I’m so very sad and upset right now. While I was at work, hub was finally able to catch the poor squirrel and bring him outside. Only problem, he can’t walk.. both of his back legs are broken or something cause he’s crawling and isn’t moving his lower body. This is just so so sad. My heart is breaking. I’m scared his paralyzed. Only good thing, he’s not crying so I don’t think he’s in a lot of pain, at least I hope he isn’t.
Hub had put him outside by the trees but then called me to say he wasn’t moving so I told him to get the cage we have ready and bring him back inside so we have him in a cage right now. He was totally fine yesterday morning when I tried to get him out so he must have tried to climb the stove pipe and fell and hurt himself which looks pretty bad. I mean, if he’d have problem with one leg but it seems to be his whole lower body. There’s no blood or anything so I don’t know. I want to take him to the vet but we don’t have the money for that. I really don’t know what to do. I know I wanted to keep him very badly but not this way.
I just remembered that I wanted to email a vet or two to see what they would have to say. I just feel so terrible for the poor thing and it’s a baby too.
Blah! I had told myself this morning that I would be going to bed early tonight cause I was exhausted but looks like it’s not happening. I have a feeling I will have a hard time sleeping cause I keep wanting to go check on him to make sure he’s okay. I’m just glad he’s out of the stove but I just wish very hard that he will make it and be okay.
I need to stop writing or I will just end up crying. I’m in bed but I think I will go use my laptop and email a few vets to see what I can do for the lil fella.
