Don't tell Zachary, but his bushy-tailed brother is adopted. The rodent is one of three orphaned squirrels being raised by Zack's mom, along with her own two pups, in Cundy's Harbor, Maine.
Norma, a 5-year-old long-haired Chihuahua, has a litter of five. Three of them can hang upside down from the top of their kennel cage and hold food in their front paws. That's because three of Norma's babies are squirrels.
In early April, a tree worker cut down a tree near Cundy's Harbor Road to find a squirrel nest inside with three infants. They were abandoned, likely because the chainsaw scared off the little tykes' mother.

So adorable! Who can resist these two? Mankind can learn a lot from the animals. It doesn't matter who you are, we all have the capacity to love each other.
