Many people in the world own pets. Apparently, 68% of households in the United States are home to one of these animal companions, whether they be a dog, cat, fish, or something wonderfully exotic. Given the majority of people in the nation are pet owners, it’s safe to say that there’s a lot of love for animals here. With that being said, what would you do if you discovered one had suddenly taken residence in your house?
We’re accustomed to the idea of strays wandering in through cat flaps and trying to win over the hearts of the people who live there. However, we can’t say we’re too familiar with stories of animals climbing in through 10-story windows and setting themselves up on someone’s bed.
However, that’s precisely what happened in a New York City apartment a few years ago. The resident was shocked when he learned about his new roommate, especially when he realized it was a squirrel. Considering these animals typically live in the wild, why was this one now living in his apartment?
Usually, the worst that can happen when you leave a window open is that you get flies or other insects wandering into your room. It’s very rare that another animal decides to come in and scope out the place, especially when you live on the 10th floor of an apartment building.
However, this squirrel was apparently determined to seek refuge in someone’s home, hence their dedication to climbing so high and sneaking in through the window.
