This story of man and squirrel is my feel good story of the day. Enjoy!
What began as a rescue attempt has formed into a 2-year friendship between a Dallas man and his pet squirrel.
Allen Pursely’s husband, who works at a vet clinic, picked up Rocky after he had fallen out of a tree. At that time, the baby animal was so young his eyes were still shut. With Pursely working from home and taking primary care of Rocky, the two forged a bond, he told The Dodo.
“I didn’t know what I was doing in the beginning. We were just basically trying to keep him alive,” Pursely said in the interview. “Then I started spending a lot of time with him. Before the week was up, I was already converting our closet into a space for him.”
Now, Pursely is the only person Rocky wants to be around. Even the other house pets, a few dogs and a cat, are no match for Rocky’s roughhousing, Pursely told The Dodo.
It turns out that there are a whole bunch of rescued squirrel videos on youtube. Here’s one of many I found.
Squirrel lives matter!
