My Parents are Awesome

I called my mom earlier today & she told me that I wouldn't believe what my dad had done. Knowing my dad, my first response was "oh no... what?" She told me that my dad was in the yard and found a baby squirrel on the ground that was almost dead. They think it fell out of a tree during a storm. My dad researched online and decided it was dehydrated so they found out how to take care of squirrels and have been nursing this little cutie back to health! She said he is feeling much better today and moving around more. They sent me pictures of him tonight & I had to share them with you! He is adorable!! I think it is so sweet what they are doing for him!


LOVE!!!

he's so cute!
when i was about four i found one on the ground and my mom let me keep him.
we took him to the vet and nursed him some.
sadly, he passed away after about a week.
he was a little too far gone. :(

your parents looks like he's doing great!
all up and about.
how cute. :)

ya! he totally came back for a couple weeks for food and even climbed on our arms. but one day his food bowl was missing [ran off with it??] so he didn't come back so much. i hope he's ok!!
