Winkelhimer Smith is a handicap squirrel I rescued out of one of my outside cat's mouths.She is now a house pet and enjoys eating nuts,jumping on my shoulder and painting.No she really DOES paint.
She's gotten press coverage online for it and almost 40k hits on youtube.
One of my outside strays grabbed her off the tree by her little arm when she was just a bit bigger then a baby.Her arm got infected and he must have broke her wrist.The min she was attacked I bought her in because I figured she would at least pass in piece.But I still gave her some sugar water to see if she would perk up and some kitten infection meds.Her little nose was all bloody poor little thing.And she lasted the night so me and mom fought and fought to save her.And now she's getting 40K views on youtube!I'm so proud of her.She's got a handicap/non working hand because of the accident but it doesn't stop her.

Awww, Winkleheimer! What a sweetie! (Love the name, though now I'm going to have that song in my head!) From what I've observed in years of backyard feeding, squirrels' intelligence and ability to learn varies a lot, but some are certainly very good at learning from observation, as Miss WS did.

I noticed from the video that she seems to lose interest in painting quite quickly. But in the wild they can keep doing the same fiddly thing, like peeling a pinecone, for quite a long time. Have you found that her attention span for painting is increasing as she gets used to it?

BUAHAHA! My entire household is quite amused by Winkelhimer Cheesy I imagine squirrel art is somewhat more affordable than elephant art? Tongue
