Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

Imagine you're working in the garden and, all of a sudden, the smallest little newborn squirrel you can imagine falls out. What would you do? Would you even know what to do? That's what happened to this man, and his story is truly inspiring. We love people who love animals, so he gets the ViralNova seal of approval! The amazing story is in the pictures below. He named him Zip. :)

Zip was found in a bag of mulch.

After 1 week...

After 2 weeks...

After 3 weeks...

4-5 weeks old and coming along!

Over 6 weeks old and healthy!

Zip became quite a character :)

Nom nom nom

Zip wants a blueberry :)

Zip grew up to be a great squirrel.
