hi there, I rehab squirrels every year, you have to take it to a shelter, you cannot properly raise/rehab a single squirrel, they have to have at least one other nest mate in order to do " squirrel" things, a lone squirrel raised will never be able to be released into the wild. You have to make sure you stimulate it to do it's pee/poop because its little system will back up and poison the squirrel, death comes quickly. In ontario it is illegal to rehab a squirrel unless you are licenced, or a foster(for a rescue) . It is also very illegal to keep one as a pet and if taken from you by the ministry it will be put down. Please consider calling a rescue. That is the best chance you could give it.
