Let's face it - Everyone loves them (except for maybe bird-lovers whose feeders keep getting pilfered).
Why haven't we tried to domesticate them yet?
They seem incredibly intelligent for rodents, at least rat-tier. They're certainly not endangered, they're native to almost every temperate climate on Earth, and from what I know, they don't harbor any human-transmittable diseases or post any threat to us or other species.
Some Grey Squirrels can grow to be almost as big as a small cat. And speaking of cats, there have been cases of domesticated mother cats "adopting" young squirrels, nursing them and everything, which then grow to behave much like cats, even so far as purring when a cat would.
Would it be a viable option to use surrogate cat mothers to breed a species of domesticated squirrels? It may even lead to more "low-energy" squirrels that don't need to constantly burn energy and fly all other place when they're not busy.

Never have I felt so safe to have a weapon in every room, and a 60 pound dog with a menacing bark. But fuck me if that didn't scare the shit out of me. She didn't bark when the dish dropped, so I wasn't -too- concerned, but still enough to check out every room.
I think the cup in the bathroom just fell over, but I really don't know what it was.
