    From the picture the one ear looked good. Check around any oriface, eyes ears mouth anus or wounds, lay the fur back and look close to the skin. Have you seen her move/use her body at all? Usually staying that curled up can be more of a sign of being scared. Like Step said, if she has responses to the pinching of toes, that is a good sign. Does she feel boney?

    Sometimes when they have been out for awhile they get really Ďdepressedí. Thank you for helping this little baby. She would not have made it this long without you.

    Cool, thanks for the guidelines on checking, Iíll do that around lunchtime. I havenít seen her use the back legs, when she is determined to hide away or eat, she uses only her front legs. She does feel boney, especially on her back-maybe thatís normal for squirrels? Her belly looks good, not bloated, not too skinny either. Itís a little stressful for me since Iím at work. I fed her at 6am and I wonít be back home until close to noon. Hopefully that isnít too rough on her system.
