There are so many things that we could find in our beds — a lost earring, coins, hair strands, etc. But one man found something that you don’t see every day in your bedroom — baby squirrels!
Wildlife rehabilitators Christina and Michael are used to strange callouts, but one call was especially unusual. It all started when a man had left his house one day to run some errands. When he returned, he found that a mother squirrel made a nest on his bed for her two baby squirrels.
Christina speculated that the squirrel family’s original nest was ruined due to construction work going on nearby and the pregnant mother climbed up the building, getting in through the window into the apartment to give birth to her babies.
Christina and Michael’s main goal was to give the babies to their mother, but she was all caught up finding more things for the nest.
Although the mom kept returning with materials to rebuild the nest, she eventually stopped coming back to her offsprings.
While most people would put the babies outside, hoping that their mom would finally return for them, Christina and Michael felt that the mom might not come back at all and decided to take the babies with them. Unfortunately, only one of the baby squirrels survived.
The couple adopted the baby squirrel after a local wildlife vet said that it would not survive on her own. Christina and Michael then named her Thumbelina because she was so tiny.
Two years later, Thumbelina grew up to be an adorable furry pet. Since she had no interaction with other squirrels all her life, she didn’t know how to act like one, nor was she interested in doing anything with them.
Whether she was born this way or affected by the early trauma, she lacked basic squirrel survival skills like climbing and jumping, and in general, didn’t behave like a squirrel at all.
One of them said: “I don’t know what she thinks she is, but it’s definitely not a squirrel.”
