For the record, I don't think it was actually chasing him, but Tucker thinks it was. He also swears it had red eyes.
The incident led to a rather in depth discussion on zombie squirrels and whether or not a human bitten by one would turn into a regular zombie or a squirrel zombie. It was my contention that there was no precedence for species transference in zombie lore, so a victim would just become a regular garden variety zombie. Jeremy insisted the victim would be a hybrid, but admitted he mostly liked the idea because he wanted to have a fluffy tail to curl with and nap on. So we have agreed to disagree.
I don't like putting my collections all in one place. I like to scatter things throughout the house so that guests stumble upon them by surprise. Sort of like Tucker and the squirrel in the park.
I wonder how many people out there have a squirrel wishlist?
And perhaps most importantly, where do you fall in the zombie squirrel debate?
