“My cat brought in from outside a completely unhurt, and very angry, flying squirrel,” writes John S.

“I managed to catch him and after he realized I wasn’t going to hurt him, he decided my hand was the best place for him to curl up and sleep….”

“…and he is now back to his home! I did some quick research, determined his age and made sure he was old enough to fend for himself. Kept the cats in overnight as well just in case.”

Her Day Was Off To A Flying Start

IMG_6011You shuffle into the kitchen at 7:15am, barely online. Pop on the iPad tuned to C.O. Reach for the coffee maker, reach for your coffee mug, reach for your Flying Sqwerl, -uh, wait. What? “I’m used to having critters get in the house when the weather gets cold but wasn’t expecting a Flying Sqwerl in the kitchen this morning” says Properzombie.

“I resisted the urge to keep him, feed him and name him but snapped a few photos before I helped him outside. Perfect start to my day.” [Just like the can says. -Ed.]


This is Not Your Average Cute

Barely a handful o’ Japanese Dwarf Flying Squirrel. Prob’ly best handled in small amounts, ’cause they’re basically one of the most powerful substances known to man ever.

Who Remembers That Toy?

Hmm, what was it called? The twisty, fuzzy, magic worm with googly eyes and an invisible string that you slid through your fingers to make it look like, well, kinda like this!
