He Decides To Save The Life Of This Baby Animal When The Odds Were Against Him

 

Jeff Longo, from Florida, was walking along one hot summer day and noticed a tiny little animal on the path in front of him. It turned out to be a newborn squirrel, still blind, just 3 centimetres long. Jeff realised that he couldn’t just leave it to die on the hot pavement. He took the little animal home to care for it. Jeff named it ’Biscuits’.

Many people told Jeff he didn’t stand a chance of keeping Biscuits alive — he knew nothing about animals. But his faith, patience and care meant Biscuits not only survived but became Jeff’s best friend.
