Well, this is one way to get people off an airplane quickly. I would’ve suggested a rabid raccoon or squirrel because I think they’re pretty scary. What? You think squirrels are cute and harmless? You’ve never had one stalking your window, have you? Or had one enter your house through your window during the summer because you’re landlord didn’t provide your student home with a screen for the summer? Okay, I guess I understand why you don’t understand the scary factor of your mere city squirrel.
We may be a little obsessed with cats and sloths (okay, really obsessed), there’s still room for more adorable animals in our hearts.
With that, we may be quickly falling in love with the Suberian flying squirrel. Also known as the Russian flying squirrels, these cutie patooties can be found in Finland and Estonia. The animals are typically quite shy and can sleep for days. Since they prefer the night, it’s quite difficult to catch the little critters in action during the day.
I don’t know if it’s their general petiteness or their large Disney-worthy eyes that makes me want to cuddle with these cute creatures.

A few years ago my family and I occasionally fed this cute little squirrel we named Clark that kept visiting our backyard. That is, until the SQUIRREL ATTACK. Okay, well it wasn’t all that dramatic, he just tried to break into the house one day when the door was open and was looking a little more rabid than usual. Luckily, I was wearing protective Ugg boots and was able to fend him off.
That’s why I sympathize with this innocent bystander who was attacked by a psycho squirrel. To be fair, everybody knows you NEVER put your hand out to a wild animal to pet it like it’s a soft teddy bear. In that way, the dude kind of deserves it — especially because he keeps petting the squirrel after getting bit.
The message: don’t befriend wild squirrels.
