小编摘要:上周,英国遭受了飓风Katia的袭击,四只年仅五周大的小松鼠也不能幸免,被强风从树顶吹了下来。幸好有路人经过,把这些可爱的小家伙送到当地的救助站进行了治疗和看护。

导读:如果你的伙伴是如此地柔弱和诱人,那么你一定不愿意阻止它们像这样紧紧蜷缩着。在经历了几小时的死而复生之后,这四只松鼠宝宝之间有了更紧密的联系。上周英国被飓风Katia袭击之后,这四个小家伙被一阵强风从树顶的巢中吹了下来。之后,仅仅五周大的小松鼠们被一位路人发现并救了下来。

When your companions are so soft and inviting it must be hard to resist snuggling up to them like this.

And these four baby red squirrels have a closer bond than most after surviving being just hours from death.

They were blown out of their tree-top nest by high winds as Britain was struck by the tail-end of Hurricane Katia last week.

The squirrels, who are just five weeks old, were found by a passer-by in the aftermath of the gale-force winds.

The rescued animals were  taken to a vets' surgery in nearby Alnwick, Northumberland before being sent to the Sanctuary Wildlife Care Centre at Ulgham near Morpeth.

Sanctuary owner Kim Olson said that if the animals had not been found they would have died within hours, attacked by either magpies of cats.

She added that the animals, which weighed just 70grams, had gone into shock and were very sleepy and still.

The woman who found the baby squirrels was not able to find their mother and sanctuary workers fear that she may still be looking for her offspring. 

Before they can be released the five-week-old animals need round the clock care and are being looked after by volunteer Eileen Welsh at her home.

She uses a tiny bottle to feed them goat's milk every three hours and will continue to care for them over winter.

Kim said: "At this time of year the squirrels would be collecting food for winter but even if we released them in November they wouldn't have enough time. We're planning to release them gradually back into the wild next spring at our special unit, which is at a secret location in Northumberland. They're doing absolutely brilliantly now, they're extremely lively and mischievous."

The sanctuary cares for injured and abandoned wildlife, as well as many unwanted farm animals and pets. It currently has 150 animals.

The centre also organises special days for children with special educational needs or behavioural issues.

It was established by Kim, 49 and her husband, Alan Petterson, in 1993 but struggling to find the £70,000 a year running costs Kim fears that the sanctuary's days are numbered.

She said: "We're probably the largest animal sanctuary in the whole of the North East. We look after so much wildlife; we've got a badger cub, young foxes and injured birds of prey. It's a bleak future for North East wildlife if we don't pull through."
