Tia the Squirrel
Species: Thirteen-Lined Ground Squirrel
Group: 1, Female
Arrived: 07 December 2012
Sanctuary - Crittery Resident
Tia the Thirteen-Lined Ground Squirrel came to us via Scritches Rat and Rodent Rescue in 2011. She had been very well cared for, with a lady who sadly had to give up her normal and exotic animals due to health conditions.
As Tia is blind, we agreed to take her on as a permenant resident and not put her through the strain of being rehomed again. Tia is understandably quite shy, and benefits from a smaller cage where she is comfortable with a familar layout. She is a lovely girl, but since handling seems to stress her we keep this at a minimum just to keep an eye on her health.
Tia lived with us until her death from natural causes on the 7th January 2016. It was lovely to see her reach such a good age!
