Roly Poly Squirrel.

by Andy on November 23, 2011

This nearly adult squirrel was brought up on his own so hasn’t had the opportunity to play with other squirrels so I have to help him.

He hasn’t got a name because he isn’t a pet but we love him all the same!!!

Is this the squirrel that came in injured in autumn? If so, I picked it up! Is it male or female I always wondered.

hello Katie.

yes I think this must be the one. He (male) was brought in so late in the year I was a little surprised. As you know he was very poorly and young. Am I right that you found him near a road. I believe he had two wounds on his abdomen.

There were times when I thought he might not make it but as you can see he did great.
Well done and thanks for finding him.

The good news is that he returned to the wild with the other squirrels.

Yes I found him next to the road, and scooped him up in my jacket and put him in a shoe box with some ‘bedding’ and kept him warm.

im so pleased to hear he went back to the wild safely. I always think of him when I walk up that road now.

You did a great job with him, thanks!
