Baby squirrels are one of nature's most dear gifts for a "rehabber." They are affectionate, east ti feed, playful, full of mischief, intelligent and develop a fierce love for their human moms... but easily become wild when they are ready. Not to mention cute as all get out. This story and video is wonderful and brought tears to my eyes.
