Backyard Rescue

I was in my kitchen and I
heard a baby squirrel squealing.
Out my kitchen window
I could see a baby squirrel trying to climb the Oak Tree
but, he kept falling. I ran outside and scooped him up
before something not so nice did. It rained the rest
of the afternoon so, in the morning I'll take him outside to see if mama is
looking for him. If she's not, I will take him to the
wildlife rescue center.

Oh, how cute, and you care for even the smallest and most overlooked of God's creatures. I see you even had a bottle!

What a bundle you have there! Sometimes when they fall out their mom's come get them. That has been my experience. Meanwhile it reminds me of the kittens we had in the past that were bottle fed. Guess you will be up at all hours with this one?

What a cute little one, he looks happy enough to be out of the rain. I'm so glad you were there to rescue him before something bad happened.

That tail is beautiful. About six to eight weeks old?

I see the bottle too - funny one has what they need at the time. I was amazed at how little he was and how long his tail was in comparison! You are sweet.
