A baby squirrel is being nursed back to health after she fell 75-feet from her nest onto the concrete sidewalk.

The cute critter suffered a bloody nose, a broken tooth, and a broken ankle., according to City Wildlife, a  wildlife rehabilitation center in Washington, D.C. that is helping nurse the baby animal back to health.

As part of her recovery, the squirrel has been wearing a tiny cast on her ankle and gets examined by a veterinarian every three days, City Wildlife wrote on its Facebook page.

Thankfully, the six and a half week old critter, who seems to have a healthy appetite, is expected to make a full recovery.
