A fox cub and a baby squirrel have survived in a wildlife hospital by striking up a loving friendship.

The pair were lucky to find their way to the hospital after the baby squirrel fell from its nest and the tiny fox was yanked from its earth by a cat.

They were both very poorly when the arrived at the hospital but a brainwave idea to pair them together in a cage worked wonders.

Anne Brummer of the Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue Centre in Camberley, Surrey, said: 'The fox wasn't eating at all and at the end of the day a fox is a pack animal that needs company.

'We decided to put them together and they struck up a friendship. The fox started eating immediately.'

The pair were together for three weeks and the squirrel - named Cyril - had soon grown enough to be released back into the wild to find for itself.

The fox - called Sammy - is running around in its own secure run and the wildlife centre say he should be ready to be released in a fortnight's time. It has suffered an injury to an eye, thought to have been caused by a bite from the cat, but it is hoped it will make a full recovery. 

Sammy was found by a couple whose cat had managed to drag him from its earth and went home with the ten-day old cub in its jaws. The three-week old squirrel was discovered lying at the foot of a tree by a mum and a young child out walking.
