This is a great website. I have enjoyed reading everyone's comments about their pet squirrel or nursing a baby squirrel to life. We found our squirrel, Lucky, last Thursday. We were in a parking lot and as I was stepping down from the curb I noticed this tiny little guy. It's super hot out and I was surprised he was alive and hadn't been cooked on the asphalt. We waited around for the mother, but she did not come. And I felt too bad leaving him there when someone could run him over or step on him. We have since taken him home and fed him 3.25% milk mixed with water. So far he's going to the bathroom and eating out of the eye dropper. We keep him in a box with pillow cases and toilet paper is bedding. I read that his nails would get stuck in a towel if we used that. He is so young his eyes are shut and there is no fur on him. I estimate he's maybe 10 days. He is getting more active and now hangs on to your finger when you are feeding him. I am glad we found him, or he would be dead, fingers crossed that he makes it.

    I just read your post and even though it's been over 7 months ago, I wonder if you still have 'Lucky'? I've been raising a squirrel for the last month and it's been a joy and wondered how it's going:)

I have had my 2 female gerbils for 3 months and they have got along fine. I got them together so I didn't think there would be any problems, but just tonight when I put them back from their run around my room they started chasing each other really fast around the cage. One of them was trying to get away from the other one and kept trying to escape. I think there was biting but I'm not sure. I don't know what to do or how serious the fighting is, please help?

What's the difference between the hotot rabbit and the Netherland dwarf they look a lot a like

    A good indication is to look at the eyes. The eyes of the Dwarf Hotot look like they are wearing makeup. The eyes are surrounded with a thin band of black fur, known as 'eyebands' by rabbit judges. They are usually all white in body color, which helps make the eyebands stand out., though brown and black are accepted colors as well.  On Netherland Dwarf rabbits these eyebands are not found, and these rabbits also commonly found in a couple dozen different body colors.

    It could be the 'sloppy' eating which is causing the matting, but yeah, it could also be other things like the environment or the food. You could try visiting the Squirrel Board as it is a good forum where you may be able to help with your specific questions. Good luck!

Do you need a little cage, hut, house or anything? And if you do, what size, how big? And also please tell me if you know any breeders, if possible in west sussex please, that will be the best. I need a lot of information because I am a 9 yr old girl and I just love animals and nature, also I would like a pet for easter (1st april 2013). Any information would be very nice. Thanks for reading (;

Do rabbits bite? What type rabbits are the best to be handled as pets?

    Yes rabbits can bite. Especially if they are not handled regularly from the time they are babies. If you get a baby rabbit and handle him often he will more than likely grow up to be docile and friendly and you should have few, if any, problems with your rabbit biting. This is true of all rabbits, however some breeds are better for beginners and children because they don't get as large and sometimes have more gentle personalities. Some of these include the Mini-Lop Rabbit, the American Fuzzy Lop Rabbit, and the Dutch Rabbit.
