Default Check out this little guy!!

well alright,

so the other night i was over at my friend Jake's house. it was Jake,Matt and me, we were just hangin out in the drive way, and then we heard this insane screech/cry,screaming sound, so we walk around the corner of the house with a spot light(it was dark out) and shine it up into the tree..

and check out what im now nursing/taking care of


night i brought him home-



2 hours ago






my baby squirrel!!

there wasnt a nest insight in the tree it had fallen from. yes it had fallen from some area in it. it was hanging onto 2 limbs which were dead and much thinner then a pencil. i climbed the tree with a towel in hand, wrapped the towel around the little feller and he let go, no struggle at all, no squirm. i knew he was on the verge of dieing since it is a squirrel.and he didnt flinch.

fed him lastnight when i brought him home. and within 2 hours, prior to 2nd feeding. he had got back enough strength back to dart up my g/f's sleeve :jittery:

the 4 pics above were just taken. im feeding him Pedialyte for babys/infants.
he sure is getting alot of energy/shape back!

his name is Jackson by the way.

NO WAY. ym friend just received 4 baby squires to take care of !!
like 2 days ago . . thats cosmic!!!

don't keep it in a cage when it gets older.
have it like a cat or dog.
and you should read up on the food for these little guys so that you give it the correct stuff.

Baby squirrels I usually don't see but did the other day. The old woman next door to me always has food out for the birds so the squirrels find it also. We get a lot of wildlife in my yard, rabbits, groundhogs, racoons, snakes and whatever else finds their way in. I don't mind the snakes a bit as they keep the mice away.
I enjoy the squirrels as some of them are real characters. There used to be one that would scratch at the front door wanting food or climb up on a trellis on one side and peek in the window. Some will allow me to hand-feed them so those get special treats.

back when i was still living in FL, we had about 4-5 that would come up and take peanuts out of my hand. Cant seem to get any up here to do that.

That is awsome! I didnt know squirls made good pets. I have a big pecan tree in my front yard and there is a crazy squirl that lives off of it. He digs up my yard burrying them in the fall and during spring he digs them up. I dont mind him digging up the yard as it hepls to airade it [:-]. I will leave small pieces of wheat bread out for him some times. Hes wacky. My wife and I like looking at him out of our big front window.
