Mooch the squirrel..... Mooch has been with us for several years, and has many descendants also in our yard and trees. He is fairly tame and follows me around the yard especially when he is looking for a hand out....hence the name "Mooch." We are in the wooded lots around Cedar Creek Lake 60 mi SE of Dallas.

[EXTERNAL] Squirrels Staying Cool I though I was the only one with a deranged squirrel... I'm Sarah Mason in Justin, Texas and my squirrel spent 8 hours in the birdbath soaking last Saturday. Has been back 5 days in a row. Staying hydrated and loving the sunflower seeds I'm leaving on the ground.

My neighbors are doing their job of taking care of the small animals in the neighborhood by making sure they have a cool wet place to lay down and relax.... Pictured is a momma squirrel and her two babies.
