This Guy Saved A Tiny Animal, But Had No Idea What It Actually Was.
We are often told not to meddle with wildlife, coming into contact with humans can often turn fatal for an animal. Their mother or group can reject them once they have been touched by people. For this reason, it’s very easy to walk past a small critter and simply ignore it.
There are circumstances, however, when a person just knows that if they keep walking, the small, vulnerable animal may not have much of a chance for survival. Jeff Longo had that predicament when he went for a stroll one day.
He had no idea what type of animal the small and grey creature was. Jeff just knew he couldn’t walk away. With a lot of patience and TLC, the small critter opened its eyes and was a strong healthy fur ball within three months of its rescue. Who knew a bearded guy could become a surrogate mom.
Jeff Longo knew he couldn't leave the tiny creature on its own.
The newborn was by itself on the side of the road on a extremely hot day in St. Petersburg, Florida. It seemed the tiny animal got separated from her family.
Longo took to Reddit to ask for advice how to nurse the tiny animal back to health.
Jeff was mostly told to forget about it as he had no previous experience rehabilitating an animal, let alone one so tiny.
Jeff was told the critter would die after he posted some photos online.
Instead, Jeff researched for ways to help his new friend get healthy and strong.
Jeff made the nocturnal animal baby bottles with puppy formula.
To make sure the creature would be eating, Jeff took it to work with him everyday.
He named her Lady Biscuit. Turns out the small animal is a flying squirrel.
Lady Biscuit has quickly become part of the family. The dogs love her but Jeff makes sure he is around at all times. He is not afraid the canines will eat Lady Biscuits, he is worried they may accidentally squish her.
