Even though I had no intention of adopting an orphaned squirrel, my syringe forced me to feed the squirrel puppy formula at 2 a.m.
A newborn squirrel searching for its mother clawed and chattered my basement office windows.
When I saw it veer towards the road, I raced as fast as I could to keep it off the road.
I tried to lead the animal back to its garden with my feet. The animal hopped onto my sandal and stayed there for a long time. My adoption was finished.

I attempted to entice her mother using internet suggestions, but she did not respond. It was our obligation to adopt it and find it a good home.
It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a baby squirrel.
I had never anticipated squirrels to have such a sweet and welcoming disposition.
Oh, and squirrels are pretty clingy!
It’s incredible how quickly they can scale trees. I can’t see their grip, but Little Twig was stuck to us like velcro, creeping up our clothes in quest of warmth.
