"about 2 yrs ago, I had a wonderful experiance. My cousin was over, and I found a baby red squirrel, under a tree. it was kinda cold, but it was still alive! We looked everywhere, but no sign of mama or anything else. we figured the mother kicked it out of the nest, either it was sick or because the teeth grew too large and it would die anyway. My cousin and I have rescued lots of wild animals, anywhere from mice to squirrels, baby birds and ducks. We made a nest for it in a shoebox, and fed it warm milk through an eye dropper. We stuck to regular feedings, and even woke extra early to feed him. we named him preston. after awhile, we stopped using rubber gloves. we knew he was no longer dangerous and we knew he had a chance. if he didn't, he would have died much sooner. He began to think of me as his mother and got very excited when feeding time arrived. we even bought him a little cage. he would climb up the sides trying to get to me! then a friend of ours, who knows about wildlife, said we were doing wrong and should immediatly take it to a specialist. and that it should be fed dogs milk instead of cows. well, he had already lived a week, was very active and loved us. he rode in our pocket and i took him everywhere. but we still brought him to a wildlife specailist, and i lost my little buddy. he went to live with more "special needs" squirrels. I think he would have lived on, but we did it anyway. I don't know where preston is today, but i hope he's alive and happy."
