Thread: Do squirrels "yawn"? Is it normal to yawn, or does it indicate a problem?

    Default Do squirrels "yawn"? Is it normal to yawn, or does it indicate a problem?

    Also, they do not seem to like the powdered formula. I mixed it 1 part formula to 2 parts water per the directions, but they both would barely eat it
    Has anyone else noticed a preference of premixed over powdered?

    In mid-life women no longer have upper arms, we have wing spans.
    We are no longer women in sleeveless shirts, we are flying squirrels in drag.

    Others have noticed their squirrels refusing formula for a while when switching from liquid to powder. They will adjust. Make sure it is WARM enough. Try feeding it a bit warmer.

    I was never a morning person, but now I love waking up and watching Scooby. She yawns and stretches over and over. It's THE cutest thing ever.

    As a recipient of some first hand advice from 4skwerlz, et.al....the warmth DOES make a difference. Make sure the formula is really warm, almost HOT.
    Good Luck. We are all routing for you!

    ADORABLE HAPPY PICTURES!!

    Some of my fondest Buddy memories are of him just waking up and coming out of his nest for a stretch and a yawn --- too cute! I really missed that once he was released. But one day I happened to be outside when one of the wild squirrels woke up from a midday siesta and was treated to a lovely stetch-and-yawn!!

    Yawning, and the "yucky" move (arms outstretched, drop the offending piece of food) have to be what makes me LOVE squirrels so much!!!

    bahhahha. sometimes I give Stubby a pecan just to see him go "Plehh" and open his mouth to let it fall. lol.
    My favorite is when my wilds hang from their toes from the tree and sttttreetchhh their whole body out and yawn. wish I could do that. looks delicious.

    i am so much more than a body.

    every moment is an opportunity to begin recovery.

    Try adding a 1/2 part of vanilla organic yogurt to your formula. It will make the taste more to their liking.
