Darby the Squirrel

Last Wednesday night Caleb and I found a cute little baby squirrel lying on the ground. She looked like she was hurt, she could move, but not very well. We figured that she had probably fallen out of the tree above, from her nest. The lowest branch was at least 30 feet up. So we decided to pick her up and take care of her until we could call someone to come pick her up and try to help her get better. The next day, we gave her some water a few times. Then the city animal helps came by and picked her up. They said she might go into the Heard Craig Museum.

This is what she looked like when we first found her.

Darby managed to scoot herself out onto the side-walk

Isn't she so cute?!

She liked to curl up into a ball

Poor Darby, did she survive?

Hey Justin,

Yes, Darby survived as long as we had her. But we don't know if she's still alive now. We should check. :)
