Update on our baby squirrel

Filed in Uncategorized by on December 7, 2007 0 Comments

If you remember, one of our sons found a baby squirrel.  You can read the original article http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474977126288

The baby squirrel was about 5 weeks old.  His eyes were still closed and he needed us to help him survive.  We ran off to PetSmart to get what he needed. 

 All he wanted to do was eat and sleep.  And that’s what he did.  His favorite place was in the pocket of one of our T-shirts.  He soon outgrew the pockets.  When he was about 10 weeks old, he started drinking only a little bit of his milk.  Time for pecans and peanuts. 

His favorite food was pecans.  Oh he would eat the peanuts but only if he had to.  He also loved carrots.

I can’t remember the date when it came time to return him to the wild.  I do know that it was a wonderful experience for all of us.  I am so glad that we were able to rescue this little guy.  I am glad that he lives in our trees in our yard.
