Small with a bushy gray tail. All over a darkish/light gray color, with a little bit of white fur on the edges of the tail.
This is historic: My first iNat observation in Harris County, TX.
Grandchildren alerted me to the squirrel on the patio. (Visiting my 3-year-old grandson nearing end of "100 Day Count-Down" after successful bone marrow transplant for leukemia. He and his mother stay in a house near MD Anderson Children's Center, thanks to the generosity of a wonderful friend.)
The head was about 2-4 in long, with a small nose and the head was round. The head was mostly gray but had black eyes on the side of its face. The ears were small and pointy and tipped in white. The body was about 4-8 in long. It was slightly chubby and the body was gray except for white on the chest and paws. The tail was gray with a cinnamon stripe and tipped with white. The legs were short, about 1 in and were thin. The paws were gray with black claws. The claws were thin and were probably used to climb up the tree.
