Can a squirrel be a pet?
Squirrels have not been domesticated like cats and dogs, and therefore do not make good pets.
Squirrels were protected in wildlife conservation and exotic pet laws. Today, it's illegal to keep a squirrel as a pet in many states. Animal experts believe this is a good thing, because squirrels are wild animals that, despite their cuteness, should remain in the wild.
