I do not make claim to have taken this picture it was taken by my late father. My mum has given me authority to upload it as a stock item. If used please notify and credit I am sure she would love to see what you have done with it. Thank you
I love squirrels, I have raised 6 through the years when something happened to their mamas. Each one had a different personality and I learned so much from them. They suck their thumbs when they are babies. I release them back to nature once they are old enough.
After texting you a reply I saw a mom caring her baby back up a tree where it had fallen. Last night my dog was acting like he was guarding something. It was a baby squirrel, but it wasn't moving very much. I think its the one earlier I saw. I picked him up and started warming him, his little back legs doesn't work at all. he is alert otherwise and taking to the formula ok, but I am still waiting to see if he poops and pees. If he can make it, we want to build him a little something on wheels so he can get around. Keep your fingers cross, I named him charley.
Charley is doing well so far. He still can't move his back legs, but he is in no pain. That's why I think its his back, maybe he was born that way. But he eats well and he is able to go to the bathroom. I will wait to post pictures a while longer just to make sure he does ok. We are coming up with ideas of what we can rig up for him so he can get around. Possibly the wheels from toy cars might be a route we will go. I might wait to post pictures when we have him Mobil. He is such a sweetheart, we have already made a strong bond between us. I need to do his next feeding and get him ready for bed. I will let you know if anything happens, and when I post photos of him. Thank you for caring.
