Out in the wild, when a baby animal is separated from its mother it is unlikely to survive. Without the nurturing and nutrients a mother can provide, tiny creatures don’t stand a chance. Luckily for this baby squirrel, home was not out in some forest. It was right outside the house of a caring human who could help.
The squirrel’s nest was situated on an electric pole that stood next to the man’s home. The baby squirrel had fallen out of the nest and into a drain pipe. Amazingly, it was able to pull itself out of that wretched place, only to find itself lost and alone.
Luckily, the man had a kind heart. As soon as he noticed the tiny squirrel he took it in. “I quickly rushed down to pick it up as it could have easily become the surprise breakfast to a stray dog or a cat,” he shared in his Youtube video. “I softly cupped it in my hands and brought it to the cosy ambiance of my home.”
The man rinsed the baby squirrel off, but there was another problem. This little guy was so hungry he could hardly move. “It looked extremely stressed and could not muster up enough energy to jump out of my hands,” the squirrel’s rescuer explained. He needed to find some way to feed this tiny creature.
After doing some research on YouTube, the man figured out a way to nurture his new friend. Using a medical dropper, he fed the baby some milk. Of course, it wasn’t as good as the milk that came from the squirrel’s own mother, but it would keep the furry fellow alive until he could find his way home.
The man fashioned an old shoe box into a temporary home for the squirrel. After a few hours, the little guy had his energy back. Once he was up and running, his rescuer picked him up and placed him on his shoulder. That’s when he noticed the mother watching from a distance.
As soon as the two locked eyes, the mama headed toward her child. “I could clearly feel that she was afraid of me but that didn’t stop her from coming close to me,” the human said. Then, once the squirrel had her baby back, something incredible happened.
“She looked at me intently and then softly touched my hand as if graciously thanking me for saving her baby’s life. I felt a lump in my throat and an indescribable feeling of love and respect for that tiny creature.”
This was one experience the hero would never forget. Seeing mother and child reunited renewed his faith in a future full of compassion and kindness.
“I feel blessed to have been able to save the life of that tiny creature who with its mother reminded me of some really important virtues.”
