    First found as an injured infant, Atticus was taken into care and nursed back to health. As a maturing juvenile, he was released back to the wild to live out his days in freedom. Even so, he continued to have friendly contact with his surrogate squirrel mommy. At age eight, having been found to be very thin; he was taken into care by his friend, who again provided him comfort and supportive care feeding him by syringe. He was found to have a high level of protein in his urine, which as the attending vet explained, is indicative of kidney failure in older animals. Sadly, two days ago, Atticus passed in the safety, comfort, loving support and presence his lifelong true and faithful friend.

    In the ahead, amidst your sorrow of the passing of your beloved companion Atticus, with whom you shared part of the journey; may the Lord grant you His peace.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss of Atticus, Tgramsey! I believe he recognized how very ill he was and returned from the wild to you; not for a cure (although you tried very conscientiously to find one!) but simply for the love, care, safety, and comfort he knew you would bestow upon him while he was packing for his scamper across the Rainbow Bridge! You did all you could to help him but the greatest gift you gave him was your love! You were there for him his entire life and I know that you were both the better for this! I'm so very thankful that Atticus could spend his last days with you! Thank you for all that you did for your Little Squirrel, Tgramsey! I wish Peace for you!
    RIP Atticus!
    Regards,
    SamtheSquirrel

    Thank you, DF. I haven't had the heart to post about Atticus' passing. And thanks for all your advice and support.
    **btw, Atticus wasn't injured as a baby. He fell during a bad storm. I tried to reunite with his mama, but it didn't take. In turn, he changed my life forever.
