Alen Pursley was the last person who wanted to have a squirrel at home. But when they found a baby squirrel that fell from a tree Alen and her husband helped the baby as much as they could.
The baby’s eyes were still closed and it needed special care. Pursley’s husband worked at the veterinary center and knew how to treat the squirrel properly.
When the squirrel opened its eyes the first thing it saw was Persley. They named him Rocky. But When you love someone one name is not enough so the squirrel was also called Squirellito. Sweet Squirrel … Squiggidy-Boo.
Pursley loved their new family member and day by day they became more and more connected to each other. So the squirrel grew up but still lived in the house. Pursley couldn’t release him into the wild but when he made up his mind the squirrel rejected him.
So he stayed with his saviors for 2 years and continues to live happily with them. But wild animals should live in the wild. If you rescued squirrels or other wild animals keep them until they can stand on their own feet and release them into the wild where they belong.
