Found a flying squirrel

Neighbor cat was trying to eat him. Put some gloves on before handling and that was a smart move.. This little bitch wasn't playing and was going gladiator trying to bite me.

I put him into a shoe box under the tree he fell from and waited to see if the mom would come get him. After a couple hours.. no dice and he wouldn't have survived the night.

After awhile he settled down and seemed to stop biting. After some research I got him some forumla from the pet store and put him into my shirt pocket for awhile.

After that we're buddies and I've picked him up quite a few times without gloves now. I'm pretty set on keeping him. Estimated age is around 6 weeks.


Put me down BITCH!


Starting to realize I'm a cool guy.


Buddies now.



Pretty impressive considering the timeline of 8 hours or so from first pic to last. Now he runs right into my hand.

If he's not urinating or defecating properly, use a warm, damp wash cloth and massage his giblets. That ought to get fluids moving around a bit.

He's been a welcome addition so far. Going to spend a few hundred bucks on a tits cage for it.

Pissed once. Keep in mind its only been about 14 hours since I found it.

I'll give it a few hours but so far its pretty intent on just eating and sleeping. I have it hanging next to me on its heating pad with my shirt on it. He hangs in the pocket but just came out for the first time and crawled on me. Yesterday I had to force feed him. Today hes eating like a savage.

A quick bath probably wouldn't hurt him. Dawn dish soap is gentle enough for his skin, but will kill fleas and anything else crawling around on him.

You should buy a squirrel suit and go flying with him.

In all seriousness, that's pretty cool though. Good job for rescuing him from the cat. I hate cats.

Better yet, buy a moose suit and become his best friend.

I'm not nearly old enough to think of an R&B joke off the top of my head.

Laws in FL will let you keep him? In NC the law states you can't keep any animal that is native to the state as a pet, so I can't keep a squirrel in my yard, but I can keep a tiger. I can keep a lion, but I can't keep a bob cat.

They are unregulated in Florida. I could buy one at a pet store(and have seen them).
