Jesse the Squirrel


Here he is, live and in color. My newest pet (who, by the way, ROCKS!). He absolutely adores me. I know, I know, who doesn't.

Ummmm.....don't tell anyone, but I think it's actually because I'm the one that feeds him, but, still, he loves me. And I love him.

If you wanna play along, go to Candid Carrie's to play!

Later,

Mama Dawg

34 really cool people who give a rat's patootie:

Jen

I want a pet squirrel!! How adorable!! So, is he litter box trained? Can you litter box train a squirrel? Will you let him go after he is stronger or are you planning to keep him?

Mama Dawg

He is cute. He's not litter box trained, yet. I've had him less than a week. He was a rescue squirrel. And, yeah, you can litter box train a squirrel. There's a lady that lives in my city that did it with her squirrel.

I'm not sure yet on keeping or letting go. We'll see how he feels about it. I'd like to get him back in his natural habitat.

The lady that lives in my city that raised one let him go after a year or so. She noticed he kept watching the squirrels outside and she let him go. He lives in her yard all the time and still will come inside her house and visit with her, but he mostly lives outside now.

We'll see.

Jennifer and Sandi

THAT IS THE SWEETEST THING I've ever seen!!!! That is AWESOME!!

Would you mind if I linked to that? Let me know. Would love to share that one!

Mama Dawg

Sure, go ahead and link away!

scargosun

Sooo Cute! I loved how his little claws/fingers kept splaying out like a baby does with their fingers.

Rhea

Jesse is adorable! I love how he keeps his eyes on Light of your LIfe while going to town on that food!


And, I love the forest fairy pictures on the right.

Does Jesse sleep inside now? What do you do with him during the day?

I love your accents.

Mama Dawg

Yeah, he sleeps inside. I have a cage that he sleeps in and stays in while I'm at work. When I get home, I take him out and let him eat and play with him. He likes to ride on my shoulders while I do chores around the house.

Thanks! I love that pic of her. I just took those on Sunday.

Trooper Thorn

Yep, that's better than a crow baby. And your squirrel will likely stay, while my unorthodox bird pet has abandoned me. Sniff.

Mama Dawg

Awwww....I didn't know he left. I'm so sorry!

I wanna be Jesse's squirrel.

(do you get it ... the song) I don't really want to be Jesse's squirrel but everything has to be a song, right?

Mama Dawg

Thanks, Carrie. I needed the laugh!

Lula!

"Oh goody, my boobies are gettin' on the TV." I love it.

And I still say you have the best accent. Why doesn't mind sound that lilting and lovely???

Jesse rocks.

Susie

I would rather you have him as a pet than to have him in my garden. So, you are providing a great community service:-)

LiteralDan

Well now I forgot my comment, and all I can think of is "I wanna be Jesse's squirrel". Thanks a lot, Carrie.

My son wants to get a squirrel now, but one with a puffy tail like we have here. You'd think we were a squirrel restaurant and he was placing an order with me.

Sara

I want a squirrel! He is so cute! He's like Alvin and the Chipmunks.. oh wait.. they're not squirels.. hence the name.. Alvin and the CHIPMUNKS..

Captain Dumbass

Ok, Jesse the squirrel is undeniably cute, but Mama Dawg and Light Of My Life's accents?! I'm in love. LOVE!!!

Teri

How cute! I need to make sure my daughter doesn't see this or she will start begging me for a squirrel.

jenboglass

I love him. My parent's have squirrels and my son like to leave them treats then hide and watch them come grab them. Maybe you could find him two brothers and they could form a band kind of like the Chipmunks. I hear squirrels are less diva like.

The Nice One

Oh my gosh...that is hysterical!!!!! He is so cute.

oº˚ Queen Bee ˚ºo

We have squirrels all over our front and back yard. They are so cute -- my dog don't like them to much -- I guess he thinks they will get us. lol -- He's so cute enjoy him. Thanks for playing along much love.

Hippie Family...

ok so long story short, my best friends brother shot a squirrel with his bb gun and she tried to put a rainbow bright bandaid on it and it bit her finger and would not let go and she had to go to the hospital SQUIRREL ATTACHED to get it off.. and now she's deathly afraid of them...
cute thou...

überburber

no, way - I seriously didn't know that was possible. will a polaroid of him be showing up in your header soon?

Nik

Well if he isn't the cutest thing!!

I love how he flexes his hands...err paws?...claws? What do you call a squirrels hands?

Z's Mom

You feeding Jesse is hands down one of the CUTEST things I have ever seen....ever!!! I love squirrels....I didn't know they were so trainable....

Middle Aged Woman

Oh my gosh! Now every time I read your posts I can hear it in your adorable accent! Y ou know what I noticed? That Light of Your Life said, "Child!" when you commented about not feeding your children!

Lynn - the piggy bank painter

He's so cute! Can't wait to read more of his life story : )

Heather

I've never seen squirrels as "cute" until I saw Jesse. I'll never look at squirrels the same way again. He's adorable!!

Mekhismom

This is amazing. But if you let him back into the wild will he really be able to fend for himself? He looks pretty domesticated.

Lauren

Now THAT was fun. I have often questioned if my itty one, Sadie was part racoon. Hmmm

jenboglass

I keep coming back to watch this over and over. My son loves this.

Cocotte

As annoying as they can be with the birdfeeder, I still think squirrels are adorable.

Ron

I can't believe I finally got my ass over here to see this!!!

OMG...he is the CUTEST damn thing I've EVER SEEN!!

I just want to SQUEEZE him!!!

And can I just tell you how jealous I am? I want one!

I LOVE YOU JESSE!!!

Jennifer

Oh Dear God--I LOVE this!! One of my greatest joys in life is feeding things (human and animal babies) with bottles. What a sweet little squirrel and I can tell you're taking really good care of him. Good for you! Please post more updates soon!!
