That Tickles!

On our recent trip down south I discovered my cousin's twin daughters had a pet baby squirrel. It was only hours old when they found it and they took turns bottle feeding it.
I believe this is Sarah with "Duke."

  1. I hadn't realised squirrels could ever be tamed!


  2. Happy Pink Saturday Rita Sweetie...
    Now how cute is this? I love that smile and how sweet to have a pet squirrel. Do they still keep him inside?

    Sarah looks so sweet with Duke sweet friend. This is just adorable.

    Now did you hold Duke as well?

    Rita I hope you have a wonderful Memorial weekend sweetie. Now when are you two popping back out this way to Arizona? I would so love to see you.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  3. Looks like the girls have a fun friend.

  4. Hope it never gets loose...probably won't survive in the wild. Very nice candid shot Rita.

  5. A very pretty little girl, Even though it may be a pet, I am not sure about squirrels. They can turn mean.

  6. Cute little girl with her pet squirrel. I gope they are careful, my uncle use to hand fed squirrels until one bit him.

  7. Gee, all the comments had some element of Duke's story in them. The little girl's dad found the squirrel as a newborn. They fed it with an eye dropper not thinking it would make it. It did make it, and now spends most of its time in a couple of trees in their backyard. Duke comes in at night to be fed and sleep in a small pet carrier. I stayed away from it because it does bite on occasion more from excitement than aggression. Motive aside, a bite is a bite and I prefer squirrel in a good stew myself.

  8. Oh my gosh that is so adorable! You take lovely portraits! I never get good people shots!
