Word on the street is that many people consider squirrels to be on the same level as rats. I disagree — I love squirrels (this might change once I own a house with a garden). They’re cute, they’re funny, and you can teach them how to water ski. It appears as though I’ve always had a tree full of them in every yard I’ve had, so they kinda seem like pets. Sometimes I feed them scraps of food or fruit that’s gone soft (but not too much at once — I have been involved in a near mob-scene that I’d rather not discuss).
What do you think about squirrels? Tree-climbing rats, or balls of furry cuteness? Garden-wrecking pests or funny little friends?
