We get quite a few of these a week but I'll just share one. A woman found some baby squirrels and with the help of our website reunited them with their mother. Please, share this so others can reunite baby squirrels. It's our second baby squirrel season and everyone is getting full. Every baby reunited is a baby saved.

"I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU for posting the page about reuniting baby squirrels with their mother.  My cat, Russy, brought one of them to me this morning unhurt...he was so gentle.  I took the baby into a dishtowel and stood, mind racing, what should I do now?  I heard an adult squirrel raising cain over by the fence, so I figured that was the mama, knowing her baby had fallen from the nest.  I went to investigate and found another one, my other cat Pee-Wee was touching its tail and making it squeal.  I picked up that baby and put it in the towel with the other and they cuddled up. Neither baby seemed to be hurt, which was just amazing to me.

My first thought was to take them to the vet...then I thought, No, they're so busy out there...Google the problem.  So I did.  and I clicked on your page and did everything you said to do.  I found a box, rigged it with twine so I could tie it to sturdy branches in a dogwood tree next to the big maple nesting tree.  Then, was the task of getting the babies to turn loose of the towel so I could put them on the leaves I'd put in the box for them.  they held on to
the towel, then they held on to my fingers, and I just teared up...little babies, so vulnerable and trusting..

I left them but have been coming back to check on them about every 2 hours today.  At 3:30 I heard the mama squacking, I figured she'd noticed the box, with the still sleeping babies inside.  I came back inside and when I went back to check on them at 5:00, I got close to the tree and Mama ran about half way up the tree and stopped and looked directly at me.  I stopped, too.  She skittered on up the tree and I went on to check the box again...this time it was empty!  She had taken her babies home!  I was ecstatic!  Thank you so much, again...I would have been devastated if this had turned out any other way.

I'm still blown away by the fact that my two cats that found them chose not to make them breakfast.  My old cat, Russy, has a newfound place in my heart for his kindness and intelligence on knowing what to do to save these babies.  Ya gotta love that..."

Thanks so much for reuniting the baby squirrels!
