Jill the squirrel was just a tiny scared baby when she lost her home and family during the devastating hurricane Isaac in 2012. Luckily, she was rescued by a kind family who took care of her and helped her survive.

As Jill started getting stronger, her family noticed that she had developed a special bond with a white miniature teddy bear. She would not only cuddle with the teddy to ease her anxiety, but also clutch the teddy tight to her chest every time she had trouble sleeping!

Eventually, Jill managed to recover from her traumatic hurricane experience with the help of her teddy. She also started trusting her adoptive family and decided to stay with them forever!


Over the years, Jill’s love for her teddy has only grown stronger. Today, the 7-year-old Jill still refuses to leave her napping buddy even for a second. In fact, she proudly shows-off her teddy bear to her many Instagram followers through some ridiculously adorable pictures!

Apart from snuggling with her teddy bear, Jill also loves dressing up in cute costumes every now and then.
