Harrison not only gave Bella a home, but she also gave the baby squirrel a family. Subsequently, Bella shared her home with three adopted siblings called Moe, Larry and Curly. During her recovery period, Bella lived with the trio in a shelter in the Harrison’s yard.

Because of her young age, Bella stayed with the Harrisons during the winter for her own safety. Meanwhile, she grew strong on a diet of fruits, vegetables, formula and – her personal favorite treat – nuts. However, Harrison didn’t domesticate any of the squirrels.
