Being born in the wild is nothing unusual if you’re a squirrel. But imagine being born in someone’s bedroom. It sounds insane, but that’s how the relationship between a man and one squirrel got started. One day, a man walked into his home and found something unusual in his bed. It turns out that a mother squirrel had built a nest on his bed using dried pines and twigs. Eventually, the squirrel gave birth to two babies. But despite her best intentions, she never returned to look after her babies. This cost one of the squirrels its life, and left the other at the mercy of humans. What happened next was heartwarming!
A man came home and found two newborn squirrels just like this one hanging around his bedroom.
They were adorable, but he was beside himself. He had no idea what to do, so he reached out for help.
Christina and Michael are wildlife rehabilitators, and they answered the man’s urgent distress call.
They took the squirrels and tried reuniting the babies with their mother, but their efforts proved futile.
Sadly, one of the babies didn’t survive, but the other one did, and it was up to them to look after her.
It became clear that the mother had no intention of coming back for her cute and chubby youngster.
The surviving baby squirrel was a precious, adorable little thing that wanted to survive in this world.
Unfortunately, her outcome wasn’t looking any better than her late sibling, but there was still hope.
Whether the baby squirrel survived or not was up in the air, but it stood a chance thanks to these two.
Christina and Michael were wildlife gurus who decided to step in and adopt the little one as their own.
