Leopold -- the squirrel

This past Friday night my son and his girlfriend befriended the most unlikely of friends...a small baby squirrel. This tiny squirrel, no more than a few weeks old, was chased up the side of her house by cats and clung, terrified, to the side of the house for more than 6 hours. Being so traumatized, Leopold (name he was given) was glad to be rescued and feel the warm loving hands of humans. "Hey, this isn't so bad", claimed Leopold. "These humans are actually nice people and are here to help me. Therefore, I'm going to repay their kindness with squirrel friendship!" And he did!

As you can see, Leopold has become quite smitten with his new human friends. After spending the weekend with his human friends, Leopold is going to be handed over to a local wildlife rehab facility to be introduced back to the wild.
