Squirrelton: As the Squirrel Turns

Squirrelton’s Mayor Nutter has developed the eastern shores of the town. Current population statistics: Number of residents- 1,345; Number of squirrels- 56,012.

“Little Squirrelton,” as the east shore is called by locals, hosts a Starbucks that enables literary-minded Simdents to stay up into the wee hours of the morning. One local playwright is penning a script with a working title of “The Taming of the Squirrel.”

Taking advantage of Squirrelton’s plentiful rivers, new fishing docks and a chowder house have been built. Older residents such as craftsman PJ remain suspicious of it and have written a series of disgruntled letters to the Squirrelton Inquirer’s editor. “Squirrels don’t even like seafood,” they argue.

They’ve not too much to complain about, however, as Mayor Nutter also has built a squirrel-friendly park. Eastern Grey Park sponsors an annual writing contest called “If a tree falls in Eastern Grey Park and no one is around but squirrels, does it still make a noise?” and runs the highly successful adopt-a-squirrel program.

I am really enjoying how this looks, I love the scenery and the rugged terrain. And yeah, I don't think I've ever heard of squirrels eating seafood, but I wouldn't doubt they exist.

Thanks, guys :)

According to Squirrelton residents, squirrels like shrimp and lobster, but not trout or grouper. This information is anecdotal though so I wouldn't swear by it ;)
