Ten-year-old Maxi has had a lot of free time on his hands. As Bavaria reopened beer gardens this week, he had already put it to good use making sure his cuddly friend didn't miss out.
Maxi and his mother's friend, Corinna Schmitt, have been leaving food out on the miniature picnic table, complete with tiny beer mug which they fill with nuts, seeds and raisins.
The curious squirrel, which they have named "Madame" now visits Schmitt's balcony at least once a day.
Schmitt has even made an Instagram account for her, which has seen several people commissioning Maxi to make similar tiny benches for them.
