The Squirrels : An Intro

Posted: February 21, 2009 in The Little Critters

Surprise, huh?! Now u guys must be wonder how our small apartment looks like when we have soooo many creatures inside it😛

Our apartment had been visited by a turtle, a bird, fishes too! Some of them were set free.. some of them went to Rainbow Bridge.. and some of them are still live with us.

These are Papai & Pipin. In July 2007, Mr Am and his workers was cleaning the plantation area and cut some trees when they accidentally intruded a nest. Inside of the nest was a mama squirrel with her 2 babies. The mama ran away. Mr Am’s worker placed the nest on the other tree but the mama failed to return. The mama squirrel must be very scared to approach her nest since there was human scent near the nest.

Am took the babies home. This is how they looked like with the eyes still shut.

They was sooo cute when they were babies!

It wasn’t easy to rear the babies. I have to keep them warm but their bodies’ temperature wasn’t high enough. So before each feeding, i have to warmth them with a dry towel and wrapped them.

This is after they opened the eyes

I fed them with Troy Animalac formula. After feeding, the babies will crawled and sneaked into Mr Am’s pocket and slept there. They were sooooooooo cute when they slept!

Both of them are unseparatable. When one is missing, the other one will makes a squaking noise until the missing one shown up.

Unseparatable twins!

Pipin is the smaller one. It was injured from the fall. Sometimes, it will has a temporary paralysis and it has mo move around by dragging its body using front legs. That why i never set them free to their nature habitat.

Some of their grown-up photos..

    Those two are absolutely adorable!

  7. OK, Ok wait, I’m having trouble counting all the animals you have, can I have some help with this? cats, rabbits, chipmunks, squirrels…..

    Wow, so cute. I didn’t know one could rear squirrels as pets. Wow! And your other pets leave them in peace? Do you cage them or let them roam freely inside your apartment?

  9. thefluffies says:

    I let my Squirrels and Chipmunks roam free.. but with supervision, for a few hours. Cant let them free all the time. They have blowed my pc monitor and tv after peed on them.. and a lot of major vandalisme on other electrical appliance too. Very dangerous! 😛

    The cats do not bother about the other animals in the house.. They only chase small things like cockroaches and lizards:mrgreen: (I will spank them if they do so *kidding*)

    nice! i love this blog.. the true animal kingdom ehehe

    can’t wait for a baby elephant ehehehe

    that squirrel does not seem to look like a local want. where did you get it anyway? is it some sort like a special breed?

  11. thefluffies says:

    Mr. Am found then in a palm plantation in Juru😉

    Haha i dont think the government will issue the permit to keep elephant. But i’m thinking about keeping a tiger if the workers find it in the platation😛

  12. TLR will always have the last say…LOL

    :P….

    I am having phobia thinking what will happen if they bite really hard. I believe they have bonded with you and taken you as their mommy!

    You’re a good mommy!

  13. blackie007 says:

    Wah, your cats are very educated and exposed, not like my Blackie di bawah tin Milo, never seen even a dog before.🙂

    I’ve always wanted to keep a tiger as a pet, too! Do give me a shout if you ever got a tiger or 2, I’ll love to help you keep one. 😉

  14. Awwww! Kyoot!
    thanks for visiting our blog!

    Love,
    Tazo

  15. Wow! You are too kind to take care of these cute squirrels.

    Purrs,
