    She's precious. So glad that she is feeling better.
    Why did they all have baths?

    They seem to get dirty after a few days. I assumed it's bc they pee/poop in their beds sometimes so I just put them in a warm bath to wash it off every now and then. Is that OK to do? I judt use water, no soap or anything

    Very good question. Yes, and it might be wise to use blue Dawn dish detergent as soap (the original Dawn) which is what I believe most people use on squirrels, if possible. To properly qualify this, I'm not entirely sure that the type of soap matters, but it might, so I thought I'd pass along that information.

    And to my understanding, it might be very important, very important, to keep water away from the nose and mouth. Squirrels are extremely sensitive to inhaled water which often causes terrible cases of pneumonia. If you accidentally get water in that area and then hear clicking or rattling, make sure to let us know. If it were me, I would not get water anywhere near the head.

    All that being said, I welcome any of the actual rehabbers to correct any of this information. If they do, I might learn something new as well. I'm not a rehabber but just a long time member.

    Oh yeah, I only ever put them in up to their chest, never their head. Warm water seems to do the job, so I don't really need soap. But if doing a warm water bath is bad for some reason someone let me know
