In a scene that could be taken straight from a Disney film, two adorable animals have struck up the most unlikely of friendships. A red squirrel named Tin-Tin and a 13-year-old cat named tiger have become inseparable after the little squirrel was rescued as a baby. Decan Andersen, 38, from Denmark, adopted the cute little rodent when the then one-month-old squirrel fell out of a tree four stories high and into his back garden.
Upon seeing Tin-Tin’s injuries – a deep and nasty chest wound sustained by hitting a branch on the way down, Decan initially decided to leave the squirrel alone, hoping its mother would come to the rescue. However, after coming down from the tree and inspecting Tin-Tin, she swiftly left the youngster again, seemingly deciding he was beyond rescue.
So Decan nursed and cared for Tin-Tin ever since, adopting the little creature and bringing him indoors as a pet alongside Tiger, and Tiger’s now dead sister Coco.
Decan went on to describe how the pair’s relationship has blossomed in the years since, detailing what the partners in crime get up to together and how Tiger fiercely protects his now best friend.
