    If you leave the site open on your page, you need to reload each time you return to the page. If you exit the site and then return, click where it says "New Posts" in white at the top of the page (just under our title) and look for the title of your post. If it is there, there is a new reply.

    A photo or two would be very helpful. Until then, is the front leg just sort of tucked up against the body or is it dangling loose?

    You found your way back - good!

    First, the best down and dirty step by step "how do you build a baby squirrel" is on the site where most of us buy the adult food and nursing supplies. If you go to https://www.henryspets.com/ and click where it says "Baby Squirrel Care" on the turquoise bar at the top of the page, it will bring up all kinds of good info on what to keep them in, how much to feed, etc.

    So the paw is tucked away. know it is a little mean, but can you reach in and pinch the toes on that foot just hard enough to see if she reacts to it by pulling away?

    I canít get ahold of the scruff of her neck. I have finally found a vet that has the credentials to look at her and help us.
