Friendly Rescue Squirrel Holds Former Caretaker's Hand

A rescue squirrel in Eustis, Florida, showed his former caretaker he hadn’t forgotten her, waiting for her to pet him and holding her hand with his tiny paws.

Cindy Jenkins recorded the sweet moment between her and Turkey, the squirrel seen in the video.

“Turkey is a rescue squirrel who was released with his sisters about a year ago. They’ve all stayed close by, have nests and babies. Turkey is sweet and mellow, and although he’s a wild squirrel now he still loves his Momma,” Jenkins said.
