Meet Twiggy The Water Skiing Squirrel

In 1978, a baby squirrel was rescued after being blown from her nest during a hurricane. Chuck and Lou Ann Best chose to take her in and make her a part of their family. The little squirrel adapted very well to her new home in Sanford, Fl.

Some of her favorite things to do were to nestle in Lou Ann's shirt for warmth and travel everywhere with her new family. She greeted the kids at their local roller skating rink and went on their camping and water-skiing excursions. She loved to sit on Chuck and Lou Ann's shoulders while they sat in the water. Sometimes, she would even take a dip into the river to get cooled off on a hot day.
