Squirrels

Animals are all ace, but over the past few years I've become more and more attached to squirrels. I could watch the little bastards for hours. Red, grey, anything. What score would you give squirrels, with 1/10 being the worst, and 10 being the best?

I'm going to give them a full TEN.

Adorable to watch. Love to play "chicken" with cars despite being really, really bad at it. If you have squirrels on your property, don't ever feed them or they will expect you to feed them all the time and get violently angry with you when you inevitably fail them. 6 out of 10.

Screw a fluffy tail on a rat, teach it to jump & eat nuts and you've got basically the same thing.

Apparently the single worst animal to have a (realistic, ruling out hippos here) infestation of in your house. Very destructive.

Squirrels are a 9.6 very cute and sweet. We've had ones that would come and take peanuts out of our hands.

I know that they can cause issues but it's not they "know" that they are doing damage to someone's home. I would do more for our local squirrels but the creep next door and the cunt that he lives with hate all animals. We've had to call the city on them for having squirrel traps on his balcony. It seems that the 'haters' all have swinging baskets filled with sunflowers and other things that entice animals over and then scream about them being on their property.

I love all animals and despise all 'haters'.

True story. We lived in a share house and one housemate, Dave, was psychotic. He frequently stopped taking his medication and would rant and scream bible verses to the air. Once during a particularly bad episode John, another housemate and I figured we had to get him to the hospital but we couldn't coax him out of his room and into the car. While in his room I happened to look out his window and saw maybe the largest squirrel I'd ever seen. It was as big as a cat. I told John to look not saying what I was seeing. He looked and said, "Holy shit!" I then told Dave to look and he asked what he was to see. I said, "It's a giant squirrel looking for a giant nut and you're it." That relieved some of the tension and after a while we got Dave to the hospital.

:lol: I wouldn't rule out hippo infestations entirely. You can’t be too careful.

Anyway, I'm a city boy. "urban squirrels" are really the only ones I've ever known and urban squirrels are insane
I won't grade them since I try not to judge those with serious mental problems.

In New York, they will practically MUG you. They're very aggressive and will rummage through unattended belongings looking for food.

We've got different trees in our back yard that all have different sized branches. They form a canopy with our neighbour's trees into our yard and it's incredible watching the squirrels from an upstairs window, like watching them on a roller coaster, able to tackle both thin and thick branches. Sometimes our tortie will run up a tree after them but has to stop just as she realises the branch is bending, the squirrels continue to jump and run and then when they realise she can't make it any further, they turn round and start screeching. It's a squirrel Carry On!

My neighbourhood, Trinity-Bellwoods, is famous for its white squirrels. There aren't many and it feels like a bit of a blessing to see one. If you ever come her I'll take you on a white squirrel hunt (pictures only, please).

I love squirrels, but my parents HATED them. My dad kept a pellet rifle so he could shoot them in some vain attempt to keep them off their heavily treed property. I honestly don't know why he bothered, because other than digging up the occasional tulip bulb, I don't think they ever did any damage to the house.
