Meet the pampered pet squirrel who watches TV, wears face masks and loves avocados

Meet the pampered, hand-reared pet squirrel that watches TV, wears face masks and enjoys snuggles on the sofa with her rescuer.

Christina Reyes, 35, has spent two and a half years and $10,000 (£7,500) raising little Thumbelina after she was found in a tenth-floor apartment.

Thumbelina and another baby were found in a pile of leaves and twigs on a homeowner’s bed after being left there by their mother.

Reyes said: "My husband and I knew that we never wanted children. Thumbelina is our baby."
