Just wanted to share this interesting photo of my great grandpa (not certain which one, I think it's Raymond Callahan) showing off his pet squirrel to a little girl. (Maybe a cousin?)

I think I am unable to see the image because of the profile's privacy.
For some reason, I can't see the photo--and I'd really love to, because I've never seen a pet squirrel. I hope you can find a way to share this picture, which really sounds wonderful!
I'm not sure what's wrong. I can see it. You still can't? I don't think it has a privacy setting on it. Any advise on how to make it visible?
Can you see it now?
Yes I can see it now...Very cute!

What wonderful photos--thank you for sharing!

This picture of your great grandfather holding a squirrel shows a fascinating side to your great grandfather, since pet squirrels have not been a common thing--and it seems to indicate he might have raised this squirrel from a very young age.

I'm also wondering if the car and its license plate might provide clues that could help confirm the identity of which of your great grandfathers was the squirrel owner.

Wonderful Family Treasure ! .. I had the pleasure of raising a squirrel, (injured and adopted from a veterinarian who treated the baby) from its infancy to adult hood. They make good pets, are playful and funny. They also have voracious appetites, front teeth that constantly needed to be in use or they will grow to long and impair its ability to eat, extremely sharp claws and they love to burrow into a pile of paper or towels to sleep in. Usually pet squirrels return to their habitat when they reach adulthood.

The family is enchanting and their life experience ,"squirrelogy" timeless.   

C'est Bon Magnifique !
