View Full Version : Same Squirrel Family, New Problem!!

I have a new problem with the squirrel family.

Sarah, the mother of the pack, came up to the kitchen window for her usual drive-by portion of nuts/seeds/fruit, or whatever.

I noticed that she has two enormous growths (cysts?) on her paws.
-On the left one, where we have a thumb and a finger, she has a growth that seems to be right between the two, rendering that paw hard to use.
-On the right, where we have a pinky finger, she has a growth the size of a large pea on the bottom part of the finger.

She seems to be very hungry. I have not seen her around the porch much in the past two weeks since she had her second set of babies. I don't know where they are, or how they are.

I was wondering if she would eat echinacea if I could get a piece of it from somewhere, or mix some in peanut butter for her.

I don't want to try to trap her and take her to a vet- due to the babies.


Thank you so much for reading this.
