HOLDEN BEACH, N.C. – A lucky squirrel gets two small cones of ice cream a day at her favorite North Carolina ice cream shop.

WWAY reported that Putter the squirrel regularly frequents Fantasy Isle Ice Cream and Mini Golf in Holden Beach.

The shop’s owners told the station that the squirrel started showing up last summer and hasn’t left since.

They started giving the squirrel mini-cones of ice cream with a scoop of vanilla. Now, she comes out of her nest twice a day for one.

“She’s quite the little character,” said owner Scott Martin. “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.”
