The Secret Squirrel Service

I CAN HAS PARDON?There are two kinds of squirrel in Washington, DC—the kind you vote for, and the kind you don’t. And a recent Washington Post article traces the fascinating history of America’s fuzziest bureaucrats and their love/hate relationship with our nation’s capital.

Hunted to near-extinction by the start of the 1900’s, squirrels were imported into DC by civic leaders hoping to add charm to city parks.

By the 1950’s, the squirrels held a veto-proof majority, brazenly devouring plants and digging up gardens, including the private putting green of President Eisenhower. But Washingtonians love them all the same; reached for comment, a representative of the Squirrel Lobby said "Eep."

Live, Damn You! LIVE!!

"NOOOOOOO! (puff, puff) DON’T LEAVE ME!! (puff, puff) 

I HAVEN’T HAD WALKIES YET! (puff, puff)  AND IT’S ALMOST DINNERTIME! (pounds chest) 

AT LEAST TELL ME (puff, puff) HOW TO WORK (puff, puff)  THE CAN OPENER!! (puff, puff)  NURSE!! I NEED 50 CCs OF ADRENALINE AND A CHEW TOY, STAT!!"

... and don't forget the machine that goes 'ping!'

There was (sigh) nothing we could do, Amanda L.

Sender-Inner AS 33 fell in love with Oliver.

After several visits Oliver would run to the front of his cage and stuff his nose through the bars. He’d cry when she left.

When Oliver was scared and he would hide under his bed.

Then, AS 33’s brother adopted Oliver.
