My baby arrives this weekend!

Postby Laurak » Tue Oct 25, 2011 2:11 pm

Got a call from the breeder (Keystone Exotics) and I should be driving to get my little squirrel bundle of joy this Sunday! I'm so excited since my fiance and I have been waiting for 10 months for the little critter to be born :)

We'll have to drive pretty far, about 4 to 5 hours each way, to pick up the little guy. Anyone have any advice on car rides for the squirrel? I'd hate to have our first experience with the squirrel be a bad one for him/her. I don't know if flyers handle car rides too well, especially if they're young.

Thanks!

She will handle it well ... remember, they are used to swaying in tree tops.

I would maybe reccomend a bonding pouch for part of the trip! CONGRATS

She's here! Meet Momo, in all her adorableness!

She doesn't care for the pouch so much, but she loves sleeves and pockets :)

Momo is still little, so she's on applesauce, oatmeal, and yogurt, but she loves it when I give her bits of veggies and half cracked seeds. It's amazing how their instinct to open seeds kicks in so young.
