You’d think squirrels would make good pets. They’re quick to learn, they’re friendly–what’s not to like?
Except that, really, the squirrels around here seem perfectly happy outside and it doesn’t take much effort to make friends with them. They’ll eat out of your hand. I don’t know if they’ll ever sit on your lap… unless they’re living in your home.
I just wish they wouldn’t chew the wires on our cars.
