When you’re a kid, it’s easier to make new friends. And when you’re an animal kid, it’s so much easier you can make friends across animal enemy lines.
A baby squirrel curling up with a litter of kittens is the subject of a video going viral on Facebook. Posted last week by Bethe Gettle, who also shared it with WGAL News Channel 8 Susquehanna Valley, Pennsylvania, the cute scene has more than a half-million views.
Here’s something you don’t see every day – a little squirrel snuggled up with a litter of kittens. Thanks Bethe Gettle for the video. She said this has been going on for about a week at her friend Dave Spittler’s home in Pine Grove.
Thanks for the video, Bethe!

The video’s popularity shows how much people like seeing this kind of heartwarming camaraderie. And people also want to know why this cat family is outside.
Many comments implore the poster to give these sleepy kitties a place to stay indoors. Some have offered to put her in touch with trap-neuter-return organizations who could improve the lives of these cats if they’re feral.
We don’t know the status of the kittens, but it does look like this squirrel would like to see them stick around. Who wouldn’t want to cuddle a bunch of napping cats?
