haha.. they're SO stupid. I hate em'.. They're everywhere out here and are basically just an overgrown rodent.
lol i had a few coons playing in the back yard a month ago i think they were young though not sure where momma was, before my dog passed a few years ago i left a bowl of dog food out and found a coon eating out of it and he/she just gave me this look of you dont see me you dont see me :P
Neat! My grandpa from Arkansas adopted a baby squirrel who fell out of a tree when it was a little one and he nursed it back to health then it wouldn't leave so he kept it as a house pet it's entire life. Never put him in a cage - he had his own dresser drawer that he nested in cos he was also afraid of heights! He wouldn't go any higher than my grandpas shoulder.
My dad said after his father adopted the squirrel he refused to admit they ever hunted and ate squirrel while he was growing up!
D'aaawwwww so cute!
This worries me though. Squirrels have been known to attack people living in Virginia, and they usually target kids. If enough people feed them that they aren't constantly after food, they may act like this. But, who is to say that once the food supply stops that they wont begin harassing people and clawing at babies for food?
Be careful dude. When I was much younger and apparently knew no better I tried to feed a mature tame one in a tree and it just about took my finger off. Seriously. A guy at my work's son took care of one after Hurricane Irene that was that small. Their cuddly and all like a cat until they mature. Then, like a wood chipper that will cause a bad week or hand.
