Squirrel Whisperer...



Some of you may know that I love squirrels and want to be a squirrel-whisperer when I grow up. I have had Chilean squirrels as pets for many years (called, "Degu") - and have flirted with many local squirrels - knowing that they cannot and will not come home with me (having a squirrel as a pet in Chicago is illegal, and likely unfair to the squirrel unless there are extenuating circumstances where they cannot survive in the wild).

We did rescue an injured squirrel last year, and kept him for a week while his leg healed, which is the closest I've come to fulfilling my squirrel fantasies. Alas, he hated us, despite the care and variety of nuts we gave him. We named him "Feral Merrill". We would say to him "oh you are so cute...we love you sweet Merrill!" and he would replay "go fuck yourself!!!" in squirrel talk.

Perhaps that is why I like squirrels so much. They look so cute...almost Disney-like, but they're actually bad asses with bad attitudes.

So today I saw one of the cutest squirrel moments ever, and so I had to share.
