"Hi everyone! I live in right outside Houston, Texas, and last year after Hurricane Ike, my husband found our little Rainy lying on the ground. It was about 10 days after the hurricane, so we were surprised to see another squirrel. He thought she was dead, but she was still breathing. I fed her round the clock every 2 hours by hand. Her eyes wer still closed and her little ears still tufted. She has just gotten fur, so we think she was probably about 7-10 days if that old. She is over 1 year old now and happy as a lark! I was brought up to believe that if you interrupt natures normal course, you are responsible for that animal until the end of it's life. (if it can't be released again). Everything I read stated not to release her since she was less than 6 months old by November. So Rainy has lived with us for over a year. She is peeking out of my shirt as I type. I spend 2-3 hours a night with her, she has a custom, 8ft x 4 ft x 3 ft cage, complete with branches, perches, bells, shelves, hammocks and fleece pouches I made for her to snuggle and stash stuff in:) If I could have released her I would have, but since we were advised not to, I don't think I could now. She is a huge part of my life and I could not imagine my life without her."
