Harris County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,092,459,[2] making it the most populous county in Texas and the third-most populous county in the United States. Its county seat is Houston, the largest city in Texas and fourth-largest city in the United States. The county was founded in 1836 and organized in 1837.[3][4] It is named for John Richardson Harris, an early settler of the area. By the July 2016 Census Bureau estimate Harris County's population had grown to 4,589,928

John Richardson Harris, early Harris County settler and founder of Harrisburg, the son of John and Mary (Richardson) Harris, was born in Cayuga, New York, on October 22, 1790.

On May 7, 1813, he married Jane Birdsall. John and Jane Birdsall Harris settled near Waterloo, New York, where two sons, DeWitt Clinton and Lewis Birdsall Harris, were born. In 1819, they were living in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, where their daughter Mary Jane Harris Briscoe was born. A third son, John Birdsall Harris, was born in 1821.

At Ste. Genevieve, Harris met Moses Austin and decided to move to Texas. He came to Texas in his own vessel in 1824, and received title to 4,428 acres of land at the junction of Bray's and Buffalo Bayous in what is now Harris County. He boarded with William Scott while he built a house on the peninsula between the bayous and a store and warehouse on Buffalo Bayou.

In 1826, he employed Francis W. Johnson to lay out the town of Harrisburg. With his brother David Harris, John Harris established a second trading post at Bell's Landing on the Brazos River. Their sloops and schooners plied between Texas and New Orleans. One of these vessels, the Rights of Man, carried 84 bales of cotton to New Orleans in 1828.

Harris was building a steam sawmill-gristmill at Harrisburg in 1829, when he went to New Orleans to buy equipment and there contracted yellow fever. After his death on August 21, 1829, his sawmill and shipping enterprises were operated by his brothers David, Samuel, and William Plunkett Harris. His widow and son DeWitt moved to Texas in 1833; the other children came later.

Can Squirrels Get Rabies

If you've watched videos of people playing with squirrels on our site or YouTube, you understandably might now be thinking, "Hey, that looks like fun! Where can I buy a squirrel?" This article will explain how you can get all the cuddly squirrels you want for free.

First, before you jump in to getting your own squirrel, it's important to learn some basic facts.

Baby squirrels are remarkably willing to be raised by humans. It's amazing. For the first six months of their life, if you give them good care and love, they will happily accept you as their mama. They are enthusiastic fun loving little creatures, and you can experience many hours of joy with young squirrels.

As the babies come to maturity, the situation changes. Adult squirrels are like adult humans. They want to go off in to the world, live the life a million years of evolution have designed them to live, revel in their freedom, and engage in, um, baby making activities.

If an adult squirrel is denied the life they were designed to live, they become less cuddly, anxious, and maybe even a bit ornery. All the energy they would normally use in a natural life outdoors now gets applied to chewing on your furniture, electric cords, and maybe your fingers. Adult squirrels can not be house trained either.

If you take this approach, you'll find the vast majority of wildlife rehabbers will welcome you with open arms, and help you have the experience you want to have.

You don't have to dive in to raising baby squirrels until you're ready. As example, you might volunteer to baby sit baby squirrels for a few days when the rehabbers go out of town. You might volunteer to assist the rehabbers with their squirrels.

Once you're ready to have your own baby squirrels, you will have to spend some money on supplies. It's not real expensive, but especially the first time, you need to stock up on formula, syringes, nipples, cages and so on.

So, you've learned that baby squirrels make great pets, and adult squirrels do not. You've also learned that, if you do it right, you'll never have to buy a baby squirrel.

Squirrels lose hair for a variety of reasons. Many people assume that when they see a squirrel missing patches of hair, that it has contracted Mange. Mange in squirrels is caused by a tiny mite called Notoedres douglasi. They're similar to mites that cause scabies in humans in that they cause intense itching, but there's no report of squirrel mange ever being transmitted to humans! Healthy squirrels can usually recover from an infestation of mange, but it can take a considerable amount of time, and a lack of hair covering can leave squirrels at the mercy of the weather especially in winter!

Another cause of hair loss in Squirrels is a fungal infection called dermatophytoses. The squirrel doesn't actually lose its hair, it's just that the fungus causes it to break off at the skin. Most fungus like warm, moist environment to grow, therefore dermatophytoses is seen in warm moist climates, and during unusually wet periods. A squirrel can recover from this fungal hair loss as long as it's immune system is in good shape. A sick or immune compromised Squirrel may not be so lucky!

Unprocessed Coconut Oil is rich in a substance called Lauric Acid which is a natural anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti viral substance. You can read about the effect of this amazing substance on Candida Albicans, a common yeast type organism at: http://www.candida-albicans-cure.com/coconut-oil.html #R2. Since I've added Raw Coconut Oil to my Squirrel Supplements, my Squirrels have grown out hair that feels as soft as mink!

Hair loss in Squirrels can be a problem! But, I've found that improving the diet of affected Squirrels, and adding the right natural products to what they eat, goes a long way toward solving most of the problems!
