1999 Chevy Lumina, won't start, looked under hood and there was a pile of freshly chewed up apple all over engine, and near spark plug wires. Car ticked when trying to start engine, then battery when dead after trying to start it several times. Engine would not start and now battery is dead. Any ideas?

assuming that you checked to see if the squirrel did any damage to any wires or anything? Jump start the car and if it goes get it fully charged up and have it load tested. also check the alternator
