One morning not to long ago, a couple living in a upper-story apartment in France, received a very unexpected visitor who appeared outside their window. Alex and his girlfriend was stunned but also flattered that the cute animal chose their window.
They saw a small squirrel, holding a stick in her mouth. The sweet squirrel placed the stick on the window and ran off. But a few moments later she returned, placing another stick she found on the window. “Our reaction was: 'What is happening right now?' Why is a squirrel putting sticks at our window?”
At first the couple couldn’t figure out what the reason for the sweet visit was, but the answer soon became clear. As it turns out, the little squirrel was in the middle of her own adorable construction project, of builder herself a nest. And Alex’s window sill seemed like the perfect place to build a new home.
After her hard work and dedication, the squirrel finished her home and settled in. For the next weeks that followed, the couple and their cat was lucky enough to get an up-close look at the squirrel's daily life. “We felt so lucky to witness her every day. We saw her sleeping in the sunlight. We saw her smelling the air when she woke up — everything she did. And we had the chance to see it in an intimate way.”
As the months passed, Alex and his girlfriend documented the squirrel’s activities. But as cute as it was to watch her go about her day and being the only cute site, she wouldn’t be alone for long. In one video Alex recently shared of the squirrel at their window over the months, was the moment they met her new family. “It was so heartwarming and brought us so much joy.”
As much as having the mother squirrel and her babies there delighted and brought joy to Alex and his girlfriend, they knew that their time to go back to the wild will eventually come. Time flew by, and eventually the babies grew up big enough to explore the world on their own. But they left something behind. Plenty of heartwarming memories.
Now every time Alex and his girlfriend goes out and about in town, they keep a close look out for the squirrel and her babies they watch grow up having a gained a new perspective on their adorable lives. “We definitely came to feel love for them.”
