Tree Rats (Squirrels) are rodents too but they sure are tasty chicken fried with some cream gravy on pile of rice and some green beans... fluffy baking powder biscuits. I do not think they are "cute". I've had too many gardens damaged by tree rats. The gardens I used to put in were not for fun but to provide food for the lean winters.
I need to bake up some biscuits.... and rice... and green beans (Southern-style)... and a pot roast. No squirrel. We've only seen one squirrel since we got out here last summer. I think it was lost.
