    Could you give a size reference? I think it might be a mouse but it still deserves to live.

    Put the baby in a container with soft fleece or T-shirt. Put a heating pad on LOW under half of the container.

    It's tiny, I can measure hm. There's a suirrel calling outside. I put him under that tree. I hope it's Mom. I will go do the squirrel call sounds now

    A measurement would be good. If it’s as small as I think, you wouldn’t expect a baby squirrel to be gray. It would be pink.

    The squirrel might be fussing about the cat.

    Do the front paws have 4 toes or five?

    Not a squirrel, looks like a mouse, I'd take to rehabber. Super easy and fast to raise.

    Top quality custom cage gear, accessories, blankets, toys, & nest boxes.
    Boutique items are fun, unique, and anything but ordinary.

    I haven’t raised a mouse but the basics would be the same.

    Warm the baby.

    Hydrate the baby.

    Homemade Rehydration fluid:
    1 cup warm water
    1 tablespoon honey, molasses, syrup, or sugar
    1 pinch salt

    This would be enough for tonight. Tomorrow you could find rehabber. I have heard they only take 3-4 weeks to rehab to release.
    Again, I haven’t done it so others should sound in.

    I don’t know what type of formula they take... ?

    It sure is a cute baby!
