Red Squirrel is a Squirrel Critter Companion.

It can be found in the Plaza on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sunday mornings from 12 AM to 12 PM. Its favorite food is Peanut, and it likes Fruit. It will reject any other food.

It can be collected as a Companion by feeding it preferred foods. It must be fed a minimum of two times before it will be added to the Critter Collection (the maximum number of times it must be fed is random). Critters can be fed multiple times per day, but only the first successful feeding will drop items and count towards collecting them or Dreamlight Duties to feed them. Once collected it is added to the Critter Collection.

It can be equipped while outside using the Wardrobe menu inside the Inventory, under the Companions category. Once equipped, it will follow the Player as they move between Biomes and wander nearby. Companions can also be photographed in unique poses using Photo Mode, or housed in the Cozy Companion Home.
