Well, I guess this is a good time as any to mention that I have a squirrel.
We found him in the middle of the road, eyes barely open, and his mom crushed. We have been taking care of him for about 3 and a half weeks now. Since then, he has been able to open his eyes, eat solid foods, climb on people, and be friendly overall. Sadly, he can't jump. We took him to different vets in the area, but either they can't take care of him or can't treat him. I do hope he gets better and I do plan on releasing him back. As much as I want him as a pet, I believe it's better he learns to be on his own and live where he belongs.
His name is Chucky btw, short for Chucklenuts.

Bitch, you have a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a ******* squirrel as a pet. Take it.

Where does he go to the bathroom?
User avatar #108 to #80 - bronyfluttershy (04/09/2014) [-]
I sleep in the master bedroom of the house (long story) and in the bathroom there is a jacuzzi. It's a small, basic one and lay I it with a blanket, towels, and a heating pad. He is smart not to pee or poop where he sleeps, so I change the towels every few days. The only annoying thing is that he doesn't know he can't pee or poop on people; so there is a 80% chance you will get used as the bathroom.

That alone is reason enough for me to not want to own a squirrel as a pet

I have a squirrel too! He's a little violent, though. Maybe it has to do with the fact that he is out of his natural habitat. I don't know, I tried going into the woods and looking for his family, but he attacked every squirrel he saw.

Or maybe he is just a badass squirrel who doesn't take 			****		 from no one.

Please tell me you're from the Boston area and that he has a tie.
User avatar #107 to #62 - bronyfluttershy (04/09/2014) [-]
I'm not from Boston and I plan on making a tie for him with the color the bitter taste of defeat and lime.

He'd be so unused to dealing with basic needs on his own, since he has a place to stay and free food, he might simply die a prey to anything or starve. Keep him for his own good. It's only cool in movies to release a domestic animal into the wild.

Keep it...Just imagine him being eaten by an owl the night you release him.
User avatar #44 to #7 - iamaniceperson (04/08/2014) [-]
You should keep him. He dosen't really know how to survive outside since he lived here with you, and you won't destroy any ecosystems by keeping him.

Well his names bronyfluttershy obviously fedora wearing probably doesn't understand it would die!

I think you should keep him.

You can take my advice or dismiss it as crap but I worked for the ASPCA for years rehabilitating wildlife and domestic animals. Thats great that your squirrel grew up and survived infancy! He is lucky to have you. I do think you might want to consider keeping him like others have said. When found and raised from such a young age living a domestic life is all they know. Instinctively he will want to forage and things of that nature but since he most likely doesn't remember his time in the wild nor does he remember his mom so he won't know how to do these things and adapt to a domestic environment. I've raised many flying and regular squirrels and they adapt perfectly to domestic life. They get fat and lazy and never actually want to leave.

tl;dr It may be best to keep him since you found him so young. Best of luck~

We also found a squirrel near a tree in our front yard. Have no idea where he came from, we hadn't seen squirrels by our house for quite a while when we found him.

Hand rearing a squirrel that young must be hard, they need to be fed every two hours or something like that.

I know this isn't terribly likely, but how funny would it be for that thing to grow up and be a possum or something other than a squirrel. its pretty young...

Whenever I read a story like this, I think "'as adorable as that thing looks, I bet it isn't toilet trained and picking up its poop would suck".
