Chipmunk Baby

I got a phone call from Sean this evening he had been out walking and found a baby chipmunk. I could hardly believe it. Those things are definitely hard to see let alone capture.

Walt & I rode out to pick him up and sure enough there it was. Hanging out in Sean's coat pocket. He seemed a little lethargic, hopefully the little fellow was only a little dehydrated. Sean started giving him little drops of water in the car on the way home and he seemed to perk up slightly. He was definitely a sight to see. Hopefully he will pull through and be okay.

He reminded me somewhat of "Wee Cockrell", Danielle's rat that she had about 5 years ago. He wasn't much bigger than this when she brought him home from the pet store.

UPDATE: The little fellow made it through the night, but passed away around 9:30 the next morning.
