This Adorable Squirrel Is Served Tiny Ice Cream Cones Daily at This Shop

Putter the squirrel is a furry regular at the Fantasy Isle Ice Cream & Mini Golf shop in North Carolina

He’s friendlier than some domesticated pets!

We’ve heard of scoop shops sneaking some soft serve licks to dogs, and Starbucks even has the “Puppicino” — but have you met Putter the ice cream cone-loving squirrel? At the Fantasy Isle Ice Cream & Mini Golf shop in North Carolina, Putter — or Putt-Putt — is a regular and comes by almost every day for her squirrel-sized treat.

The Martins, who own the ice cream shop, say that they discovered this squirrel with a sweet tooth by accident.

“A lady came back in and said, ‘There’s a little squirrel out there that I offered a little bite of my cone to, and she took off with the whole thing,’” Scott Martin told ABC News. “First thing, I offered to get her a new cone. But then Putter kept coming back for more.”

Now Putter has become the unofficial shop mascot, and customers always ask for her.

“She’s quite a little character,” Martin said. “She actually plays golf with the kids. She’ll run around the course and play with the golf balls.
