    Did You Know That You Can Have A Pet Squirrel?

    This is an actual thing.

    If you didn't know, there are people in this world who have squirrels as pets.

    Yes, you read that correctly: squirrel pets.

    Some of these people let their pet squirrels crawl all over their heads. That's cool and all. It's really fine. Right?
