I never knew there were so many different kinds of squirrels–red, grey, black, striped; long ears, short ears, bushy ears–I guess I should’ve asked Mr. Nature. And it looks like all of them have what it takes to make nice pets.
The squirrels around our home are very playful, and they’re used to us, so they don’t mind running rings around my chair while I’m sitting in it. We especially like to watch them when they decide to fight to the finish against a twig. We don’t like to watch them when they come into Patty’s garden and dig it up.
And I do think I would draw the line at letting my pet squirrel run around inside my refrigerator. Some of us are fussy that way.
