Guy Finds A Baby Squirrel That Can’t Even Walk Yet, Takes It Home And Now They’re Best Friends

If you haven’t seen enough cute animal pictures today, here’s something I bet you weren’t expecting: a pet squirrel!

28-year-old Igor Grishin, who lives in the small town of Konchezero in Karelia, Russia, was walking in the woods when he found the squirrel unable to walk about a year ago. He brought the baby animal home, where Chippy, as the little critter is now called, has lived ever since. Chippy’s Instagram account shows him lounging on pillows in Grishin’s home, eating fruit, and even being roommates with a cat.

“He is always making me laugh, distracting me from the worries of everyday life. I am very happy that we met each other,” Grishin told Bored Panda. He also shared that Chippy has a squirrel house built especially for him, and has successfully learned some commands.
