    Default Help please/guidance

    My cat has brought me 2 approx 8/9 week old squirrels. One we find in time ,one broken arm. They appear to be same age and size so I am only assuming that their is a possibility they are siblings. If i take them to a wildlife rehabber in my area they will be euthanized. Which is why I nurse squirrels every single year. I've just never encountered one with injury like this.

    All cat caught squirrels need to be treated with antibiotics as cat saliva is deadly to squirrels. Even a cat scratch can kill baby squirrels.

    What area of Alabama are you located... we may have experienced members in your area that may be able to offer help.
