In that moment i just wanted to lie down and relax. After such a hectic day, all I could think of was to get a good sleep.
Suddenly i heard loud cries. I thought there might be a puppy somewhere around (because puppies are more on my mind than any other human or animal). Much to my surprise, i saw an infant baby squirrel lying down on the sidewalk. It was really tiny with its eyes still closed, it was crying so loud that i couldn’t bear to see it like that. At first i was a little doubtful about what to do with it (i had never seen something like this before).
On the inside I was really scared (anxious) about it (because honestly, it looked like an alien). But still with all the fear i couldn’t even for a second see it like that, and so I picked it up and with my shaky hands, tried to calm it down.
I quickly went home. Mumma was too scared at first but then she helped me clean it and give it a small space for lying down. I cleaned it (which was really diffucult, thanks to my anxiety).
Then we gave it some milk with a syringe. And after some time it finally went to sleep!
That was the moment i decided that i will keep it till it grows fully (mumma was super supportive).
Now, it has been 2 days since it came home and it feels so good to be able to help something live, in return of which it has given me the love that i probably needed.
P.S. I have used it for the baby squirrel because I’m not very sure of the gender.
Here’s its picture 🙂
