But one family in Finland noticed a red squirrel in quite the opposite circumstances – it was seemingly lifeless on the side of a road. They were devastated, but then the wounded squirrel showed faint signs of life. It was just the beginning of a story that went from heartbreaking to heartwarming in a matter of seconds.
The immediately decided to try and nurse him back to health.
Unfortunately though, “We realized that his eye would never heal completely and he wouldn’t survive on his own,” says Reddit user Priami, whose family adopted the squirrel.
The family took the squirrel in as one of their own.
They named him Arttu, “pretty much the Finnish version of ‘Arthur.’”
They quickly discovered that Arttu had quite a personality.
He loved to joke around: “He liked to have playful ‘fights’ with our hands (you know, like cats do) and he was smart enough not to bite too hard.”
