I found a baby squirrel in my back yard and moved it to my deck with a baby gate (to keep away from cats) in hopes that the mother would come find it. She must have been looking for him, because within 10 minutes, she started scoping out the area and planning her rescue. Though the baby does not look very active, I think he is scared because he seemed healthy but scared. I apologize for the dog barking (so reduce the volume if using headphones or if you have a dog around that might go crazy!!). Since I was filming with my phone in my hand, there was no option to move my dog and be able to keep filming. Thanks for watching!
A deer doe abandoned one of her twin fawns, the fawn had injured leg and could not keep up with the mother. I do not support keeping wild animals as a pets, but this was special situation. The baby deer was healed and released back to her real mother. Update: The doe and two her fawns is still around, we seen them through the summer and the autumn. Here is follow up video one year after release: https://youtu.be/GvRcix5-qVs Here is few videos how she learn to drink milk and bathing: https://youtu.be/-KNY_UXHc44 https://youtu.be/dgNJ05cRXdo I am thankful for every single person who liked, shared and left a comment. I didn't expect this story to become so popular. I am sure that any of us with a little bit of a conscience about our existence, with love for the nature and animals would do the same.

Please read the description after watching the video to fully understand what was happening and the predicament I was in. I'm an inventive guy and I had an idea to build a squirrel proof bird feeder but before I did that, I had to find out one thing about squirrels and that was what is the smallest hole they would attempt to go through to get to food. I searched google and found no information. I decided the only way was to do a small scale experiment on my own to find out. There are about 7 squirrels in my neighbourhood which gave me a good group of friendly volunteers. Before we go any further, I love squirrels and have no issues with them and I feed them daily and love watching them in my yard. Many people hate squirrels because they can be very destructive in attics and chew wiring which can be very costly and they make a sport of killing them. I have a few videos where I show how to catch them without harming them if re-location is an option. The only thing they have done is chew open many of my bird feeders hence the reason for building a squirrel proof bird feeder. I decided to place a large glass jar outside my living room window for them to go into to get a small snack. The jar opening was 3" (7.5cm) without the lid attached, so what I did was I reduced the size of the opening by 1/4" (6mm) each day with a progressively smaller ring. I took time to make sure each ring was sanded smooth, with no sharp edges, so the squirrels wouldn't be injured in any way. I thought beforehand that they'd try to get in and if they couldn't, they'd just leave. I made sure of a few things while doing this experiment. 1) The jar was never left unattended. 2) I was steps away (I was on the other side of the glass window). The footage totally surprised me! They never give up!! I found it interesting that even though they struggled to get to the food, and had a hard time getting out, they kept coming back for more again and again day after day!! This is why they've survived millions of years. As the squirrel was having a hard time getting out, I realized that if I unscrewed the lid, he would then be running around with a lid around it's waist! That wasn't an option. Second option, If I tried to pull him out, it would most certainly bite a large chunk of my finger off. They have very powerful teeth and jaws. After consideration, I knew that if it got in, it would get out. AS you can see in the video, I was there to try to figure out what to do.I had to wait it out.

"Pregnant pitbull refuses to give birth: After 1 look at the ultrasound, the vet understands why" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlZg9H1B5IQ --~-- There’s a reason why we say that dogs are a man’s best friend. But maybe we should also say that dogs are a baby’s best friend. When I was little, I had a dog and she and I were best friends. Even now I have a lot of great memories of when I was little and we would play together. So when I saw this cute video, I just had to share it here.

It was around 9 in the morning. I was enjoying a cup of tea on my terrace. Just out of sheer curiosity I peeked over my terrace onto the street only to find a tiny baby squirrel lying on the main door of my house. I quickly rushed down to pick it up as it could have easily become the surprise breakfast to a stray dog or a cat. I softly cupped it in my hands and brought it to the cosy ambiance of my home. I cleaned it dry with a soft cloth as it had fallen into the drain from its nest, which perched on the electric pole that stands in front of my house. I could only wonder how much this tiny creature must have struggled to come out of that filthy drain. Despite its feeble size, the baby appeared to be a true fighter. It looked extremely stressed and could not muster up enough energy to jump out of my hands. And after a few minutes, it quietly surrendered itself as somewhere deep inside it knew it was in safe hands.
I always wanted to have a squirrel as a pet, however, it is not easy to have one as they are extremely shy creatures. Being a photographer by profession, I am never away from my camera. And as luck would have it, I now had a wonderful opportunity of capturing some heart-warming pictures of this beautiful baby squirrel, whom I was happily visualising as my prospective squirrel friend.
I went to the medical store and bought a dropper so that I could feed the baby some milk. At such times, YouTube comes handy, as I quickly watched some videos on how to feed a baby squirrel and learnt some easy-peasy tricks. I fed it some milk through the dropper which it thoroughly relished. Meanwhile, I shared some of its pictures with my friends, introducing it as my newfound love of my life. They suggested some really quirky names for the baby from Gillu and Hogard to Munna Mushtaq and Brij Pal Gotiya. While some wanted to adopt it, a few wished if it could accompany them on a trip. In no matter of time, it had certainly become quite popular amongst my friends. J
To make it feel more at home, I created a tiny home out of a shoe box, in which I had laid out some cotton and had tenderly placed the baby on it. I made sure to check its condition every now and then while feeding it milk at regular intervals. I was glad that it was responding well and that it now felt comfortable and safe in my company. After a few hours, I noticed it had started playing inside the box while constantly chattering and gathering all its energy back. I took it out of the shoe box and it fearlessly started jumping on my arms and shoulders as if inspecting me and extending a hand of friendship towards me. We clicked some amazing selfies together and I must say it posed like a seasoned model. :D
It had barely come down from my shoulders when I noticed a squirrel approaching towards me. I quickly understood that it was the mother of this cute little baby. I could clearly feel that she was afraid of me but that didn’t stop her from coming close to me. She looked at me intently and then softly touched my hand as if graciously thanking me for saving her baby’s life. I felt a lump in my throat and an indescribable feeling of love and respect for that tiny creature. She checked her baby and kissed her zillion times. It was truly an incredible sight! After showering oodles of love on her baby, the squirrel turned towards me and touched me again and then quietly picked her baby in her mouth and disappeared. Tears trickled down my cheeks experiencing such an amazing moment of unconditional love between a mother and a child. I am so pleased with myself that I could manage to capture this incredible moment in my camera, which would forever hold a special place in my heart. I feel blessed to have been able to save the life of that tiny creature who with its mother reminded me of some really important virtues of lives that we all know of but often forget to practice, sometimes unknowingly and sometimes, perhaps deliberately.
Here is the link to my photography pages, where you can check a few images that I had clicked of the mother and the baby: https://www.facebook.com/ShutterbugKevin/photos/a.580973651987250.1073741837.105511642866789/1366120356805905/?type=3&theater
