At first is all giggles and good times, but when she grows up the squirrel will shoo away guys and attack her friends, and she'll be yelling 'fark you, squirrel! You ruined my life' and then the military will be interested in her ability to control the squirrel, and all of a sudden a whole shiatstorm between our world and the squirrel world will unfold.

Hey look! It's another fake story put out by parents who own a business being referenced in the article! Let's all read this endearing story that's not the least bit plausible and pay attention to which animal sanctuary the parents own!

I agree squirrels are rats with bushy tails and a better PR department.

The part they didn't write?

Baby squirrels are unable to urinate properly as they are a little undeveloped in this regard. If you hand-raise one, you must "stimulate" it several times a day to order that it can piss. Don't do that, and they die. I don't know what age an African squirrel needs to have this done, but it will have been a fair part of two months.

This isn't abuse, it just may look like it:

For Abby's sake we sure do hope that the little critter is potty trained.

Interesting... they thought of that angle, but failed to ask the question.

It's a made up story. They don't need to ask questions, the whole thing is a lie to hawk their animal sanctuary.

You basically have to do this with very young kittens too.

Hope she wasn't planning to go to prom.  Nobody's going to take Squirrel Girrel.  She'll have to go to college overseas to escape the legacy.

Yes, I had to do this when I found one of my cats at 9 days old screaming for her mama cat who wanted nothing to do with her.  You also have to stroke their backs after giving them a bottle of formula so they can burp.

That's the entire point of the Ryot website the story comes from--to influence people to take action with respect to the news they read by giving to charity or signing a petition that relates to the story presented.    http://www.ryot.org/about

If you don't like the principle behind it, no need to visit their site, plain and simple.  It's not like they don't have a "What's Ryot?" banner at the top of their site very clearly indicating where you can go to learn more about them and their methodology.

After a hurricane I was out with the dog, when the dog picked up something that squeaked. It was a baby squirrel that got blown out of the nest. I patted the dog and told her to find more. She ran around and found two more squirrels. One was dead, and another died two days later (I looks like it broke it's spine in the fall) But one was just fine. We had to bottlefeed and "stimulate" it to poop/pee, but she came out pretty good. I named her Triella and kept her on my porch. She was very friendly, I'd play with her all the time. and she'd sit on my shoulder and eat nuts (and try and bury them down my shirt). Then after a year she just up and died. Not sure why.
