If you remember, one of our sons found a baby squirrel.Â You can read the original articleÂ http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474977126288
The baby squirrel was about 5 weeks old.Â HisÂ eyes were still closed and he needed us to help him survive.Â We ran off to PetSmart to get what he needed.Â
Â All he wanted to do was eat and sleep.Â And that's what he did.Â His favorite place was in the pocket of one of our T-shirts.Â He soon outgrew the pockets.Â When he was about 10 weeks old, he started drinking only a little bit of his milk.Â Â Time for pecans and peanuts.Â
His favorite food was pecans.Â Oh he would eat the peanuts but only if he had to.Â He also loved carrots.
I can't remember the date when it came time to return him to the wild.Â I do know that it was a wonderful experience for all of us.Â I am so glad that we were able to rescue this little guy.Â I am glad that he lives in our trees in our yard.
