This Man Found A Newborn Squirrel. What He Did Is Adorable.

Imagine you’re doing the gardening one day and you cut open a bag of mulch — to find this tiny little guy curled up inside. A newborn squirrel, just days old, fighting for his life. That’s just what happened to this man, who then took the baby squirrel under his wing and cared for it in the most adorable way. He named the squirrel Zip, and after just two weeks the little fella was “eating like a champ”. Then after about a month his eyes started opening. And before long he was as good as new, jumping around inside his owner’s car without a care in the world. Here are the pictures showing the amazing, and truly inspiring, story.

He found Zip in a bag of mulch, curled up in a tiny ball.

This was him after just one week. With a tiny layer of fur starting to grow on his back.

And it didn’t take long before he was bouncing around to his heart’s content.
