How would you know, have you been a squirrel?I like feeding my squirrels on the Arboretum. It gives me something to do. For a while it gives me a sense of power knowing they need food and I can give it to them. But after a while, it becomes as shallow as everything else in life. They may be fluffy and cute and entertaining to a degree, but theyre nothing more than that. I don't mean anything to them and they don't mean anything to me. Whereas people do. They have feelings and real emotions. People can be hurt and they can have their hearts broken. That never happens to a squirrel.
