Heres a video of the chipmunk.
So my sister found a abbandoned baby chipmunk while outside. We decided to look around for the mother and leave the chipmunk where we found him to see if the mother showed up. Well she never showed up so we took him in. We put him in a plastic droor with woodchips and a bag ful of warm water that he could lay on. We also decided to buy him gatorade which the people at the pet store told us to get him. We then bought him some type of pet formula. Or maybe it was just normal formula.
The first night he escaped the droor and crawled under my hoody that she left on the ground. I guess it was a good thing I decided to check up on him.
Now for today. My mom went to work and my sister had to goto this camp thing. My mom never told me this so I didnt know I should of been watching the chipmunk(I sleep all day). My mom came home from work and check on the chipmunk to see that he looked dead. His lips were blue and we were scared. My mom kept rubbing his head but we assumed he was dead. We then drove to the vet to see if he could help. He was closed. We went back home and kept trying to help him. There was no clear animal hospital around and we didnt have a phone book to find one. He looked dead but and his stomach showed no signs of breathing. While we were stroking him we noticed he was making noises. He was also moving his lips. We grabbed a little suringe and put water in it. Than put it near his mouth. He started sucking on it. He than started to move around.
Turns out he was just dehydrated because we never gave him food or water. We felt like absolute shit. Now I'm personally going to make sure he gets tooken care of.
Also a mod locked my thread asking for help which I didnt appreciate at all.
