Orphaned Red Squirrels
August 8, 2009 – this young red squirrel male came to us with early stages of pneumonia. He was orphaned when his mom fell out of a tree and didn’t return to him within 24 hours. With his bleak condition we weren’t sure that he would make it, but he ended up responding well to treatment. It’s a treat to watch him grow and mature every day.
August 17, 2009 – the male red squirrel is slowly transitioning to solid food and is energetically bouncing around his cage. Soon it will be time for a larger one.
August 19, 2009 – the red squirrel has doubled in weight in 10 days! Impressive!
August 24, 2009 – we found another red squirrel that is the same age as this one, so with careful monitoring we were able to put them together.
September 7, 2009 – The two red squirrels were finally put into a large enclosure. They were very excited and curious about their new surroundings.
September 25, 2009 – The two red squirrels have finally been released in a forest.
