    lewis is a 10 week old gray squirrel i have had for a month . i am certifed rehabber here in nc and last wednesday we came home from town and noticed lewis was not using his tail or hind legs .we were heartbroken , after 3 vet visits and finally my personal vet for my dogs and cat actually did an xray . we were gone 3 hours before we left for town he was fine then bam. anyway we are all heartbroken and in touch with alot of helpful people and im gonna try to give him a semi good life . the xrays show a vertebre that has turned and pinching the other verts causing paralysis . the doc said it was a a birth abnormailty as a child birth defect in kids . he said eventually it could and proly would have happened to him in the wild. anyway just give lewis some prayers please he really needs them. thanks

    hangmans joke my prayers are with you and Lewis. I know he is just a little squirrel but he is one of God's creatures and you love him or you wouldn't be doing what you do(rehab).God Bless you and Lewis! I do the same thing here in GA. and released a young squirrel last year.Take care and good luck with any future critters.
