I was jogging this evening and came across a young gray squirrel in the road. It seemed quite weak and confused, and being the empathetic person I am, I had to at least move it off the road to make sure it wouldn't get hit by a car (I wondered if it had been grazed by one, but it didn't show signs of trauma, only potentially in shock). When I went close to it, it reached out for me and seem to want me to hold it. I picked it up and moved it to the side of the road but stood there in contemplation of what I should do. Should I leave it? This thread wouldn't exist if I did. I brought it home and fed it a bit of carrot, homemade whole wheat bread and gave it some water. It seemed fairly sedentary but would climb all over me if given the chance. It's covered in hair but its tail isn't bushy yet. It's eyes are open and it's close to the size of an adult red squirrel. It's teeth are coming out and it was quite capable of chewing a carrot. It started to fall asleep on me and now it's outside in a box with a towel inside to keep it warm. It seems as though it may still want to be nursed. Advice?edit on 26-5-2011 by OrganicAnagram33 because: Addition
