Have You Brushed Your Squirrel Today?

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.

  1. I had a friend who had a pet squirrel. She liked it except for the fact that she had to take it in to the vet to have its teeth filed! Apparently their teeth grow continually and a cage diet didn’t wear them down sufficiently.

  2. That’s pretty interesting. That little squirrel was obviously really enjoying every moment of this. There is something so good about seeing positive interaction between humans and animals.
