    Ruby only has two things (right now) that she will growl and fight with me about. Hers pecan and a Ritz cracker.

    Sammy HATES feet. He growls and attacks them. Lucky for me he canít bite too hard or Iíd probably be missing a toe.

    the other day my little flyer ace was out, and my baby sister had dropped half a piece of bacon on the ground, and he found it. he carried the thing all the way back to his cage as i chased him down, but i got it from him. it was twice the size of his head! i confess that sometimes he does get a little human food, like a small bit of chips and stuff.

    Beaecheykeen, you have resurrected a very old thread -- see the date in the upper left corner of the post before yours? 2017
    Nevertheless, if anyone needs to get it off their chest, reduce their guilty conscience, or whatever -- you can confess right here all the bad stuff you "accidentally" let your squirrels grab out of your hand ... confession is good for the soul!

    Ok then........
    Once leaving Dr Emerson's office with Conker, I stopped at a place called Ritters, it's a custard icecream stand and it's YUMMY well I bought a milkshake and drank it all 45 minutes home. Once Conker is back in his room I still had some of the shake left so I tipped the large cup on its side so Conker could have a lick. To my surprise he claimed in up to his waist 😝 I had a heck of a time getting him to back out he wanted the whole thing
    I couldn't get it washed off it stayed on him for a week, his hair was spiky like a hedgehog 🤣 however every time I picked him up he smelled delicious 😁

    Similar scenario for me and my dwarf. Leaving Dr. Emerson’s office with my little guy who had been very sick and not eating well she told me to let him have whatever he wanted to eat. I stopped at Pollo Tropicale for my dinner. Lo and behold I put a piece of chicken in his bin on the way home and he devoured it. That chicken became a constant in his diet from then on.

    Tuff at this point really hasnít had any people food...but I do believe he is a caffeine freak, when he is out of his cage he will go over to the Keurig and put his little feet on each side of the dispenser and lick it. Itís not hot but he loves that thing. He will also lick any coffee drops left on the bottom. My coffee cup stays way out of his reach. He will also lick the top of my Diet Mt. Dew can. I have to keep it out of his reach also. I was sitting in the recliner picked up my van started to take a drink, on my arm out of no where he came running. Got to my hand and I had to pry him off the can...all you can do some days is laugh.

    I figure no matter how much time has passed, this will always be a fun topic. If only ya'll could see how my little Icarus reacts when she KNOWS I have a Little Debbies peanut butter creme cookie.

    I can only imagine what a caffeine fueled squirrel would be like.

    He is fast that is all I can say...sometimes I think he can see sounds..every time he does this I get the vision of Hemi off of the move Over the Hedge. I can see the instant it hits his soul and he gets that extra fire power. All you can do is sit down and let him burn himself out...Name:  B23B5343-57A8-47D3-83EA-EFB2AB976B68.jpg

    I guess I'll try to get away with deviating somewhat from the original thread also and simply mention that like Tootsie & Frankie; Sammy loves to "play bite" toes also. I keep reminding him that he's a Squirrel, not a Podiatrist but it makes no difference. He acts as if he doesn't understand me!

    OH MY GOSH PEOPLE!!!! I am laughing so hard at this - thank you so much, we all needed it! I especially like that some of the professional rehabbers are confessing on here.... and Dr. Emerson is guilty of instigating some of it! Maybe the patients are working together to brainwash her about snacks!

    So, let's say I'm a new squirrel owner, and after reading all this, here's the foods I understand are now on the list ..... noodles, Cool Ranch Doritos, Belvita breakfast crackers, dip, vanilla ice cream, Cheetos, cheese, cereal, sour cream potato chips, butter, Sun Chips, Ritz crackers, Goldfish crackers, Little Debbie Brownies AND Peanut Butter Creme Cookies, vanilla cupcakes, Oyster crackers, tortilla chips, coconut oil, pecans, bacon, poptarts, peanut butter cookies, fig newtons, milkshakes, chicken, coffee, Diet Mt. Dew, tea and .... chapstick, inkpens and lower extremeties.

    Tinkerbelle could add several more, based on the notion that California Ground Squirrels in the wild will eat just about anything they can get a hold of, or bribe off a passing motorist at a rest stop (their specialty!). Similarly, I stopped buying grain-free dog food when I realized that my dog regularly helped himself to the livestock feed......

    I have to say that Tinkerbelle's cryptonite is Tortilla Chips. We have finally limited her to only getting them when it's time to go back in her cage after her daily house-time. It works like a charm. Still not sure who's training who however.....

    I put a full cracked coconut in a bowl outside to dry (had soaked it). It was in 2 pieces, the top was about 1/4th. Of course I forgot to bring it inside and this morning my husband said our jr. was carrying that huge coconut across the lawn. Carrying, tripping, carrying...
