A squirrel that has fallen from a tree has become a home favorite - Wikipet
Good people will never turn away from those who need help. So Simone from South Africa decided to help the little squirrel, who fell from a tree and was completely alone.
“She was still all pinkish and completely bald, 5-6 days old. Cold as ice, she called mother, but she did not return after her. "
Simone was well aware that one baby could not survive. So she took her home and gave her a name - Dingeti.
“Raising a squirrel is not an easy task. The first few weeks had to feed her every hour. Even at night I set myself an alarm clock. ”
For three months, Simone carried the squirrel with her to work and kept her close to the warmth.
“I built her a house out of a shoebox with warm blankets inside, but she refused to sleep there. "She liked being with me, and she still sleeps on my bed."
“She always went to travel with us, walked around the car and climbed onto our shoulders. She really liked it. ”
Simone was ready that sooner or later her pet would have to let go back to nature. But when the time came, Dingeti simply did not want to leave. When she first spent some time outside, she soon returned to her savior. But, loving the fresh air, Dingeti began to walk every day.
"She always comes home in the evening."
And one day Dingeti returned home with unusual news. She was pregnant and began to build a nest right in the house, using toilet paper.She had a baby named Misty, whom Simone was happy to help raise.
Now Misty's squirrel is already quite large, and Simone has two whole fluffy best friends!
