yard of some pitbulls. They thought we looked like a yummy little snack. We saw dad and both went right to him. He picked us up and held us close. I felt so safe. When mom came home, she couldn't believe what dad was holding. She was surprised at how tiny we were.

They put us in a box with a soft blanket and some food & water. Sadly, my brother did not live through the night. I miss him. Mom and Heather went and bought puppy replacement milk, cheerios and grapes for me. That milk was just what I needed. Mom fed me with an eyedropper every 4 and night.

A week later mom and dad bought me my condo! It's actually a 3 level cage, but condo sounds so much cooler! They bought me treats and toys, too. After talking with a rehabber, they found out that I had to live with them through the winter, since I wouldn't have any stored food outside or a nest.

Pretty soon, I started to grow and wanted to explore a little. Mom was so scared that I would crawl in somewhere and wouldn't be able to get out. That never happened! Silly human.

I decided that I like the top shelf, of a set of shelves in the grandkid's room. I made it my loft. I knocked everything that was up there on the floor, to make it my own. Mom and dad gave me some blankets and a box. I have since decorated it with 2 of mom's disney Christmas socks, one of her disney valentine's socks and one of dad's tube socks. I made a little nest out of those. I like things cozy! I also have a barbie stuffed poodle for company. I tend to pick things up as I'm exploring around the house. Mom likes to thrifty shop and so do I.

I'll post some picks of my condo and loft soon!
