Pregnant or Fat?

Which is it? Nickname has been "Mr. Chunky". Starting to think it may not be a Mister after all.

Adorable Squirrel Eating

She’s looking pretty chunky so I think I’ll have to hold off on the nuts (I very rarely give peanuts, she just happens to be having one in this video), but she and her sisters rarely eat vegetables now! Could it be from the excitement of being released just two days ago, and wanting to hide as many nuts as possible? Because before their release, they were obsessed with mushrooms and cauliflower! Either way, I’ll hold off on the nuts. 😉

Neighbors found this little fella curled up on their porch

We sat him around multiple areas including the original spot and nearby trees playing the ‘distressed baby squirrel call’ on YouTube to no avail ☹️ He’s currently curled up in a ball in his box with some warm rice in a sock under the towel. It looks like a small space in this photo, but he’s got plenty of room to move around and away from the heat if he needs.

I went through as many protocols as I could from the pinned post but no luck. I tried encouraging him to climb on a few trees but he wouldn’t stick. I tried to let him run on the ground, but he just sat there and looked up at me… and then curled up in a ball.

I called around to multiple rescues, unfortunately none of them were open/no one answered.. so I’m going to try again tomorrow morning. However, I want this guy to make it through the night 😢

I have not fed him or given him any fluids. I do have experience hand feeding birds and understand certain positioning of syringes to avoid aspiration and dosing based on weight - even though birds are a completely different animal, is it worth me following a guide to deliver him hydration? I am not going to try to feed him.

I’m just confused because he seems relatively well groomed and has nice fur with no visible injuries/infections/bugs on him but he very lethargic. He opens his eyes as if he is alert and then falls right back asleep in his ball. I’m not sure if this is a survival instinct for him or if he is sick.

I know this is a crazy long post but I tried to do as much research as I could and this guy is just too damn cute and I want every animal to have a chance at surviving 😞 plus I don’t want to leave alone outside during the night because we have a feral cat colony in our neighborhood lol

Any advice is appreciated 🐿️🤎

Baby squirrels saved!

We had a tarp over the roof of my kid’s treehouse and went to take it off. We noticed a pile of leaves collected underneath and unfurled it slowly thinking they’d just accumulated, but suddenly five little writhing things fell out. One held onto the tarp cord and squealed for its mama. I’m guessing they were about four weeks old because they had fur but their eyes were still closed. We quickly put them into a box with all the leaves they had been in and put the box right by the treehouse and gave mama a chance to come back.

A few hours later we saw mama inspecting the treehouse looking confused. She couldn’t find the box. I knew she’d persist so I moved the box inside the treehouse where she’d been investigating and played some baby squirrel noises from my phone for a minute, then left. She came back about 20 minutes later and then we saw her leave with a baby in her mouth and we about cried, my kid jumped up and down with joy.

Later that evening we saw her roaming around the treehouse but not going for the box but stuffing her cheeks with food. She left and I went to inspect the box—no babies left! Good mama got them to safety and they all lived happily ever after.
