    Default Mr squirrel

    Hi all first want to say I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and happy New Years. So now to this precious boy. He was hit by a car and pretty much healed from it but I am 99%sure it left him blind. So that being said he needs a forever home to save his life. If I can’t find someone to take him I will have no choice but to uthanize. I am in soo much distress over this because he is fine otherwise. I can not keep him I have no room for another and can’t afford it. So if anyone can help save him or know someone close by please let me know. I am in South Carolina. He is I’m guessing close to a yr old and he has chattered and flickers his tail but has not tried to bite. I am guessing from fear. So please can anyone help save his life. I call him mr squirrel more so mr.

    He's precious, he looks like he'd make someone a good cuddle buddy.
    I hope he can be placed.

    Has his eyes/sight been checked out?

    is definitely blind. Did the light test and touch tested. No dialation at all. I wish soo much I could afford him cause I’m already in love with him but I can’t money here is way right. Danger of being put down is off table I can’t do that to him unless he was hurting and could not eat or drink on his own and as u see he can. Here is a pic of him eating henry block. He loves them soo much. I will be making a vet appointment after next week but I know what she is going to say. And well I can’t do it. He isn’t mean or frail or in pain healthy other than eyes.

I was feeding hope and saying mr mr and he come out found my voice and peed out. Yep he did. Could have been worse cause he is on top of hopes cage. He could have hit me between the eyes. Lol so I guess if I’m going to call his name I need to feed him 1st. Lol

    He loves carrots. My friend Tara came for a visit yesterday and wrangled him down lol she is amazing she has only raised 1 squirrel but she handled him like a pro. He did try to bit but she said he don’t bit hard. And then he laid in her arms and she rubbed him all over. And he was loving it. I wanna do that with him but I am scared we will bond and we should not with me looking for him a forever home. I may also be wrong about his age too looking at his teeth yesterday he is probably about 6 months. But hey who’s counting right he is a beautiful boyName:  image.jpg

    Well Mr squirrel is home and back in his cage. So the verdic is he can’t see. He can how ever she some light. This is through the bottom of eyes. He also has a broken insizer. She said it will grow out and correct itself. She is thinking his retinas are pulled loose and that is what is wrong with his eyes and she also said he is not in any pain she suspected he may have Nero issue but not bad. She said he needs time to see how much he can heal from it. Definitely not releasable. I will be giving him the time he needs and still looking for a forever home.

    Well Mr squirrel is doing great. I am going to start trying to work with him to tame home to be held. I can pet him but holding is a different story lol he freaks out some. So any input on getting him not scared of being held would be a great help.
