I have to tell you about the poor lil Squirrel :o(
On Saturday,Paul saw it at the side of the rd,but thought it was just busy,but when we went passed about 10pm it was still there,so he picked it up in a towel & we brought it home!
Paul bathed it's mouth as it was bleeding & it sounded really snuffly.
I looked up on the internet,the RSPCA,when I rang I was referred to an out of hours,emergency vet,in Morley,Leeds.They said I could take it along,but not a lot can be done for wildlife.
We wanted him to live,so we got him (we could see he was a boy,ahem!!!!)warm & cosy in a box with a hot water bottle wrapped in a tea towel & set off to Morley (approx 20 miles).
When the vet saw him,she knew instantly he was suffering,as he was gasping,huge gulps,all his insides were crushed & he had internal bleeding,so she put him to sleep :o(
I was ok until she took him away from us & brought my hot water bottle back & then I was off,blarting my eyes out (Again!!!.She said at least we had helped him & he wasn't still at the side of the rd in agony,so that made us feel better.
I know you were all leaving me messages on here,so had to tell you,thankyou for asking :o)xxx
