Paul Williams was going about his business and taking photographs when he stumbled upon an orphaned baby squirrel on the ground. Little did he know, it was the beginning of an amazing journey…
Paul discovered the tiny squirrel just in time. He appeared to be dead at first glance but was still very much alive.
He took Rob home to try and nurse him back to health.
It wasn’t long until the baby squirrel started showing some life. And the two became inseparable!
Rob would find interesting places to rest up…
…and even bask in the sun for a nice nap!
Paul would take Rob everywhere he possibly could.
It was the best way to watch over him and make sure he’s safe. But Paul enjoyed the company.
The little squirrel became a big part of his life.
But it was about to come to an end.
He knew he couldn’t keep the squirrel forever and had to return him to where he belonged: the wild.
The Wilpattu National Park in northwestern Sri Lanka would rehabilitate Rob to get him ready for his new life.
The beautiful, unique friendship had to come to an end, but it was definitely for the best.
It’s sad that they had to say goodbye, but it’s something Paul will cherish forever. As for Rob, he’ll be able to live the life he was always meant to live. 🙂
