While on holiday, his finders found him by the side of the road. It is unclear how he got there. Did his mother drop him when relocating to another nest? Was he grabbed by a bird for a snack and then dropped? He was too small to have left the nest himself, so it is a mystery.
His mother might have come back for him, but his finder had no idea what to do, so she picked him up, not even knowing what he was, and brought him back to New York. After a few days she realized that he probably needed special help and she found Wild Tings.
He arrived and was no more than 10days old, and had been with her for several days. He is very energetic and has found his little squeak. It is amazing how strong he is after such a dramatic first week of life!
Hopefully he will do well. It is hard to raise them when they are so small, but he is gaining grams every day. And do you see his whiskers just beginning to come in??
By the way, any idea what kind of animal he is??
