When he was only 4 or 5 days old, Compton the squirrel fell from the rafters of Chris and Debbie Compton’s thatched roof, right in between their beds.
The little, thumb-sized cutie yelped and squealed for his mommy, so the Comptons waited about an hour with him, hoping she would soon return.
The Merrifields immediately started little Compton on hourly feedings, and quickly nursed him back to health. In no time at all, this tiny sweetheart began growing, maturing, and exploring his beautiful new home.
He loved wreaking all sorts of adorable havoc around the orphanage, from drinking his weight in juice to stealing whole rolls of toilet paper for his nests.
Raised by humans, this clever fellow absolutely loves hanging around his adoptive family.
Even after the Merrifields unlocked Compton’s evening cage, gifting him total freedom to venture back into the wild full-time, he continued reemerging every morning to breakfast with his human family.
