7/23/13 Ok I made this hat for my neighbors squirrel. Her boys 7 and 5 came over and asked me for one and I gave them a preemie hat I had knitted. It was too big and she gave it to her granddaughter for her doll. So I looked up a smaller hat for Tikipoo. She rescued this squirrel when it was only days old. The mother had pushed it out of the nest because it was deformed with one hind leg missing. She tried calling wildlife rescue but they were inundated with squirrels. So she adopted it. It’s like a pet cat. Here is her facebook page where she dresses it up and posts pictures. Tikipoo This picture is of the hat on my squirrel cookie jar. You may wonder why I would do this. Her son cuts my grass and won’t take any payment. I bake them treats occasionally but thought this would be a good way to repay them. She is delighted.
Now she want’s a cape. I’ll see if the hat fits then I’ll think about a red riding hood cape.
