Reader, meet Putter. Putter is a squirrel living in Holden Beach, North Carolina, who really, really loves ice cream.

Squirrels: just like us!

But unlike the other squirrels, if Putter wants ice cream, she doesn't have to go dumpster diving. Because Scott and Pam Martin, who own Fantasy Isle Ice Cream and Mini Golf in Holden Beach, feed Putter two mini ice cream cones every day like she was a regular customer, WWAY3 reports.

Let's hope she remembers to tip.

She doesn't pay for the ice cream. Because she's a squirrel. But she's clearly a grateful customer. Check it out:

Apparently the relationship began somewhat unorthodoxly, with a theft. "She came down and just got friendly with customers and ultimately took one's ice cream cone back up the tree," Scott told WWAY3.

But now she's become part of the family. "You can call her name and she will literally come out of her nest in one of these big trees and hop her way down to the roof to ultimately to the rail and waits on her cone," he said.

Her preferred flavor is vanilla but don't hold it against her.

They feed her a tiny, squirrel-sizes cone with a mini-scoop of vanilla or no sugar added ice cream, twice a day. She sounds like a charmer, which explains how she got this sweet deal.

"She’s quite the little character," said Scott. "She actually plays golf with the kids. She will run around the golf course and play with the golf balls. She’s a cute little mascot. We are blessed to have her."

Playing golf, eating two free ice cream cones a day and still maintaining her figure? This squirrel is living the dream.
