Everyone Thought He Should Give Up On Her… But His Compassion Saved Her Life.

Strolling along on a particularly hot day in Florida, Jeff Longo spotted something unusual lying on the sidewalk. To his surprise, it was a newborn southern flying squirrel. Knowing the creature was as good as dead if he left it out to bake on the hot sidewalk, Jeff decided to take him into his home and care for it. He found out later that ‘it’ was a female, therefore named her Biscuits.

Biscuits’ chances of survival were slim without her mother, but Jeff was determined to save her. This is her incredible story:

Found as a newborn, Biscuits was incredibly tiny.
