Over the last 24 hours, Jenna Marbles seems to have been on an emotional rollercoaster after finding a bird outside her house with a broken wing. The small baby, which she later named Timothy, was seen walking across the road with no sign of saving itself from oncoming traffic, so of course Jenna rescued him and brought him inside.
Over one of the best Snapchat stories we’ve ever seen, Jenna introduces us to Timothy, his broken little wing and the temporary nest she has set up for him while he recovers in her home. With blankets, a curious Peach and some sunflower seeds, our hearts weeped with Jenna as she spoke out how it may not survive the night so all she wanted to do was let it rest. But, thanks to some fans on Twitter, the story of Timothy the bird got dramatic very quickly.
Some people on social media were fast to point out how tiny and helpless the bird looked, and suggested that perhaps it was a baby trying to learn to fly for the first time when Jenna scooped him up, mistaking it for injured. She tried getting in contact with local bird sanctuaries and vets to see if they could help heal Timothy, but found out that the best thing to do was leave him alone to rest – or put him outside to find his mother.
Next, like a script in a movie, Jenna put Timothy outside and waited patiently over her Snaps to see if a mum turned up… WHICH SHE DID! Jenna’s videos show a big momma bird fly up to the box containing Timothy, proving that there was a strong bond between the two animals. In a video posted a little while afterwards, Jenna reveals that she released Timothy into the wild with his mother so she could “love Timothy from afar”. We were absolutely crying with laughter at this point, and it will go down as one of the most memorable Snapchat’s of all time. We love you Timothy.
