    So sorry mary r....the worst is when we don't know why. My NR of five years (Owena Owie-Head, in All Squirrels Go to Heaven), died after just a three-day lack of appetite. She was perfect for five years before that, except that she had suffered from seizures her whole life. BUT a seizure didn't kill her -- her liver failed! She ate a perfect diet, was never sick a day in her life. The vet who necropsied her body told me she was perfect.....except for her liver. What the heck? It will haunt me forever. So I get it.

    Default Still looking 4 NR

    Hi my name is Mary. I am still looking for a nonrelease. I am comfortable with neuro, seizure issues, missing limbs , amd I can get my vet cornerstone vet practice to teach me how 2 trim teeth if they have malocussions. Cornerstone vet is located in columbia sc. 30 to 40 min away depending on traffic.

    I am a stay at home retired medic. I am attaching pictures of the cage. This is just the inside one. We have the cage that rolls from henerys healthy pets for the outside as squirrels need at least 1 hour of sun a day for their bodies to unlock the calcium they eat amd to make the calcium usable by their body. There are no kids here.

    The only time my previous squirrel was n a cage is when I was cleaning, ppl at the house for the squirrels amd theor protection, service guy like air condition guys.

    My squirrels may have been spoiled cause they only like the cold, filtered water out the fridge. Theu tolerates the well water but I dont even drink that. I drink Fuji water or deer park. Yes I am spoiled too I reckon but water does have a different taste when it comes to city verses well or different water brands.

    As I was saying only in the cage when I cant watch him or her with undivided attention. I pick them up or let them ride on my shoulders when I put clothes up or go to the bathroom.

    I think this is why ozzy's death put me in a quick spiraled depression cause he literally was a part of me.

    When u see the cage it's just nest box and ramps with a hickory tree stump in the bottom. He liked planking amd sitting to watch the birds outside.

    As far as sleeping in there it was up to him. Doors on the cage top amd bottom remained open so he could take his nap n the nest box or fleece cubes. He usually put him self 2 bed there or he would walk to the bed room,mine, amd put himself to sleep in the old dresser I fixed up 4 him with his favorite fleece in all 6 drawers.

    As I was saying all his fleece cubes, boa, toys and special things his squirrel god mom amd i bought r all packed up. So the pics is of the cage itself.

    I hope some little fuzzer in need of a forever home comes along for you. I know too well what it's like to be left with a void inside following the death of that "special one".

    My darling Scooter, beloved Hami, sweet gentle Simon... YOU are the ones who brought that magic in my life. You've changed the way I see all things around me now and, because of you, I want to be a better person. This is not goodbye, my sweethearts. You be at peace, your work here on earth is done... now you are finally, truly free. Until we meet at the Bridge again, please remember that I will always love you.

    Mary, I am in North GA mountains, near NC border. My sweet girl Robbi has sight issues in left eye. Right eye is perfect. Had a bite mark I'm assuming was from the mom - maybe realized she had sight issue and kicked her out. The head wound is healing nicely and she is eating really well and gaining weight appropriately. I thing she will be a non release. Are you interested?
