Eric the Baby Squirrel.

You're not going to believe this.

You're just not.

But I swear on my life, it's true.

I saw it with my own eyes and even got photographic documentation.

They rescued a squirrel.

A few things you should know:

4. There is a small group of about twenty guys here at camp that are getting the grounds and buildings all ready for the staff to arrive next week.

1. There are no children here yet.

6. Theses boys are ridiculous.

Basically, a group of the guys went into one of the cabins last week to clean it out and while they were in there they found a very skinny, very abandoned and very cute baby squirrel. The poor little guy came right up to them and the boys immediately took him in as one of their own. His name is Eric and they love him.

They built him a tree fort, feed him sunflower seeds and butter to fatten him up, and keep him warm.

They love him and want to keep him forever, but they know that he has to be released back into the wild and taught how to survive on his own.

They know this because they are responsible people and googled what to do with abandoned wildlife.

However, they are having a very good time carrying him around and freaking people (like me) out when they walk up to you with a baby squirrel on their shoulder. Or on their head. Or in their pocket.
