The squirrel sighs. It's remarkable how human it looks, the little shoulders shrugging up and down again as the breath rushes out.

"I am a squirrel, miss. But it is kind of you to inquire," he says. His voice is high and chattery, just as you might expect a squirrel to sound, though his tone is distinctly glum. "I confess, I have been better."

Marius is just staring. It is not very polite, but the squirrel is gracious enough-- thus far, at least-- not to comment.
