BANGOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. ? A baby squirrel is finding a home of sorts alongside a cat and her kittens in Michigan.

Eight-year-old Bailee Schultz heard the squirrel whimpering a few weeks ago in a wooded area of his grandparents' property in Bay County's Bangor Township. Stephanie Box tells Bailee brought her to the squirrel, which was under a nest.

Box says she placed the squirrel they call Bushytail with her cat, Oreo, who recently gave birth to five kittens. The next day, Box says the squirrel was nursing side-by-side with the kittens. They've also seen Oreo lick Bushytail.

Box says Oreo may not have fully accepted the squirrel, however, since she once moved the kittens but left Bushytail behind.

They want Oreo to keep an eye on Bushytail for a while.
