Man finds a baby squirrel on his bed that grows up to be the most adorable pet

One day a man came home from work to find two baby squirrels on his bed. The baby squirrels were given birth momentarily before his arrival by a mother squirrel in a nest made of twigs and dried pine.

Christina and Michael; the wildlife rehabilitators were called on the bizarre scene in an effort to reunite the mother and her children. However, the mother squirrel showed no sign of taking babies with her and eventually, she stopped coming back.

Unfortunately one of the babies squirrels died and the wildlife officials made the assessment that the other one would also not make it out alive on its own. This is when Christina and Michael decided to pitch and adopt the baby squirrel which they later named “Thumbelina”.

Thumbelina had been special because of her unusual birth and she had to grow up without interacting with other squirrels.

Thumb was very slow in everything. She was a big baby who had to be fed with a bottle and unlike other squirrels, she was not interested in running and jumping or even climbing things. She would only walk instead of running and climbing.

Her rescuers tried to make her interact with other squirrels but she showed no interest in it at all. One of her foster parents says, “I don’t know what she thinks she is, but one thing is for sure that it is not a squirrel”.

Now Thumbelina lives a quite nice life with her mom and dad but she does get into occasional troubles of her own. Thumb loves snap peas, arugula, and avocado. She does not like other squirrels because she hates outdoors, cold weather and other squirrels.
