A full grown male squirrel landed in one of the staff toilets and almost drowned on Saturday the 2nd of May.
I took the liberty of taking the drenched squirrel into my house and gave him a proper blow dry with my hair dryer. The poor little thing didn’t even move and appreciated the warmth coming from this funny looking thing making a loud noise…I then gave him some tender loving care with a scratch on the tummy and behind the ears, wow did he enjoy that!
He again started to get cold , I decided to switch on my warm blanket and get into the bed with the squirrel covering him with my polar fleece. The wild squirrel realised after about 20 minutes that he is definetely not in his usual environment and started shaking like a leaf. I opened the blankets and tried to pick him up, but he took the opportunity to jump out of bed onto my bedside table. I thought, well you seem to be ok now, so I opened my door and he ran like I’ve never seen a squirrel run back into the bush.
I didn’t even get a thank you, but at least I know I did my good deed for the day…
