In Minsk, Belarus one taxi cab driver carries a squirrel pet with him all the day while he is on his job. “Lately people were telling us that they were given a ride by some guy who had a squirrel inside his cab, so we went to the taxi cab company and they confirmed they have a driver with a squirrel”, says the local journalist from Minsk. See a bit more inside about this guy and his squirrel:
“Usually it sits in his pocket while he drives”, tells the journalist, “we met Piotr, the driver, near his house. He was resting from his night shift and we immediately asked him – so where is the squirrel?”.
“A few seconds later the squirrel was coming out of his pocket”. “The driver told us he carries the little furry creature all the way thru his daily routines – while he is shopping, while he is walking around and of course while he is driving his cab”.
“I was working in Spetsnaz before”, says Piotr, “and soldiers brought me a small and very weak squirrel. It was unconscious. I has taken a few worms out of his mouth and eyes. Then I started feeding him every four hours with baby food from the sprinkler.”. remembers Piotr. “Later he started it by himself from my tea spoon and drink milk. So we served together – he was always on my bosom”.
“But where does he lives at home? In the cage?” – “No he doesn’t have any cage. He sleeps with me. He prefers to sleep on my chest. And he eats with me too – he prefers nuts, bread, fruits and seeds”.
“I only resigned from Spetsnaz three months ago. So I drive taxi just three months and take him with me all the time.”
So if you ever go to Minsk and go on the cab – call them and deman the cab with Spetsnaz squirrel!
