        So, standing on the back porch when a big gust hits the area (Pacific Northwest, Vancouver, WA area) and I hear this THUD. Something hit in the turtle sandbox (Which doesn't have any sand in it) and so I go to find....

        A baby squirrell.....Out here, you need a permit to rescue them or you can face stiff fines, I call a local "Squirrell Rescue" and they quickly came out..To my surprise, while looking around we found another baby!!

        This was the responders 5th call that day for babies being tossed out or falling or jumping out of the nest!! What made me cringe was the responder picked them out without a seconds hesitation, When I expressed my surprise (Won't they bite?) she said "They're as helpless as can be"

        So off she went with them. While I am saving for a van, I think a bit could find it's way to this responders budget....Such a strange night tonight...The worst part was when she said "Be on the lookout more to possibly appear"

        Oh just great....

        Very odd indeed but how cute to see such a tiny thing.  I hope you don't hear any more thuds!

        That had to be a huge surprise. You're such a good person gene to have them rescued. I certainly hope you don't see anymore.

        That is about one of the cutest stories i have heard in a long time. And what is amazing is the baby was just fine. I have tons of squirrels in my yard and its a merry go round of of the birds wanting the seed, the squirrels wanting the peaches and hazel wanting them all!

        Maybe it is that time of year for baby squirrels to be born. In any case it's a wild story!
