    If you move slowly, I would hope that it wouldn't be hard to capture.
    She's been absent from her typical feeding spots, but I will be putting out fresh water out in case. She's got multiple nests around the neighborhood and doubt that she wants to venture down her nest. I'm not sure if she's been eating/hydrating well, as of 8 days ago; I've only seen her 2 days out of the last 8 days and she only wanted to drink a bit of water - the photos/video was taken on the second day which I saw her. Normally, before 8 days ago, I would consistently see her around the neighborhood almost everyday.

    I don't know much about antibiotics for squirrels/animals at all but I will look into them.

    With the exception of Baytril which is strictly for animals, human antibiotics can be used for squirrels
    with a diluted breakdown to achieve the lower milligrams needed for a squirrel.
