    Can you share more about the squirrels background. You mentioned a leg injury, how does the injury impact the squirrels.

    Pictures always help when trying to re-home a squirrel... and any other information that can be shared. The more info the better.

    I have the squirrel for 6 years now. I found her when she fell from her nest, few feet down to the
    ground. She couldn’t eat on her own at that time and needed to be fed bottle as she was so young. I
    noticed that she had some issues with her left paw. I took her to vet where she had x-ray done. X-ray
    showed that all the bones are ok but there must have been either muscle or nerve damage as she
    always keeps that paw close to her. I couldn’t give her away to the Wildlife rescue service as they told
    me they were already at the limits of their capacity and the vet said she would not survive in the wild
    due to the issues with her paw. Before I taught Basia (Little Barbara) to eat nuts, I took her to vet and
    had her teeth trimmed few times. The vet recommended not to vaccinate Basia as she has no contact
    with any other squirrels or other animals. Besides that paw, she has no other health issues. She eats
    nuts which she cracks open herself. She also eats other variety of food – apples, mangoes, cherries,
    pears, almonds, tomatoes, strawberries, fresh twigs from the garden. Everything she likes. She has a big
    cage that is connected to other cage and she moves between them as she pleases. Often I open the cage
    and she never destroyed anything in the room she is located, even though I leave her by herself for
    hours at a time. She misplaces some item of course… I need to find Basia a new and good home because
    this year I am moving to Europe and I cannot take her with me as regulations do not allow so.

    Does she cuddle? Is she affectionate? Does she groom you? Does she allow you to handle her? Does she climb on you? Is she able to climb?

    Do her teeth have to be trimmed or do they wear down properly on their own?
