A resident of the United States has turned a tiny something lying on the asphalt into an unusual pet. It took her two years for the pink ball thrown by everyone to become a sociable squirrel, and he likes a new life.
The story of Jessica Adams, a Washington State resident, began on February 25, 2019, writes Bored Panda… The girl was walking down the street when she came across a tiny body lying on the asphalt.
I found him in February 2019, he was lying on the sidewalk. There were no other squirrels around, he was lying all alone, hairless and with his eyes closed. Later we found out that it was most likely captured by a predator. He did not have a part of the tail, – recalls Jessica Adams.
Jessica was not sure if the squirrel would survive, but set out to help the animal get out of a difficult situation at all costs. She became a human mother to the animal, which, according to veterinarians, was only a few days old.

At the beginning of his recovery, Steve weighed only 36 grams. Therefore, Jessica, together with veterinarians, developed a special nutrition system for him.
At first I wanted to send him to the Wildlife Control Service, but they said that they no longer have places. They offered to put him to sleep, after which I decided that I would take care of him myself. I was simply left with no choice. I had to feed him, using the advice of the veterinarian, every two hours – even at night, waking up with an alarm clock.
The girl became so attached to Steve that she decided to keep him for herself even after the pet recovered. And the squirrel, apparently, is not at all opposed to living in a new family.
Steve spends most of his time in his own cabin in the backyard of Jessica’s house. The hostess pampers the squirrel with delicacies that his fellows in the wild do not have.
Moreover, Steve has his own page in instagram, in which Jessica shares funny stories and photos of life together with a squirrel. More than five thousand people are subscribed to the account.
He needed me. At first I didn’t think I would become so attached to him, but now I understand. I just love it.
Not all squirrels are as lucky as Steve. A woman from Canada went to the backyard of her house and saw a squirrel with a knife in its paws. Apparently, the poor man finally brought life without means of self-defense.
And another squirrel decided that it was time to let off steam after eating fermented pears. Her behavior after that is typical of cosplaying a party in a bar on a Friday night.
