OK, the only bandaged squirrel I've ever seen but still freakin' adorable.
SQUIRREL WITH A SORE NUT...
Crunchy the baby squirrel is nursing a sore head after falling out of his tree

THIS bandaged baby squirrel is looking far from bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Named Crunchy by his carers, the four-week-old grey squirrel has been put on painkillers after tumbling from a branch when a tree surgeon sawed through his home.
Luckily he escaped serious injury save for a nasty cut on his head and is now recovering at the Wildlife Aid Centre in Leatherhead, Surrey, where he is being fed milk, nuts and biscuits.
The four-inch long squirrel was found lying injured in a garden in nearby Guildford. “He’s now feeding well, which is great news and he is very lively,” said the sanctuary’s founder, Simon Cowell.
“I think Crunchy fell from the tree and cut his head when he hit the deck or caught some branches on the way down. We have a licence that allows us to release a certain number back into the wild each year. All being well we will release Crunchy in eight weeks.
“It is okay to handle him while he is this small but as he gets older we will have to keep some distance because they have a nasty bite.”
