A cat found two baby squirrels in her yard and decided to become their foster mom
Mimi the kitty was out and about in her yard when she must have heard the faint cries of two baby squirrels.
“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 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.”
Mimi looked after her foster babies and kept them safe and 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.”

Cummins thanks Mimi for her new passion of being a wildlife rehabilitator. :)
Here she is with another one of her many foster babies.
