CH found baby taking time to smell the wild violets. Too teeny to be out of the nest. No squirrel nest anyWHERE close and no squirrel Mom seen all day. Night is coming on and he is too teeny. Wandering cats will make short work of him. What now?
Licking water off CH’s hand and arm. Frantic call made to Missouri Conservation Department. We know nothing about babies. Call wildlife rehabilitator specializing in squirrel babies and leave message. She never calls back.
Baby is tired, weak and hungry. I am trying hard to not get attached. Baby set up in box for the night with water, black walnuts and cracked acorns. He drinks a little, eats some of the black walnuts and acorns. He misses what only Mom can give him. Wildlife rehabilitator lady still hasn’t called us. We get busy and google. He is doing much better 🙂 He even took a daytrip yesterday with CH to The Mama’s house and shopped for cars. For The Mama. No more things on wheels needed Under the Oaks.
