American Artist Creates Squirrel Houses | New Jersey Animal Control

Birds have bird houses, dogs have dog houses, but what do squirrels have? And why should birds get such special treatment by many homeowners when they are not even their pets? Sadly, nobody knows why some animals are often outfitted with little man made dwellings, but one thing we can all agree on is that squirrels are meant to be living outside and only outside. However, Nancy Rose, a photographer, builds little houses for squirrels, and that is not all Nancy does for squirrels.

Squirrels are probably Nancy’s favorite type of animal. She enjoys spending a good bulk of her time observing the bushy tailed creatures scurrying about on people’s lawns. Nancy takes pictures of squirrels right as they are involved in a particular movement. Nancy then takes these pictures and adds other objects into the picturess. These objects include a lot of miniature household objects, such as bowls, china cabinets, and kitchen accessories. Nancy’s final goal it to make it look like the squirrels are indulging in human activities.

According to Nancy, most people just assume that the squirrels are photoshopped into the scenes, but they would be wrong. A few examples of Nancy’s work includes squirrels mailing letters, cooking dinner, doing laundry, going camping or even vacuuming.

After several years of using squirrels in her artwork, Nancy has come to understand a lot about a squirrels nature. She has already seen with her own eyes how great squirrels are at hiding their prized nuts. Eventually Nancy landed her own publishing deal, and she has since released many books that showcase her work with squirrels. Nancy is hoping that her artwork, as well as her many books, will help to get people to appreciate squirrels more than they do, since they are currently regarded as a nuisance.

Baby Possum Barely Survives After Being Rescued | New Jersey Animal Control

Last fall a baby brushtail possum was found on the side of the road barely clinging to life. The small possum was found with a large wound located on the left side of its face. The baby possum was too young to have run away from its mother when it was found, which indicates that the baby was orphaned by its parents.New Jersey Animal Control

The deep wound on the side of the baby possums face turned out to be quite serious, as the cut was deep enough to expose bone. The baby possum weighed in at less than half a pound, which indicated that the possum was a mere five months old when it was found. The baby possum has since been named Tamala, and she has been very close to her new owner, who is also her rescuer. It is good to see that Tamala was raised with love and affection after all.
