This is the story of Mimi.
A loving female cat found two tiny baby squirrels in the yard and took them in as if she was their real “mom.”
“Many years ago my cat rescued two baby squirrels from the yard. Trying to find them proper help is how I became a wildlife rehabilitator,” said Mary Cummins of Animal Advocates.
“My last house had a totally enclosed yard with eight foot fences. I had a cat door going outside. Mimi first brought in one baby. My other cat Boots tried to take the baby but Mimi protected “her” baby,” Cummins told the fine folks at Love Meow.
“Mimi must have heard another baby outside yet I heard nothing. Mimi went and got it and brought it inside and put it with the other baby in her cat bed.”
“She looked after the babies, kept them by her side and made sure they were loved until Cummins found a local rehabber to take them. “Both baby squirrels were given to a rehabber then released back to the wild when able.”
