On HLN today they were talking about the drought in Tx. They mentioned that even animals are abandoning their nests. They showed a woman who had rescued a baby squirrel too. Wonder if the momma squirrel knocked her nest down on purpose. Either way, we have adopted triplet squirrels.
We are feeding them puppy formula every 3 hours. The little girl has to have 1 brother with her at all times. If she is separated, she starts whining and squealing. She is always on top of her 2 brothers and has her arms and legs wrapped around them.
They won't have their eyes open for a few more weeks. They still don't have hair yet either. After they open their eyes, we are going to build a pen in the back for them, so they can learn to build nests and try to go back to wild life as normally as they can.
