Family's Story of Rescuing Tiny Baby Squirrel Is So Touching

This is such an amazingly heartwarming story. @LuckyTheSquirrel found an abandoned newborn squirrel on their doorstep and with the help of wildlife friends have been saving this little animal's life. 

You won't believe what she looked like when they first found her and what she looks like now in this incredible video! 

She's doing so well! It just shows what the power of love and care and patience can do to an animal. @TerraSunbeam says, "OMG. Adorable. Thank you for saving this baby." @Rheds77Jessamandev posts, "I've only ever seen adult squirrels. This is so awesome!! Thank you for the education and the adorbs!!" And to sum up perfectly what we all are feeling, @Mariela060205 adds, "This world need More people like you. God bless your kind heart." 

It's not legal to keep a squirrel as a pet in every state, so if you find an abandoned one your best bet is to contact your local game and wildlife organization and ask them for assistance. They will be able to guide you on the best course of action on how best to help one of these adorable creatures.
