    Default Squirrel purring? Kinda?

    Whenever Iím close to Jimmyís cage he does this sound. I donít know quite how to explain it. Itís a low ďhumphĒ, multiple times while Iím standing there. Kindof a rolling humph, humph, humph. Iíd like to take it as a term of endearment. Any thoughts?

    I happy I read a previous thread about not getting near him with food or eating bc he has chastised me and turned his back. He also has pushed my fingers away. I wonít do that anymore.

    I am learning so much on here, so thanks everyone.

    I just love that sound. I call it the oink. Sounds like a little pig to me. It’s a curious, happy sound.
    My Susie always made that sound. Even as an adult she made that sound.

    By the way, some squirrels do purr. It is the sweetest thing ever.

    Jimmy is adorable.
