Ponytails aren’t just for… horses anymore. An abandoned, two-month-old squirrel is now living in the hair of Abby Putterill, the daughter of the owners of a wildlife sanctuary in Zimbabwe.

The squirrel, named Hammy, “was playing with Abby and he managed to crawl into her hair. He seemed to make himself at home and still does it now,” Abby’s mother Debbie says.

Given that squirrels usually curl up in nests, the choice of dwelling isn’t exactly surprising. It is extremely cute, though.
