Squirrel in Tree

(Toledo, OH)I have a love-hate relationship with squirrels due to my interest in keeping my birdfeeders well stocked. Yet even someone like me - who gets irritated at the squirrels who defeat my supposedly squirrel-proof feeders - can appreciate the hardiness of these rodents.

And despite the fact that squirrels can carry diseases harful to humans and pets, they still remain in the category of "cute." There is really not much difference between a squirrel and, say, a Norwegian brown rat, but we seem to tolerate the presence of squirrels much more readily than any other rodent, save rabbits.
