Orphaned Opossums, Beaver, Squirrels, Rabbits, Raccoons


  • Frosty and Flurry, the Siamese kittens, had to be humanely euthanized because they developed symptoms of feline leukemia. R.I.P. Babies...we all tried hard, especially you.

  • 3 of the 5 cottontails did not make it, however, the remaining 2 rabbits are doing just fine.

  • 6 of the 8 squirrels were released. The other 2 will be ready next weekend.

  • 2 opossums were released as well, which left me with 7. Then there came 7 more, six siblings from one litter and a loner, which weighs only 30 grams.

  • the 3 raccoons have opened their eyes this weekend and are doing great.

  • the beaver kit is also doing great, but he needs to be transferred to another rescue with other beavers present. There is a place in Plano that is willing to accept him that has already 2 other beaver kits, but so far I have not been able to turn up anybody to make that 3 hour drive. I can't get away for this long myself.
Here's the little 30 gram opossum girl. She's about 6 weeks old:

And the beaver:
