Jill the squirrel’s Instagram account, ‘This Girl Is A Squirrel,’ has over 600k followers, but has recently gained even more popularity thanks to Jill’s preference of sleeping with a teddy bear. The squirrel was rescued after 2012’s Hurricane Isaac, and has since become a viral star. While its Instagram page features many adorable photos, the internet has become obsessed with any involving Jill’s tiny teddy bear.

According to the Instagram page, Jill is a “vegetarian, parkour expert whose only fear is the vacuum. But, she loves every Starbucks napkin she meets.” Apparently Jill is also potty-trained, loves fashion and posing for the camera, which makes its viral fame come much easier. Luckily this squirrel has lived a great life since being rescued, and thanks to its teddy bear, napping comes easy.
