Squirrels aren't usually the type of animals that people keep as a house pet but this family in Finland decided to take one in after they found him badly injured. They named it Arttu and he lived with the family for 6 happy years before he passed away.

The baby squirrel was found injured by the side of a road

“Squirrel’s claws grow all the time so we had to occasionally cut them because he couldn’t wear them out naturally”
