    Default Just found a 6 weekish squirrel on the front lawn

    I am already taking care of a 45-week-old baby and today while watering the grass, another 6-week-old looking squirrel was sitting in the grass not moving much. I picked her up and she was super skinny and dehydrated. I took her in and gave her a home mix Pedialyte of 2 ml every 15 min for an hour and she guzzled it down. Two hours later I gave her 5ml of Esbilac and she is much plumper and active now. My question is, should I take her in as well or should I put her back and see if she tries to go back to a nest? If I keep her, does she need warmth, help going to the bathroom, and can I put her in a cage with the other 4-week-old baby? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    She is adorable. Make sure she is completely rehydrated before you start giving her formula.

    I would pop her in with the other baby and watch closely - they will decide if they can cohabitate.
