a friend of mine found a baby squirrel several months ago. it was so tiny it could be held cupped in her hand. she only kept it for a short while, just long enough so it could be fed and cared for until it was strong enough to live in the world on its own. it was kept in the house in a small cage for that period of time.
i suppose it can be considered a pet as when she let it go it really did not go far. it lives in her yard and will often scurry onto the carport when she is outside taking care of the plants out there. just a quick dash on and around, and, then off again, almost as if it is saying 'hey'.
no, but I did feed squirrels. They ran around my parents front yard. I threw nuts, would ing them.scurry around grab the nuts, sometimes run up the trees. The squirrels almost always hid them.I enjoyed watch them.
I have kept young squirrels as pets for a time until they were old enough to be released.
Number one rule when keeping a squirrel as a pet: unless you want it to run away and never come back, do not walk around outside with your squirrel unless it is securely fastened to some kind of harness or is in a traveling cage.

I had this nasty squirrel eat away at my pumpkin this morning?? I am on the 4th floor in an apt. complex so the squirrels must be pretty desperate for food? Any suggestions on how to get rid of them or deter them just until halloween is over at least

Is there anyway to keep squirrels away!!Weve tried cages, bought mothball smelling sacks of "squirrel away", boo balloons. So far nothing works, though the predator eyes keep them away for a few days, they return after they ascertain they'r
