"Yes, Squirrels CAN be pets. Please note: I would never suggest that a person TAKE one from the wild, but if fate drops one in your path, and you and the squirrel are willing to walk a ways together, then enjoy it. Not everyone who finds a squirrel will be able to locate a wildlife rescue organization before the little critter dies from cold and lack of nutrition. Peanut is a 7 week old Western Gray that was brought into our home by one of our cats late at night. We can only guess that he was shoved out of the nest by a sibling, found by the cat, brought into the home, found alive by my middle kid, and then nursed back to health by me. I guess I am lucky to have a degree in Veterninary Assisting, because we were provided with a rather extensive education on emergent situations. I am NOT a vet, and there is only so much I can do. So, I turned to the internet, and found everything I needed to know within a very short time. He has become quite an affectionate little critter, and is a delight to come home to. We are all very fond of him, and I will be acquiring a license to keep him. There is a reason that these creatures come to us, and so long as we are dedicated in their care and happiness, then enjoy your little bit of wildlife, and take many pictures ~*~"
