We've got great news! Your adorable Black and Brown Eastern Fox Squirrel from the Squirrel Tree feature will be staying on your farm! He'll still speed up your Trees & Groves for 20 days, and then live and play on your farm after that time.
See below for additional details and some important questions answered!
Will I still need to feed my Fox Squirrel?
Nope! Your little Black and Brown Eastern Fox Squirrel will not require any Treats nor Feed to stay on your farm.
Will my Fox Squirrel count towards my Animal Population Capacity?
When we originally designed the Squirrel Tree, we did not intend for the Black and Brown Eastern Fox Squirrel to be a permanent addition to the game. Since the release of this feature, we have seen a significant number of players upset about this design choice, so we have changed things to allow you all to keep your Squirrels.
Currently, the Fox Squirrel does not count towards your Animal Population Cap, but this will change in the future. We understand that this may be a bit confusing, but the change had to be implemented this way in order to get this update to our players in a timely manner.
Will I be able to use my Fox Squirrel to speed up Groves and Trees?
After you complete the Squirrel Tree feature and have earned the Black and Brown Eastern Fox Squirrel, you can use him to speed up Trees and Grove for 20 days. After that time, the Black and Brown Eastern Fox Squirrel will only play on your farm (as a beloved pet) and you will not be able to use him to speed up Trees and Groves.
