Jill the squirrel was just seven weeks old when she was rescued from Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana back in August 2012. When the typhoon hit, Jill was knocked out of her nest and fell to the ground. Luckily for the young squirrel, a kind family saved her and took her into their home.
Since then, Jill has become a viral celebrity in her own right, with her own Instagram account named This Girl Is A Squirrel, which boasts more than 690k followers from all over the world. Her Instagram page is full of awesome snapshots of her day-to-day life.
According to her Instagram profile, Jill is a “vegetarian, parkour expert whose only fear is the vacuum. She loves every Starbucks napkin she meets, but not quite as much as she loves napping.” And the cutest part is that whenever bedtime approaches, she insists on cuddling with her own miniature teddy bear. She always makes sure her permanent sleeping partner is in her tiny hands before falling asleep.
Jill seems to be loved by her family, who celebrate her birthday and allow her to come with them on vacation. She frequently gets to enjoy delicious snacks and sometimes gets to wear cute little outfits too!
Jill’s story is a reminder that even the smallest of animals can bring immense joy to our lives. Her adorable photos and playful personality have brought smiles to the faces of many, and her love for her mini teddy bear shows that animals have emotions just like humans. Jill’s life may have started in a storm, but with the love and care of her adopted family, she is now living her best life and bringing happiness to people all around the world.
