When this man started gardening, he had no idea he’d find his best friend in a bag of mulch.

This story is one of the sweetest that we have ever had. A man wants to try out his green thumb so he bought a shovel, some gloves, and a large bag of mulch. When he opens that sack something unexpected tumbles out: a baby. More specifically: a squirrel baby.
The man named the little orphan “Zip.” Barely still alive, the man decided to adopt the little pipsqueak and raise him.

Zip developed wonderfully. After a few weeks, the first signs of fur begin to show clearly.
Two weeks later the little guy has begun to look much more like a squirrel. But Zip is still very weak and must be picked up very carefully.

After three weeks his tail is fully covered in fur. From day to day, the little baby becomes stronger and more active.
In the 4th and 5th weeks his eyes begin to open. His cuteness is unbeatable. Don’t even try Boo the dog!
At 6 weeks, he has begun to cling lovingly to his dad. But he still isn’t strong enough for leisurely strolls on his own feet … errrrr, paws.
In the meantime Zip has become a little but esteemed young squirrel gentleman.
And he’s pretty hungry.
Zip has already discovered his favorite dish: blueberries.
Zip is now pretty mobile and has developed his own personality! His luck seems to be unending.
Share this story with other animal lovers. Zip is truly the cutest pet that one can imagine.
