Here's a purple squirrel, all excited to present a yellow acorn to everyone participating in the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge. He wanted to join everyone despite two harrowing surgeries.
Unfortunately, purple squirrels are not a hardy genetically modified patchwork (GMP). As he was getting ready for his first photo shoot, the photographer noticed that the squirrel had a malformed jaw. So off to surgery it went. Then during the second photo shoot, the photographer noticed that this poor squirrel's entire hip was rotated 180 degrees. Ouch!
Here is the squirrel in the middle of surgery.
Buddy was up in the observation area, but it was all so gruesome, he couldn't look.
