She was unique. While the other squirrels ran away, she remained behind to look at the family she considered her own. Eight years later, she continued to pay them a visit to see what they were up to. A bowl of nuts was left on the front porch, and it was refilled regularly. So essentially, this had become her safe space. But one day, she shocked them with a visit, unlike any other when she brought them the most incredible gift ever.

Brantley and John Harrison devoted their lives to taking care of wild animals. As a little girl, Brantley’s grandmother, Mamie “Lulla” Hunt taught her to look after all of Nature’s animals. When she grew up, Brantley founded a wildlife rescue group with her husband John in Greenville, South Carolina. The couple’s love grew stronger when they ran into Bella. But what they hadn’t realized was that Bella was going to steal their hearts.

Bella had been injured by an owl when she was a baby. But the Harrisons took her in and managed to save the precious little squirrel before it was too late. Bella eventually healed and continued to grow. She also made some squirrel friends named Larry, Moe and Curly. The Harrisons knew it in their gut that even at four weeks old, Bella was going to make one fantastic new friend.

Bella was too young to be returned to the wild, so the Harrisons decided to wait until spring to release her. Meanwhile, Bella and her Stooges spent most of their day eating nuts, veggies and fruits. The Harrisons had no reason to doubt that Bella was normal. She behaved just like all the other squirrels they had helped. But a few years later, they came to the conclusion that Bella was unlike any squirrel they had ever encountered.

Bella and her squirrel friends had fully healed, so there was only one thing left to do. The Harrisons had no choice but to return the squirrels to the wild. So, they opened the cage, and the other squirrels raced towards a couple of trees. But Bella wasn’t behaving the same way as her fellow squirrels.
