Four baby squirrels have been found a new home at a Wildlife Rescue Center after being thrown out of their treetop home. The squirrels lost their cozy nest after Hurricane Katia struck the UK last week.

A litter of five-week old red squirrels were made homeless last week after Hurricane Katia, in Northumberland U.K., hurled them out of their nest in the trees.

The four squirrels were rescued by a passer-by who took them to a vet.

The vet then sent them to the Sanctuary Wildlife Care Center near Morpeth.

A volunteer at the Sanctuary will be responsible for their 24-hour care over the winter until they are old enough to be re-introduced into the wild.

According to Kim Olson, the Sanctuary owner, the babies weighed between 70 and 80 grams when they were brought in and had gone into shock.

Although the red squirrel is native to Britain their numbers are in decline while the number of American grey squirrels is rising.
