A Soldier and His Squirrel

From the Huffington Post, here is a super-sweet story of a Belarussian army soldier, Pyotr Pankratau, and the baby squirrel that he rescued. The baby Eurasian red squirrel was near death when some of Pyotr's fellow soldiers brought it to him, and the soldier nursed him back to health. Now, two years later, out of the army and driving a cab, Pyotr and Minsk the squirrel are inseparable. While Pyotr is at work driving his cab, Minsk stays with him, sometimes sleeping in a little bed on the dash--and I have never seen a squirrel sleep on its back like that!
