This Midwestern Orphaned Squirrel Now Demands to be Scratched
Everyone deserves some perks and that includes squirrels apparently. I say that because there's a squirrel in the Midwest who was sadly orphaned that now has demands. Video proves that means getting scratched by his/her human.
This special squirrel moment happened very recently in Nebraska City, Nebraska. The human who shared the video added the following:
Orphaned squirrel enjoys some scratches from his human parent.
That about sums it up. This baby squirrel now wants to be pampered.
Is it legal to have a pet squirrel in Nebraska?
There's no backstory about how this young squirrel ended up without parents, but it did inspire me to research whether it's legal to have a pet squirrel in Nebraska. Surprisingly, there is an answer. Squirrel Enthusiast says that's a yes as long as the squirrel was raised in captivity. I can't think of any state more captive than Nebraska.
But, wait, there's more. If you plan on having a pet squirrel in Nebraska, you need a special permit and it's $33.
