Our latest homesteading adventure was rehabbing this little squirrel friend for the past 2 weeks! Years ago, we rehabbed one that required bottle feeding and months of growing and then reintroducing him to the wild, which was quite the experience!
This little fighter just needed to get some strength back and heal after we found her shell shocked and extremely weak and lethargic. Her siblings were already dead when we found her, so we patched her up, gave her a safe place to grow a bit and now she’s been placed in what we hope is a safe place on the homestead! Now it’s up to her and Mother Nature!
Also, she was a biting, angry, feisty little tornado when we released her yesterday, which was actually such a wonderful thing to see, versus the limp, non mobile little mop we met two weeks ago! Godspeed, little squirrel!!!
