This Squirrel Befriended Some Humans For The Most Ingenious Reason

My college was so well-known for its squirrel population that they even considered changing the mascot to a fearsome squirrel. In all that time, though, I’ve never made friends with one. They were more likely to scare me by popping out of a trash can on my way to class than anything else.

Scott and Pam Martin, however, have come to love their squirrel friend, Putter, who comes to visit every day and gets treated like a queen.

The Martins own a local business and they realized that they saw Putter show up on their outdoor patio regularly. The customers loved her, so they didn’t try to shoo her away.

Now, they just call her down from her tree and she comes scurrying. Find out on the next page what makes Putter so excited!

This squirrel, just like all of us, screams for ice cream! Check out the video below to watch a precious squirrel chow down on a teeny-tiny ice cream cone. You know you want to.


Those little cones are too cute to handle. I love that they’ve made Putter part of the family. Share this with all your animal-loving (and ice cream-loving) friends!
