As they are searching for food and are most times used to have humans around, they lost their fear. Well, this fellow lives in a nice park with hundreds of other squirrels, they are not looked after and not in cages. But they got the trick to beg for some nuts!
"The red squirrel or Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) is a species of tree squirrel (genus Sciurus). A tree-dwelling omnivorous rodent, the red squirrel is common throughout Eurasia. "

Very soon I noticed that they could be happier. I included a second tray and more possibilities to climb. They seem much more relaxed now and use their space happily. It is now in a total 210cm (incl. the aqua)!
I am totally against buying pets in pet stores. There are so many animals who wait in the animal shelter to find a new home. And most people in the shelters want to see their animals well looked-after. Pet stores only want to make profit. They sell a lot of rubbish for pets as well. You might think you can find there everything you need, but that's an illusion.
Mouse-cages that have the size of max. 50cm should only be a mere transporting cage. Running wheels with 15-20cm diagonally can cause a lot of illness and misshaping. Not to speak of all the plastic that could tear up their stumaches when they gnaw and swallow it.
The wheel I have is of gnaw-safe plastic and has a measure of 27cm. I have only found the German producer of the wheels: Rodenti
Everything else in their habitat is safe to gnaw. And they do it! The wood I built with is coloured with a paint that can be used for baby-toys.
So no plastic, better use wood, cartonages and ceramic. In facts, nearly everything you would also feel save to give a baby.

I used Puppenfimo(c) in the colour porcelain. My surprise about how he looked like after baking was big. But from the beginning.
The body shown above looked a bit like a young boy not like a baby. I had to change that.
The operation could beginn. Slicing up the body was able because this time I didn't use a core as I knew that he would only be lying down.
Tadaa! Out came a crispy little thing with a gorgeous colour. He was supposed to turn out white but this was ok as well. Not much paint work to do...
The wings are still loosily attached and I think I will make some better ones one day. But for now they do perfectly well.

It did take some time to get back into writing! But it is also great fun and I see that I have missed it very much...
On the first day I wrote down the first sentence! Great! I can make it! This is going to be awsome! Now I only need some more to keep going...
Hey, thats an interesting spot on TV, I got to watch it. No, better go on writing. Hmm, I haven't checked my emails yet, and suddenly I am back surfing around on sites that aren't really interesting at the moment, but to do everything instead of writing.
Ok, I ended it there. In the evening I finally managed to come onto 1,406 words. That wasn't too bad!
The second day was even worse. I'm at a total of 1,745 words now. But the story is going forward and I think the further I go the more easy it will be!
I always knew I need some goal ahead to write! Here it is! Here I'm coming, watch out!
