This poor baby squirrel fell a really long way out of her nest and onto a sidewalk, where she got pretty banged up.

The precious critter is wearing a red cast, in case you didn't notice, because after her tumble she was brought to City Wildlife, the only wildlife rehabilitation center in Washington, D.C., for treatment -- followed by the most adorable photo session.

City Wildlife said Tuesday on Facebook that this little one will soon be improving, too:

This baby squirrel was brought into City Wildlife after she fell 75 feet from her nest on to the concrete sidewalk below. She suffered a bloody nose, a broken tooth, and a broken ankle. Luckily, just like children, this squirrel is young enough that her ankle should heal very quickly. Send her your well wishes on a speedy recovery!

Get well soon, baby squirrel! And please put out more photos, City Wildlife!
