Rescued Baby Squirrel

(YouTube link)

I found him on a busy road. He had either fallen out of the nest or had been forced out by dead parents, either way his was in a pretty bad way when I found him. Weak, bewildered, staggering around and on a busy road.

Figured to leave him meant death within hours, and he was just too damn cute for that!

Initially we rehydrated him, and that had a big effect. Then we started feeding him dilute fructose solution... and he loved that. After that we found him a new home at the animal sanctuary.

I knew some people who found a baby squirrel and took care of it. When it got bigger they let it outside and left their window open, with peanuts in a bowl on the coffee table. It would climb up the bbq and into the window to get food. At first it was cute, but since it was so used to humans it wasn't afraid of them either. It bit my little brother. He didn't draw blood though. I don't know if it's still alive, though, I moved away.
