This Tiny Squirrel with Her Own Tiny Ice Cream Cones is Already Winning Summer

We are ALL Putter the squirrel.

If you’re anything like us (and we suspect you are), you’ve felt like this year’s wait for warm weather has been interminable. So now that the temperature has finally crept up, you’re spending the bulk of your time outside in what can only be described as seasonally-ambitious clothing while drinking margaritas and eating ice cream in the sun.

Well this squirrel FEELS YOU.

At the Fantasy Isle Ice Cream & Mini Golf in Holden Beach, North Carolina, there is one squirrel that is so psyched it’s summer that she is hitting the little links and eating tiny, just-for-her ice cream cones on an almost daily basis. Nicknamed “Putter,” the squirrel has become something of an unofficial mascot and unexpected marketing campaign.

According to the ice cream shop owners Scott and Pam Martin, Putter has become quite the regular. “She came down and just got friendly with customers and ultimately took one’s ice cream cone back up the tree. Now you call her name and she literally will come out of her nest and hop her way down, and waits on her cone.”

The Martins have fashioned Putter her own miniature cones (okay technically they’re just the bottom of normal cones, but still!), and she even comes down and plays golf with the kids. “She’s a cute little mascot,” says Scott. “We’re blessed to have her.”
