Let's be real... baby animals are the cutest thing ever! We can't help but gush when we see a puppy, a kitten, or a chubby little cub. The same feels go for a baby squirrel.
He's the cutest baby squirrel you ever did see. His story, however, is the saddest thing you'll ever read.
You see, this baby squirrel was taken in a cardboard box to the Merrill Animal Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. when he was on the verge of dying. He made a full recovery after a clinic volunteer named Polly Weldon gave him lots of love, care, antibiotics, and attention.
His name Cardboard was given by his hero, according to an interview with Storyful. "The name Cardboard was chosen by the veterinarian who saved his life. Our receptionist mentioned ‘nothing good comes in a cardboard box’ (anyone who works in an animal clinic can understand) and the name just made sense,” Weldon said.
In celebration of Cardboard's rescue story, Weldon gave the baby squirrel a full-out newborn photoshoot. The photos, which were shared on Imgur on February 4, featured the adorable critter wearing a tiny blue bow and posing with pink flowers.
