Hamster-like Squirrel

We were awakened last night by a scratching sound. It turned out to be a small, hanster-sized rodent with a huge bushy tail, even bushier than the typical squirrel. The coloring was that of a grey squirrel, no striping of any kind. It still resides in our home (we think), but it seems harmless to us.

Can you get a photo of the animal?
