The squirrel could not survive alone – but he was there to help!
One squirrel’s nest was situated on an electric pole that stood next to a man’s home. The baby squirrel had fallen out of the nest, and right into a drain pipe! Amazingly, it was able to pull itself out of that cramped area, but only to find itself lost and alone with no parent around.
Luckily, the kind-hearted man was nearby and had been watching the squirrel. As soon as he noticed the tiny squirrel, he brought him into his house for shelter. He stated in his YouTube video: “I quickly rushed down to pick it up as it could have easily become the surprise breakfast to a stray dog or a cat. I softly cupped it in my hands and brought it to the cosy ambiance of my home.”
The man rinsed the baby squirrel well, but there lies yet another problem. This baby squirrel was so hungry that he could hardly move! It looked extremely stressed and could not manage to muster up enough energy to jump out of the man’s hands. He needed to find a way to feed this tiny creature, but with what?
After doing some research by viewing some YouTube on rodent care, the man figured out a way to nurture the baby squirrel. Using a medical dropper, he fed the animal some milk, bit by bit. The milk would be enough to keep the furry fellow alive until he could find his way back home.
The man also fashioned an old shoe box into a temporary home for the baby squirrel. After a few hours, the little thing had regained his energy and he was up and running. The man then picked him up, and placed him on his shoulder. That was when he noticed the mother squirrel, who had been watching from a distance! As soon as they locked eyes, the mother squirrel started to head towards her child.
His video ends as follows: “I could clearly feel that she was afraid of me but that didn’t stop her from coming close to me. She looked at me intently and then softly touched my hand as if graciously thanking me for saving her baby’s life. I felt a lump in my throat and an indescribable feeling of love and respect for that tiny creature.”
