Squirrel gets own little ice cream cone

A friendly squirrel has become a regular at a North Carolina ice cream shop, and the store’s owners have even started giving their furry friend her own squirrel-sized ice cream cone.

Pam and Scott Martin say Putter the squirrel showed up at their ice cream shop last summer. After swiping an ice cream cone from one of their customers, the Martins decided to start giving  Putter her own tasty treat.

Putter now makes herself at home in a nearby tree and comes down nearly every day for a special scoop.
