Rescued Squirrel Is Stealing Hearts With Her Antics And Mini Teddy Bear That She Naps With

Most people see squirrels just as rodents, but they have never met Jill.

Jill is a 7-year-old squirrel that was rescued during Hurricane Issac in 2012. She fell out of her nest during the storm and was rescued by a kindhearted woman. Her mom never expected Jill to stay, but now life would not be complete without her.

The adorable squirrel is described as a, “Vegetarian, parkour expert whose only fear is the vacuum. But, she loves every Starbucks napkin she meets.”

Jill lives indoors but has plenty of room to run and jump. She is potty trained and usually has the run of the house.

She spends her days racing through the house and entertaining her family with her crazy antics. She loves to do ‘squirrel yoga’ and pose for the camera. There is never a dull moment with Jill, not even when she is sleeping.

Once she has tuckered herself out by playing, she loves to nap on plush blankets with her beloved mini teddy bear. Squirrels sleep roughly 15 hours a day, so there are countless photos of her and her precious teddy bear sleeping together. Jill cannot nap without her beloved bear.
