Day 130: almost adopt a squirrel

Another baby squirrel has been found abandoned. This one was older but hungry and found in a neighbours wheel well. It followed the children around probably looking for food.
He sat on my lap and nuzzled up but he was much more active and nibbled me a bit. He was given some nuts and rehydrating drops. Poor little darling was starving and oh so thirsty.

My Neighbour couldn’t have two squirrels so I said I’d take this one if she couldn’t find anyone else to take it. I researched their care on the interwebs and named him George Michael.

Here we are:

As much as I’d love to raise a squirrel, I asked to be the last resort. I am happy/sad to report that another home had been found. Godspeed George Michael.
