Where The Wild Things Are...

What a surprise my daughter Sylvia found in the yard!

Two baby squirrels!

The first thing that she did was find out if they were alright. They were breathing, however thier eye were closed and ears still tucked in. They moved around slightly and made very tiny noises but seemed to be in shock, maybe from falling out of the tree.

The mother did not appear to be in sight. So she decided to take them in. She put them in a box with some bedding left over from ginuea pigs she used to have. After doing some quick research online about caring for them she proceeded.

There was one boy and one girl.

After reading she went to the local pet store and bought kitten milk and tried to feed them with a seringe. This was just until we could find the proper people to help care for them.

They seemed to take to the milk just fine. Suckling on the tip of the seringe.

Calling around she was able to track down someone locally who is certified in animal rehabilitation.

It is good to know that there are still kind hearted people in the world that love animals as well as nature to keep the cycle going.
