    Nibbles

    Hi Everyone! A friend invited me here this afternoon. On August 3rd a friend of mine found three babies in her yard and only one little boy was still alive. She had no interest in raising him and brought him to me and that is how I became a third generation squirrel nut. My Papa rehabbed quite a few when I was a kid so I've grown up around squirrels all my life but this is the first for me personally. I will add some of the many pics from my phone later. He is quite a character!! And he is 100% responsible for winning over my husband. He said he wants to raise and release even more now. =) He didn't even flinch when I told him how much we've spent on the little fuzzy butt, just said he's lucky he loves him or he'd be eating acorns from the yard!

    Looking forward to getting to know everyone...

    Yes he does!! I have to bring him home after a few hours just to get any work done! 🤦*♀️
    But I wouldnít have it any other way now. My husband and I are placing a squirrel nest box on our back screened porch in hopes he will hang around. Itís going to break me heart to see him go. He has soooo much personality!

    Don't be surprised if he does stick around. They do wander but can find their way back home.
    I have some that have been here for over 6 years

    These little new ones are 89, 100 and 129 grams. They all opened their eyes two weeks ago within days of one another according to primary mom. They seem super underweight to me. Any way to fatten them up and be sure Iím providing the most healthy foster life possible? If one became unwell in my care I would absolutely never forgive myself! They were already on FV 20/50 and Iím continuing that. Receiving appx 6cc per feeding which is right for the average weight and age mostly. It seems they opened their eyes super early based on fur and development. Should I do night feedings dispute presumptive age based on eye opening? I did add a heating blanket to half the bin since she kept her home at 80 Fahrenheit and I keep mine at 70. I noticed they are keeping closer to the heating pad which sadly isnít the type to remain on low but shuts off frequently. Seems I will be waking frequently...

    They still make the heating pads that stay on, I'll have to find the name of mine. Not sure if you get them at Wal-Mart or amazon? I kept mine on heat even in warm weather till they were moved to big cage.
    I know some add yogurt to the formula/goat milk too.
    Ok rehabbers help me out here please
    Oh I don't think you need to do middle of night feedings any more. 11pm till morning should be fine IMHO

    Here is the thread. A few recipes you may want to try.
    Also read through a few post it tells how long before goats milk expires. That said you may not want to use it as your babies are older it may mess up their systems now I was just thinking to add full fat yogurt and maybe the heavy whipping cream.
