I have a squirrel named Secret and he was rescued by a tree service where they cut down the tree and he was the only one left. So I got him on my birthday, and I have wanted a baby squirrel for a year before I got Secret. I love this squirrel so much, he is the best pet that I could ask for. He's still a baby, but he eats all sorts of nuts and leaves his crumbs all over, but I don't mind- I love him! He also eats mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, carrots, grean beans, water chestnuts, cantalope, grapes, sunflower seeds in the shell along with many other things. He is very protective- if he doesn't know you he doesn't want you to touch him. He climbs all over the couch, loves to make jumps onto things, and he makes claw marks all over me and his dad. We keep him in a bird cage when he's not out, which he has already gotten out of and I found him curled up on a fleece blanket on the couch. He sleeps funny, on his back with all fours in the air with his and his mouth open!! He's the Specialist Squirrel Ever!!!!!

I have a wonderful 4 month old female squirrel named Ms. Suzy. She was rescued out of the cold rain in the woods (on the ground). She is my pet now but is soon to be released. They are wonderful animals but I have a feeling they will live happier lives in the wild.
