"We found Samantha and her sister and brother in a fallen tree at about 3 weeks old. No mother in sight. They were squacking and calling for her. Their eyes weren't open yet so we rescued them. My husband and I had to drive an hour away to Walmart for formula (puppy formula according to sources on the internet) and Pedialyte to rehydrate them. We kept them warm in a fish tank with a heating pad and fed them with a syringe every 3 hours. The other boy and girl didn't make it but Sammy is now about 7 weeks old and full of mischief. We feed her every 4 hours now and she loves to teethe on brocolli and carrots, cheerios and dog food (again, according to what we found on the internet). Her weight is up to over 5 ounces now from 2 when we found her. She is so cute! She loves to cuddle and have her tummy rubbed. She also loves to play with her whiffle ball and little chew ball with the bell in it. Our plan is to release her at about 14 weeks. But, part of me doesn't want her to go! No one else either, my girls love her and even grandma is getting attached. I don't think its legal here in Florida. We keep telling everyone we are just rehabbing so no one will turn us in."
