Not a Flyer -Baby Albino Squirrel

Postby Mary » Wed Jul 16, 2008 2:00 pm

I just spent the last 3 hours trying to save this baby albino squirrel. I saw the big crows pecking at something and walking around near the woods. I went out and found this poor little baby and brought it in the house. Gave her some meds for cat bite and got some water down her. The cat bite was on the leg and dried. She was so weak and I tried so hard but knew I was too late to really help. Got the heating pad out, even gave her some formula. I held her and kept petting her. One neighbor said he has not seen the albino baby for 2 days. He thinks our other neighbors cat got it and he was right. This was the third day the little one was going through without meds.
I hate cats.

She was so pretty and small.

I am sorry I made a mistake. It was a albino chipmunk. I was writing this when my brother walked in and I always have squirrels on the brain. Sorry for the error.

I'm so sorry for the little chippie. Darn cats! I have 2 & they never step foot outside. Much healthier for them & the wildlife. Why can't people just put a bell around their cat's neck if they're going to allow them to go outside? A friend of mine tried this on her bird killing cat & it was quite effective.

Thanks
I have a indoor cat too.

One Neighbor has tried 3 different times to put bells on them but they get them off everytime.
The other neighbors don't care. Their cats run day and night.

Poor baby. :( At least its last few hours were comfortable as could be.

Belling cats doesn't always work, even if they don't remove the bells. They catch by stealth and can move so that the bells don't ring. Also, it won't protect small babies that cannot get out of the way, even if they do hear them coming. :(

You are right. Bells don't work anyway. Bu the time it does, it is too late.
