Every once in a while you run into a story that needs to be told.  A story that reminds you that there is still plenty of good in the world amongst all the negative noise that we hear from the news. This happens to be one of those stories.  Be ready to have your heart explode with love, as it is a rescue story at its finest.

The hero in this story is redittor iamcleverhoneybadger, a photographer who was shooting some pictures in the woods one day when he came across a baby squirrel.  The squirrel was curled up in a little ball and was barely moving.

Most people would have left the poor squirrel for dead, but this photographer decided he had greater plans for this squirrel.  He was taking him home.

He took the baby squirrel and placed him in the hood of his jacket.  He then put him in the cup holder of his car to let him warm up.

Once home he placed a heating pad, some paper towels and what looks like a little nest in his sink and let him warm up a bit.

Turns out, he was quite fond of his little nest!  The squirrel started to get a bit healthier, so he gave him a name; Apple Moonbeam!
