    I posted to one of the Noelle threads as I had questions, and that was where I was told that these surrogate mama squirrels all had head injuries and as a result had zero aggression. You might want to PM the rehabber who has Noelle for more complete information.

    Adult female squirrels that have been used as squirrel nannies in rehab for babies are noted all have mild neuro damage.
    All the same, not recommending though to try that with this or any other male with this condition.

    I shared the link to offer a possible explanation (neuro damage) for the extreme docility observed in this particular squirrel (who is female, by the way, as noted earlier on in this thread).

    Yes, it does sound as though Javarats situation with Noelle is the same as Baby Ruth’s. You might try reaching out to him to talk about it. Let me know if you need his number.

    Baby Ruth is very sweet.

    I would definitely like to talk to Javarat; this is just so unusual. I took pictures of her food dish before and compared to leftovers . She is eating so much better now. She was peeking out of the door of her cube; seems so much more at ease.
    I took her out to just hold and reassure her (and myself) that we can trust each other . Still not a sound ; no aggression. I will definitely talk with Noelle’s person if they are willing

    Thanks for the gender correction Olorin19; sorry I missed the video of Noelle.

    SB, perhaps you may end up with a squirrel nanny of your own.

    Maybe so? But don’t need no more babies right now

    It’s been awhile since I’ve posted; a lot going on these days. But just had a moment to post this pic of “Baby Ruth”… Had a long talk with Javarat about the “Noelle” story… and that’s exactly what we have here (minus the babies ). She has absolutely no fear of us; is exceptionally docile , and now seems to have a very unique role as a “foster mom”; but not for baby squirrels at this time… See my thread in “Off Topic” titled “Homecoming”
