When a tree falls on your property it can be quite the job to take care and remove it. Depending on how it falls, where it falls and what kind of damage it causes can all be factors that need to be assessed before you begin the big process of getting rid of it. Unless you are a trained proffessional it is probably best to higher somebody who specializes in tree removal, because the process can not only be difficult and arduous, it can also be potentially dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing.

With that being said that brings us to today’s remarkable story featuring a Vet Tech named Alan Firstly From Lewisville, Texas. One afternoon he was home from work, when one of those huge thunder and lightning storms came roaring through. The storm came in fast and strong, with lightning, thunder, powerful wind gusts and torrential rain. Alan was sitting in his house safe when he heard what sounded like an explosion and then a loud crashing sound. He decided to stay inside until after the storm had past, then he would go out and see what the heck happened and he prayed that whatever it was didn’t cause too much damage.

When the storm finally passed Alan walked outside and saw the giant tree in his front yard had fallen and had been completely taken out by the powerful storm. There was a decent amount of damage to his property and a big clean up job would need to be done. As he examined the fallen tree and his property to try and figure out how he was going to handle this situation he noticed something moving close to the fallen tree. He approached it, looked down and saw the tiniest, itty bitty and adorable baby squirrel all on its own with no mom or dad squirrel around.

Alan being a Vet Tech, was obviously a big animal lover and his focus quickly drifted from the fallen tree to this baby squirrel. Before he did anything to try and intervene, he waited around for a while to see if the baby squirrel’s mother would return to pick up her baby and bring it to safety. After a long wait and no mom in sight, he thought maybe she had been killed when the tree fell and now this baby would have no chance of survival because it wasn’t old enough or big enough to survive on its own in the wild.

Alan decided to gently pick the baby up, and brought it inside his home. Although he was very familiar with most animals because he was a vet tech he really wasn’t sure what the best course of action would be for this particular situation, so he did what anyone else would do…. He got on his computer and asked google. From the information he gathered on the internet he realized that the squirrel was probably less than 7 days old. It was so young that it’s adorable little squirrel eyes hadn’t even opened yet.

So now, he realized he was going to be completely responsible for the life of this little baby and for better or worse was basically the squirrel’s new dad. Luckily because Alan was a vet tech he had the perfect place to bring the squirrel to, the veterinarians office! After discussing the squirrel situation with some of his colleagues, they realized that this baby squirrel would need 24/7 until it was big, healthy and strong enough to be re-released back into the wild.

Luckily for him the other Vet Techs he worked with, were more than happy to help out taking turns caring for and watching the squirrel. It needed to be fed by hand with a bottle because it was far too young to eat on its own. They would take turns bringing the baby to their houses to watch the lil’ guy over night, then in the morning they would bring him back to work.

Alan quickly began to love this adorable baby and became super attached to the squirrel. Before he knew it he had to ask for time off from work to take care of his new little friend. The best part about the situation for Alan is that he was completely surrounded by animal lovers that dedicated their entire lives to try and take care of them. His boss wasn’t even annoyed that he asked for the time off and granted it to him knowing that he would be using these days off take care of the squirrel.

About a week later, the little furry creature finally opened his eyes and Alan was there for the exact moment it happened. The squirrel could finally see and the first thing he would ever see in his life would be his rescuers face. Once his eyes were opened, their human/animal soul connection was taken to the next love. He loved this squirrel and it looked as if the squirrel loved him back in return. His original plan was just nurse the baby until it was ready to go back into the wild. However, as time went on their friendship grew and Alan was finding it more and more difficult to have to return the squirrel back to Mother Nature.

He decided that because the squirrel, was brought up inside a house, its chances for survival would most likely slim to none. So Alan quickly made the decision to keep the squirrel and make him part of the family! He ended naming the baby squirrel Rocky and began training the young creature how to act responsibly and not cause damage to the interior of the house. This turned out to be much harder than it sounds…
