    Default Can squirrels eat cheese?

    Squirrels are rodents, rats are rodents, rats eat cheese, can squirrels eat cheese? I hope so, because Tessa just stole a slice of cheddar off of a cracker while my back was turned, raced off with it and growls and lunges at me when I try to take it away from her. Will it hurt her?

    Cheese is fine for squirrels. In fact, we used to try to get them to eat cheese as a source of calcium and protein (before the days of HHBs).

    That is good to hear. Because she DEVOURED it and I am pretty sure I heard her burp when she finished it. Which leads me to my next question: do squirrels burp?

    Yes, but they're supposed to say "excuse me" afterward.
