First heard of his voice at 0700hrs, 8 Sept 2018, before I went for a quick run with my eldest. Thought it was a bird. The nest looks really like a bird’s nest! (We don’t have a ladder to check on the nest). After jog, then off to school for Year 6 extra class. Went back home around noon. The crying voice still there. 😭. Then at 1800hrs, the voice suddenly sounded coming from the ground. It fell off! When we checked it, we saw ‘the bird’ (didnt know it was HE at that moment AND whatttt, a squirrel??? ). I took him in, put it in a box. A bit panicked. How to handle a baby squirrel? Knowledge: zero. Waited for the mom to come back and take the baby, but she didn’t show up. 😫. If I were to time since 7a.m. that morning, his mom had left him for almost 11 hours?
Rushed to the Vet/ Clinic/ Pet Shop. The least we can do is, nursing him. Luckily he had no injury after the fall. So we purchased the milk, nursing bottle & the syringe. Aiyyyaaaa. Quite challenging to feed him at first.
To be continued.
