"I found my gray squirrel a year and 2 months ago. i was on my way home from school and i saw i dead squirrel laying in the road. well, me being Buddhist, I went over to the deceased squirrel to take it off of the road and bury it. But as i approached it, I saw that there was a little brown ball of fur next to it. When i picked it up, i saw that it was a baby squirrel. It was huddling up near its deceased mother in order to keep warm. So, i took the mother and the baby off of the road and buried the mother and took the little baby home with me. When i got home i called the nearest vet and told them what has happened and i asked them how to take care of it, and you will never guess what they told me to do, they told me to bring it in so that they could youthanize it. I was appauled by what the woman said, so i said, "Just because it is orphaned, and is a baby, you want to kill it?! I thought that you were supposed to help animals!" That was the end of that vet...anyway,i bought baby formula and fed it through a baby bunny bottle, and now ive had her ever since. She has never bittten me or anyone else. In fact, shes sleeping in my one arm right now, so im holding a squirrel in one arm and typing with the other!:)The funny thing is that when she was a baby i could have swore that it was a boy, so i named her Rodney, well, a year later it turns out that its a then she knew her name as Rodney, so it was too late for a new name.Shes a great pet, whoever said that squirrels are wild and will turn against you are NUTS.I love my squirrel more than anything in the world, and makes me happy to see that other people think so too. keep up the good work. by the way, i think im the only one that has a harness for little Rodney, and she is the luckiest squirrel around because she has the run of the house, thank goodness that she scratches at the door when she has to go outside! -Bianca,age 16 NY"
