想象一下,你回到家,惊奇地发现自己的床上多了两只刚出生的松鼠宝宝,而松鼠妈妈却不见了,你会怎么办?虽然听着很不可思议,不过,最近还真发生了这么一件事。虽然遇到不靠谱的松鼠妈妈很是让人头痛,不过世上还是好人多,小松鼠被人收养,开心地活了下来。不过嘛......在特殊的环境下长大,她可能不觉得自己是只松鼠。

一起来看看吧!

One day a man came back home, only to find that a mother squirrel had made a nest of twigs, dried pines and branches on his bed for her two newborn squirrels

一男子回到家发现一只松鼠妈妈在自己的床上用细枝、干松果和树枝给她刚出生的两只松鼠宝宝筑了个巢。



Wildlife rehabilitators Christina and Michael were called out to the unusual incident, and tried to reunite the babies with their mother
于是,野生动物康复者Christina和Michael在接到通知后赶去帮忙,试图让松鼠宝宝和妈妈团聚。


However, busy with fetching materials for the nest, mother squirrel had no intention of taking the babies with her
然而,由于要忙着筑巢,松鼠妈妈并没有打算照顾自己的宝宝。


Eventually, she stopped coming back at all
最后,她干脆就抛下这两只松鼠宝宝不管了。


Only one of the baby squirrels survived, but even her future was predicted to be grim
只有一只松鼠宝宝活了下来,而即便如此,她的未来依然困难重重。


Fortunately, Thumbelina – a now two-year-old Eastern grey squirrel – has been given a new chance at life when Christina and Michael decided to adopt her
幸运的是,这个“拇指姑娘“——现在已经两岁的灰松鼠,有了一个全新的生活,因为Christina和Michael决定收养她。


Because of an unusual birthing season and the loss of her little sister, Thumb had to grow up by herself without interaction with other squirrels
由于她出生的时候并不是一般松鼠的生育期,加上没有小松鼠妹妹的陪伴,“拇指姑娘“必须独自长大,而没有其他松鼠玩伴。


Everything with Thumb was slow. While most babies could not care less about milk, having already tasted the real food, Thumb was a big baby with a bottle
照顾“拇指姑娘“必须要小心翼翼。当很多松鼠宝宝孩子离不开奶的时候,她已经开始吃一些真正的食物了,她现在是个有奶瓶的大孩子了。


Unlike other baby squirrels, Thumbelina wasn’t interested in jumping and climbing. She would walk instead of running, and sit instead of climbing
跟其他松鼠宝宝不一样,“拇指姑娘“对跳跃和攀爬并不感兴趣。她更喜欢走路而不是跑步,更喜欢坐着而不是攀爬。


Even despite the best efforts to introduce Thumbelina to other squirrels, she would never want anything to do with them
虽然他们已经尽了最大的努力想要让“拇指姑娘“跟其他的松鼠一起玩,但她却觉得自己跟他们格格不入。


“I don’t know what she thinks she is, but it’s definitely not a squirrel“
“我不知道她对自己的定位,反正她不觉得自己是个松鼠“



Now Thumbelina is a happy squirrel who spends her time peacefully with her Mom and Dad, but not without occasionally getting in some sort of trouble!
不过现在“拇指姑娘“很开心,有爸爸妈妈的陪伴,虽然有时候会调皮捣蛋,但是大部分时间还是很乖的!



She loves sugar snap peas, arugula, and avocado. And she absolutely hates outdoors, cold weather, other squirrels and the vacuum cleaner
她喜欢吃甜豆、芝麻菜和牛油果,但超级讨厌待在户外、寒冷的天气、其他松鼠和吸尘器
