This is a photo of the first squirrel I raised, I found her in the back yard one night and brought her inside, got her warm and fed her. She was my baby, I can’t believe I had the strength to let her go. Once she got old enough tho, I just couldn’t allow myself to keep her as a pet, I wanted to see her run free through the trees. I released her but she stayed close by for quite some time, about a month I’d say..then she finally moved on. She would still sit on my shoulder and eat when I went out to visit her in the forest. I miss her and the male we last had as well..I sure hope they are safe.
