Man shelters a squirrel in the hope that it will be released, the animal decides to stay with him

The bond between animals and humans never ceases to amaze us! We’re always excited to share some feel-good stories about wonderful friendships, some of which have been born unexpectedly. And that’s exactly what we’re about to tell you!

In 2019, an adorable squirrel about 7 weeks old fell out of its den next to a bird’s nest. The winged creatures weren’t too happy about this sudden visit, so they attacked him. Fortunately, a man named Paul was driving and saw the incident. He took the squirrel back to its den, hoping to find its mother. Unfortunately, she didn’t want to get her baby back, so the man decided to take the little squirrel home and raise it with the intention of going back into the wild after it recovered. He named her Stella. However, the fluffy creature had no intention of leaving, so the two are now bonded for life.

The man told us that it all started when he was returning home after dropping his daughter off at school. “When I was at a red light I saw a baby squirrel running away from 2 birds that were attacking it.”

According to Paul, Stella was very scared.

The owner revealed that the squirrel was afraid of him at first. “She was trying to protect herself. They were trying to scare me by making noises.”

“I tried to bring him back near his nest but his mother never took him back. And after waiting for more than 9 hours, I decided to take him to my place for the night. Next Day tried to go back to his nest but his mother didn’t want him.

Unfortunately, the squirrel’s mother wasn’t interested in bringing him back, so Paul took the little creature to his place.

“When I realized she was never going to leave when I let her climb some trees and she would run around and have so much fun and still want to come back to me.”

“I was so sure she would run away when she saw what it felt like to be free. But she always comes back to me. Or runs to me if she sees me getting too far away from her.” .

We asked Paul if he would have to change his home or his routine to be with Stella. The man replied that he hadn’t really changed much. “Probably giving her some space in my room for her cage. That I usually keep open. Only closed at night when she sleeps. I’m a disabled US Marine veteran who was injured in the line of duty.” “I was in a car accident years after my military service and was considered disabled. So I’m home most of the time to be with him.”

Paul is taking good care of Stella and gives her all the love she needs.

According to the owner, squirrels require a lot of attention. They love to play and be loved and cared for.

“I make sure I feed him a very healthy diet. Like 80% fruits and vegetables. He loves avocados. All squirrels love avocados. They’ll do anything for them. The other 20%. Nuts. Walnuts, almonds, peanuts. Roasted and unsalted. Never give squirrels raw peanuts or any raw nuts. It’s not good for them. It takes away their calcium. And they can get bone disease.”

“Everyone who knows Stella loves her! My kids both love her, and all of my family loves to come and feed her. My friends, too. They all call Stella her. Loves to give treats. He loves to have guests. He even has 2 dogs that come to see him every day! They sure are friends.”

“Stella is very important to me. We have to be there for each other. Even the animals!”

“I think the most important part of it all, being around Stella, is that she reminds me of my dad who passed away in 2017. When I was 8 years old, my dad and I had each other. but were throwing baseballs. All of a sudden, we heard 2 little screams. It was 2 baby squirrels being thrown out of their nest by their mother. And she didn’t want her babies either. So we raised them. I helped. One died in the first month. He was sick. But the other was with us for 9 years. So Stella reminds me of my dad and my pet squirrel Suzy. It’s like a full circle. Maybe. That my children will one day do the same and help the squirrel.

“I’m more than happy to have Stella in my life”

“I tell everyone that I saved her but I can say that there are times when I feel like she saved me! The love she gives me back and her playfulness makes me happy and grateful.” makes

When I was younger and we had Suzy, it was very different. She was all about my father. She used to play with us but my father was her only one. And I can say that Stella is the same way with me. I really think he was sent to me by God and my father!

One thing I would like to convey to everyone is that squirrels require a lot of attention and time. If you don’t have it, they won’t be happy at all. If you want to pet a squirrel, just feed a local one outside. They will definitely respond to you and make you feel special. And remember, try the avocado. They’ll love you for it!”
