Bella The Squirrel Returns To The Family Who Saved Her 7 Years Ago.

Imagine being born out in the wild, and getting attacked by a large winged creature. But you didn't provoke it. So, why did it attack you? You're so new to this world, so you know you couldn't have done anything to upset anyone. This was exactly what must have run through Bella's young head before she was rescued from certain death by Brantley Harrison and her family back in 2009. Oh, but did we mention that Bella isn't human? She's an adorable little squirrel, who was adopted into a family of people, and was so grateful for their TLC, that she still stops by now and then.

In October of 2009, The Harrison family found this baby squirrel all alone and in bad shape.

Brantley Harrison realized that the squirrel had been in the worst owl attack of its young life. Fortunately, the Greenville County, South Carolina family had plenty of space in their hearts to care for the little one.

Rescuers had treated the poor creature and allowed it to convalesce in Brantley Harrison's home.

The baby squirrel was eventually named Bella and she was treated like a member of the family, which meant she got lots of food, and of course, the most important thing ever, hugs, and tons of love from everyone.

The best thing about the whole situation was that Bella wasn't the only one of her kind.

The Harrisons had also graciously taken in three other squirrels too, which they named Larry, Curly, and Moe, after "The Three Stooges." In less than no time, the family of squirrels continue to bond with each other.

Bella and her squirrely family stayed with the Harrisons until the spring of 2010, before leaving.

The Harrisons had helped her heal with the help of a diet of nuts and fruits. Now it was time to let her run around the forest and reintegrate into the wild. But it wasn't long before Bella made a surprising return.

Despite having left the Harrisons, Bella never strays too far from her adoptive human family.

According to Bradley, Bella will sit at the front door until someone notices she's there. If necessary, she'll jump over the window of the dining room window to see if anyone is home, so they can welcome her back in.
