5-Year-Old Teaches Squirrel to High Five

Occurred on June 11, 2022 / Westfield, Massachusetts, USA

Info from Licensor: "The squirrel in the video, Mimi's, has been coming to see me since 2019 when she was just a baby. She now sits on my lap and lets me and my kids pet her. I call her and she comes running or I open the door and she is waiting there for me. I sit outside and people walk by and do a double take. They ask me "is that a squirrel?!" and "Is it wild or your pet?!" I have even had people take pictures! One day, my 5-year-old was outside feeding Mimi's and my 10-year-old daughter called for me and said "Alivia taught Mimi's to give a high five for a nut!" And sure enough, she did! I feed over 15 squirrels, including Mimi's 4 babies that were born about 3 months ago, but Mimi's is definitely our favorite and most loved squirrel! We have such a special bond with her. I call her my therapy squirrel because she helps me with my anxiety or when I'm stressed. I never miss a day seeing her. Whether it's 10 degrees or 110 degrees, I'm out there feeding her. She is the best."
