CHICAGO — Remember New York City's pizza rat? Well, Chicago has a pizza squirrel — and he's pretty cute.
Andrew Goodman, 33, took a photo of the little guy grasping onto a slice of pizza and generally being the coolest squirrel we've ever seen Friday morning in Ukrainian Village.
He saw the squirrel scurrying out of an alley at Bishop Street between Superior Street and Chicago Avenue with what appeared to be a piece of cardboard.
Once the squirrel hopped up the tree, Goodman realized he was in fact holding a slice of pizza.
"It was exactly like the pizza rat, except he was hopping," he said.

He couldn't get his phone out fast enough to take a video, but the photo has become quite popular on social media.
