Wow, that is soo cute. I have always wanted a squirel, and a red one, they look like they have better personalities as pets.
You should be warned they are supposed to be about the most unsuitable pet there is, apparently they chew through everything, which can be not just bad for the house but also their own health, plastic is not good for their tummies and when it contains a houshold voltage copper core it can be instantly fatal.
You should probably ring the vet to ask what you should check for, flees of course but possibly other communicable diseases, rabies?
I think i have read two books on peoples experiences with them, but so long ago, if i remember the titles i will let you have them.
You are very brave indeed, sorry to say how hard it could be looking after them, but I also envy you and your daughter very much indeed
. I hope we see some more shots, my daughter is going mad over this one. I would love to be there right now and see the little critter, so say hi to Gaz too.
