The second creature was a Green snake. It also was run over by car. They are climbers and eat spiders and insects. It was right outside my fence also. I brought it into my backyard and it is also by the pet cemetery.
The third I write about below... For each soul being rescued by those of us here and their family members there was a soul returned to it's Maker.
I believe that all creatures have souls so it was with great sadness I found one of "my" squirrel's bodies in the road outside my fence.
I was on my way to the mailbox and stopped dead at the sight. What a lovely tiny creature. Returning to my backyard and got a leaf rake and picked its body up. It laid it to rest back by the pet cemetery. I placed it under a large brush pile next to the fence.
I am so sad. There are two Red squirrels that eat at my bird feeders. One lives up hill, the other down hill. But they both go across the street.
The snake would have been welcome in my "pasture" and the Monarch gave DGkid and I many hours of joy as we watched it feed on the Lantana out back.
As for "my squirrel... my heart aches.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
