Today on Reddit I found a heartwarming photo album that a gentleman posted about a squirrel he found. He took the little guy in, and his dad raised it.
Okay, so, my lovely boyfriend goes to school at up at RPI while I’m stuck down here in Manhattan. Thanks to him, I have just this morning discovered that, apparently, there is a fellow “lover-of-all-things-squirrel” who attends school with him. There is a website based around a charming little albino squirrel which has been graciously named “Alby.” RPI student Libby has done us all the wonderful favor of following, documenting, and simply enjoying Alby and her family throughout the RPI campus and has shared all of her findings with us and the public on her site.
Check it out! I found myself spending a fair amount of time surfing through the images, videos, and comedic stories that have been shared. Definitely a site worth seeing!
