Best. Websites. Eva.

I’ve been so mesmerized since discovering these sites that I can’t even remember what led me to them in the first place. All I know is that my life will never be the same.

First up: Because of this site, I desperately want to find an abandoned baby squirrel, cuddle it back to health, dress it up in fun little costumes, and live happily ever after. And then have someone compose a Broadway musical based on it.

Being totally adorable, that’s what!

That may seem a little bit nuts (pun totally intended), but think about it: It really doesn’t make sense that squirrels are not a commonly domesticated animal. We domesticate just about every other rodent, so why on earth don’t we domesticate the cutest ones? People own rats, for crying out loud! Have you ever seen a rat tail?!? (No, not this kind, but they’re equally disturbing.) They’re disgusting! Squirrel tails are much, much more adorable, yet we don’t keep them in our homes. I’m sensing a new career in the works: Squirrel Whisperer Extraordinaire!

Anywho, while perusing The Squirrel Board, I came across a link for another amazing Web site: I know. You didn’t think it could get any better, right?

Consequently, I’m now the proud owner of this Beautiful Gray Squirrel Clock by Rosemary Millette, this Gray Squirrel Welcome to the Nuthouse Tin Sign, as well as this Portly Squirrel Garden Stake. And about a dozen other squirrel-themed items.

OK, so I didn’t really order all that squirrel crap, but I did find some squirrel earrings that I’m actually going to purchase and wear with pride. I’m also now inspired to stock up on various squirrel T-shirts, which I’ve been meaning to do for a long time anyway.

As you can see, these discoveries are clearly life-altering. Seriously, when I look back on my life 20 or 30 years from now (when I may or may not be a crazy squirrel lady), I will define it as and And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

    I asked Courage Wolf for his opinion on whether or not you should get the earrings… his first response: “CONFORM TO THE ESTABLISHMENT. DESTROY IT FROM WITHIN.” I thought that was a little confusing, so I asked again and he answered, “F WHAT YOUR MOM SAYS. YOU DONT NEED A COAT.” I think that’s a pretty clear answer that you MUST spend $$ on squirrel earrings over any other “necessities.” Don’t disappoint CW, I hope you make the purchase!!!!

    Oh man. The landlord just said there’s no way we’ll ever be able to have pet squirrels.

    I don’t know what’s funnier:
    “I found a baby squirrel. Now what?” Well, I don’t know, LEAVE IT THERE???
    “Please don’t add your squirrel to the list of dead babies who were fed scalded milk.” Possible punishments seem to include losing your license to “rehab wildlife”, having all squirrels removed from your premises (I wonder if they come back to check the yard every so often), or -heaven forbid- being labeled a “zealot” by the administrators of “”.
    Or maybe:
    “Keep in mind that having a pet squirrel is not legal in all states.” Well why on earth not? Sounds like Zach has found his first big class action suit.
