Yesterday I heard a baby squirrel squeaking in my soffits. Not a new thing, every year a squirrel dislocates a section of it and decides to have her babies there. I found the poor little baby dead, halfway hanging out of the hole this morning :(
So tonight when I heard another little squeak I decided to take action. I found Squeaky-poo in the soffit. Poor little guy's skin was just hanging on him and he was covered over in fleas. I thought about it for awhile and decided the mom wasn't there anymore or she wouldn't of let the other die (I think it starved). Squeaky-poo has had two baby shampoo baths (which by the way, kill fleas) and has had half a nurser of sugar water. He really liked the warm water and he really likes being clean! He'd just streeeetch out when I wave the hair dryer over him.
He's curled up in a towel right now snoozing away. I think he likes being clean and warm :) I have a message in with a wildlife rehab center, if I can keep him going tonight hopefully I'll be able to run him out there tomorrow. He'll learn how to be a squirrel there...let's hope the others don't make fun of him for smelling so good :)
Oh and I learned something valuable today that I feel I need to share. When purchasing a sofa, do not buy an Ashley brand. They use a piece of pressed sawdust on the front bottom portion and attach the springs to it. Everyone else uses that board as a deco piece, it's part of the structure of an Ashley one. Ask me how I know? Mine broke last year and they put in metal plates and screwed it together. It broke on the other side and they wouldn't even repair it. So I got a $500 store credit and picked out a new one today. I can't remember who made it but it's a little darker and the fabric is thicker. I will post pictures when it comes :)
