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.
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.
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.
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.
