Spouses Brantley and John found baby squirrels, one of which was injured. The family took them home and nursed and fed them for several months. The rodents were very fond of nuts, although they did not refuse fruits and vegetables. The babies were named Larry, Moe, Curly, and the injured squirrel was named Bella.
Soon Bella was perfectly healthy, and the other cubs also gained weight and grew older. People realized that it was time for the squirrels to return to their natural habitat. Brantley had time to fall in love with unusual pets, she felt a special affection for Bella, perhaps because at the time it was this wounded baby that required the most care and attention.
The family took the cubs outside their territory and set them free. The squirrels visited their rescuers at first, but soon began to appear less and less frequently, and then stopped their visits altogether.
Bella’s unexpected appearance really surprised the family. The girl was different from the other squirrels before, she was very attached to people. The meeting between Bella and Brantley was touching. From that day on the woman began to leave nuts on the doorstep so that the squirrel could drop in for treats at any time. Bella began to come regularly; she, like her guardian, found herself not ready to part ways for good.
Bella doesn’t just come in for treats. After she eats the nuts, she stays on the doorstep and waits for Brantley or John to come out to her. If people don’t show up for a long time, the beast climbs up on the windowsill and starts peeking through the windows, trying to get their attention.
The couple and their children always welcome the visit of the furry guest. The children feed the squirrel and play with it. Bella easily goes to people’s arms and loves to cuddle.
