About Jill the Squirrel

From rescue animal to Instagram star, 4-year-old eastern grey squirrel Jill has had a life full of adventure. The tenacious squirrel who fell from her nest during Hurricane Isaac in 2012 and was taken in by a loving family for recovery is now a permanent member of the clan. Her comic antics beg for social media exposure—whether donning a mummy costume, posing with her own squirrel-sized Whole Foods bag, or showing off her yoga poses, Jill charms and cuddles her way into Instagram fans’ hearts, with @this_girl_is_a_squirrel videos regularly generating 50K+ views each.
