This short story starts oddly enough - with a man having befriended an intelligent squirrel, who developed his smarts through watching a TV the man never bothered to shut off for years - and goes straight to Weirdsville from there. It's all written very matter-of-factly, and it's all over with very quickly, so much so that a day later, I'm still wondering how to categorise Mr Tucker & Me: A Short Story by genre.
Ahh, screw it. I'll just go with the category of "I liked it."
3.5 Law Enforcement Approved Crimes Against Property for Mr Tucker & Me: A Short Story.
