Squirrel? 

Nope raccoon that David has named Rocket.   Dexter found this little one outside, apparently fallen from the next.  It was in the middle of the day, so we brought it inside to warm up until night fall.  

We did follow the instructions as to try to get her back to her Mom. We also knew not to feed or give the any water.  David found out that warming uncooked rice in a sock for 30 seconds in a microwave would keep them warm for a longer period of time. 

Abby was not happy about the little one in the house at all.

So it turned out that Rocket was a Rosie.  Mom never did come back to get them.  After a long night, and lots of inside warming time, and outside for Mom to find them time.  David took them to the Wildlife Refuge on first thing Monday morning.  

David contacted the refuge on Thursday morning to check on them.  Rocket ended up passing after a couple of hours after David had dropped them off.  But Rosie is thriving!  Our hearts are both happy and sad.

Blessings!
