    Whose house? I gather squirrels aren't well suited to houses, as they like climbing and tearing and nibbling things. Rending old furniture and intricate historic woodwork to shreds would be ideal for keeping claws and teeth in tip-top shape.

    Surely Prince Philip would just blows it's head off if he saw it in the house.

    Yeah, I can see it now. He'd mount Camilla, tooting his horn, gun cocked shouting 'Tally Ho!' as he chases it and Prince Charles around Balmoral Castle.

    I like all animals (except cats obviously) but if The Prince of Daftness is in favour there must be something wrong with them.
