No… not those cute little charms made to go in the holes of Crocs shoes.
This is the Jibbitz we love…
I brought him home from the BRWC last Tuesday.
A couple had found him as a baby and hand raised him and they had handled him quite a lot. He is VERY human friendly and likes to jump and crawl all over you! I’m not exactly sure why the couple turned him over to the center, but last week I asked Peg… what are we going to do with that overly-friendly squirrel? She responded “release him far away from here!” So, of course I volunteered Sassy Cat Hill as a release site.
I let him go and he promptly ran up the nearest tree but couldn’t quite figure out how to climb back down as he has lived in cages all of his life and only had to jump from place to place. He caught on very quickly though and he disappeared into the trees.
I never saw him again until yesterday afternoon. I was out watering plants and he showed up on my potting bench right near where I had released him.
I went and got a handful of nuts and he quickly climbed up my leg to have a snack…
He hasn’t lost a bit of his friendliness, that’s for sure!
My dear brother, (aka the Baby-Genius) had given me this knot hole that he salvaged from a tree that had been cut down in my oldest brother’s yard. I made an owl house out of it, but Jibbitz seems to like it quite a lot so it’s a ‘Jibbitz House’ now!
