Couple Raised Abandoned Baby Squirrel To Be The Coolest Pet Ever.

They named her Thumbelina because of her tiny size, and thankfully, she had made it after all.

The now two-year-old Eastern gray squirrel managed to survive thanks to Christina and Michael.

Thumbelina was lucky to have been adopted by her human foster parents, but there was a downside.

Thumbelina’s mom never returned, and she had lost her sister, so she had no interaction with squirrels.

Thumbelina is a unique squirrel, and due to her unusual start, she is also in a class of her own.

Most wild animals are able to figure things out on their own, but it took Thumbelina a little longer.

Usually, squirrels only dream of nuts and berries, since it’s their favorite food, but not Thumbelina.

Thumbelina got used to drinking milk from the bottle, so it took a while for her to warm up to nuts.

Her interesting food choices weren’t the only thing that made Thumbelina stick out like a sore thumb.

Unlike others her age, Thumbelina would prefer to sit rather than climb, and she loved to snuggle too.
