Is there an Elvish word for squirrel?

According to my latest information from Helmut W. Pesch, Das große Elbisch-Buch, Bastei-Lübbe 2009, there is no such word.

My best try is the Quenya word nornoyaulë (literally "oak cat", from norno "oak" and yaulë "cat", formed after a German dialectal word).

peccuvo (Quenya): Squirrel, lit. "nut-hider" [pec 'nut' + kuvo 'hider'] (source: Parma Eldalamberon #22 2015).
