Furry friends in southern Italy
We live in Basilicata. Recently, we have noticed that we are sharing our roof space with some furry friends. They look like squirrels, but have longer tails and white cheeks. Our son, who is a zooligist, says that squirrels are not really native to southern Italy and that they are more likely to be Polecats, Pine Martens or Ferrets. They are nocturnal and seem to be causing no problems for us so far. Does anybody else have any experience of anything similar?
