Adorable Squirrel Rescued From Hurricane Can’t Sleep Without Her Cuddly Teddy Bear, And People Can’t Handle Her Cuteness
Published in Jan 2020 / Updated in Aug 2021
Brace yourselves for I’m about to introduce you to the cutest thing you’ve ever seen all week, possibly this year.
You’ve heard of playful kittens, adorable doggos, and lovable horses, but what about something altogether ‘tinier’?
Meet Jill, an 8-year-old squirrel who was rescued from Hurricane Isaac when she was just weeks old, back in 2012, and now she can’t bear to sleep without her cuddly miniature teddy bear.
During the tropical typhoon which ripped through Louisiana that summer, Jill fell out of her nest, and a passerby decided to take her in until the storm was over.
Eight years later, Jill is still living with her savior. The now Insta-famous squirrel has become very domesticated- she even has her own laptop!
How do you do?
She even lives like a queen. Her owner has made sure Jill has everything a domesticated squirrel might desire.
Including her own laptop, which was apparently a special gift she got for her birthday.
She’s a queen!
Teddy bear love
Jill loves her miniature teddy bear so much. She clings to it as a wild squirrel would cling to the last acorn of the season.
Rub my belly.
She has become so domesticated that she acts just like a pet dog or a cat!
Jill also loves to dress up, or at least her owner loves to dress her up. And we love to see it!
This look is called “Vacation Barbie.”
Let’s play dead.
I swear I’ve never seen squirrel such a playful.
Snug as a bug.
Are you ready for winter?
It looks as though Jill is!
Jill is also a real hard worker.
According to her owner:
“Jill is a devoted employee who really knows how to boost morale. Her favorite times of the day are second breakfast, lunch, snack time, and nap time. Can be seen calling the shots from her cat tree, working intently wrapped up in her baby blanket in my lap, or securely snuggled around my neck in a scarf for client calls.”
Jill loves partying.
But she will always be in bed by 9.
Jill squirrel is potty-trained, as her owner taught her how to use the garbage can as her bathroom. And even though she has her own cage, she’s always on the loose and freely jumps around the house.
She also super-photogenic and dazzles her Instagram fan world with her daily antics.
Yes, Jill, the squirrel lives quite the life. She’s probably one of the most popular pets on Instagram.
She even has her own line of custom-designed pillows, so we don’t need to emphasize just how famous this little squirrel is.
Isn’t she just the loveliest little squirrel you’ve ever seen?
