I have a pet squirrelSammy, that I have had since he was 5 weeks old. My cat brought him and laid him down at my husbands feet. His eyes were not open yet and we weren't really sure if he was even a squirrel. But anyway he has been happy and healthy for 9 years now until this morning he woke up acting strange. Not wanting to play or eat. I noticed that he had not peed in his usual pee spot in his cage. As of now he still hasn't peed. So I belive he is stopped up and I don't know what to do for him. Could someone please let me know, I am really worried about my little guy. Thanks

    So sorry to hear about Sammy. At first I thought, maybe its age, but as they can live over 20 years in captivity, that's not it. You may want to take it to a vet that specializes in rodents. But I also found this site WildAgain Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc., that has some information about the digestive aspects of  squirrels. They also have several resources and some contact information. Starting there, you may be able to get some good suggestions.

    I really hope Roxie came home safe... We've been there;). My husband had to climb the tree and get her at around that age When he was trying to hand her to me  I couldn't help him. I was froze. Fro. Watching the blood run down his face:)... She accidentally scratched him as she jumped onto his shoulder.We recently did a slow release..she was 13 months old...she has built her. Nest across from our fence... She came back and forth for 2 1/2 months now she's out on her own ... We worry everynite.  I feel your pain anyway Hope she's ok:) I pray :)

Hi my mom got my son a skinny pig for christmas and I hnow it had 2 owners before we got it. His name is dexter and he's so sweet, he loves to give my son kisses and he came home yesterday. I think he had seizure or something, he was getting snuggled and he was purring next thing I know he started to shake. Really bad and moving really weird then he was fine again. Now it's the next day he was fine all morning I went to go make myself a coffeee and I found him on his side. I just wanted to know if anyone out there knows what's going on I'm a little sad and scared cause my son already loves him so much already can anyone help me please?

    Do you know how old the skinny pig is? They usually only live 2-3 years so he may just be getting older. If he seems healthy otherwise it may just be his age. It does sound like he's having a seizure from you description though... so if it continues to happen and you are worried you may want to take him to a vet. I don't believe there is anything over the counter you can give him for seizures.

    You can get a skinny pig at petsmart for around 80 dollars, even though they're expensive they are a great investment!:)

My husband and I took our kids and dogs to a park and we found a English Spot bunny too scared to move. We now have him and have given him a wonderful home. I can say that he is very sweet loves to be around us and our 3 kids. He loves to run around with our 2 ferrets and our cats. If anyone is looking into getting a bunny a English Spot is a great one to get. I would love to add another one so Lucky wouldn't be the only one

     If you can't here's a very humane way (which is arguably more humane than the euthanasia shot)



    Its called a CO2 (carbon dioxide) chamber. take a small, airtight box or bowl, a small cup with a good bit of baking soda and another cup of vinegar. say goodbye to your rat, and put him in the box. put the cup in as well, and pour in the vinegar. shut the box tightly, and leave it alone for 20-30 minutes. then remove the lid and bury your rat
