A squirrel has become a man’s best friend in Poland. 

A man living in north west Poland found the critter under a tree when it was small and near death. 

The man helped the squirrel and took him back to his home to recover. 

The owner says the squirrel, named Pitek, has become accustomed to hanging out with him.
