We have recently updated our blog. Not many changes, but a new Template, new fonts and a Poll on our sidebar that gets your brain working on a Siamese question. The Poll ends on 2-28-14 at 8:11PM. Don't miss it!
So, today for TT, we are going to bring back the Rescue Story theme. This is a heartwarming story. So here is the story of a man who rescues an abandoned, baby flying squirrel from dying.
**There are no graphic images or videos in this rescue**
A man had rescued a baby southern flying squirrel that he had found abandoned on the sidewalk. And after several months of hand-rearing her, he has decided to keep her.
He has named her Biscuits and she has befriended his 2 dogs. Redditor told DogHeirs: "She gets along great with my dogs. I introduced them right off of the bat.. so they must have knew she is some kind of baby I was taking care of."
He also said, "My little doxy/beagle mix would growl at the other dog if he got too close. They are both enamored with her. They don't try to bite her at all, and she has no problem using them as a stepping stone to get where she needs to go. I just watch them because my rescue chiweenie gets over excited sometimes and I just have to make sure he's calm so he doesn't smush her. Other than that, they love following her around and will watch her non-stop if she is jumping around."
Here is the rest of baby Biscuits' rescue story.
He said,"I found her half dead, lying on the sidewalk in the Florida sun. I posted pictures on Reddit that day and had a bunch of know it alls tell me she would die, because I am not an animal rehabber...Well Biscuits is about 3 months old now and is super awesome...and healthy. Her favorite food is pecans and she enjoys jumping on everything and terrorizing the dogs."
jeff says when he had first saved Biscuits he wasn't sure if she would survive. He said, "I honestly did not expect her to survive through the first weekend."
She needed Around-the-Clock care and feeding everyday. He said, "It definitely was not easy. She was on me nearly 24-7 and needed food every 2 hours." The man fed her Esbilac puppy formula and some heavy cream.
Because Biscuits needed constant care, he took her to work with him every day for 2 months.
He said, "During the daytime, she will travel with me anywhere I go and pretty much just sleep in my shirt pocket. I am trying to potty train her..But thankfully she does not make to much of a mess for me.
The man said Biscuits has become quite attached. He also said, "If they are introduced to a lot of people when they are young, they are going to be friendly towards everyone..They bond very closely to the people who care for it."
She is now big enough to play with his dogs. He said, "Right now she is teasing the dogs running in circles around the couch."
For now, Biscuits is staying with her adopted family, but should things change, jeff had said that he will respect the tiny squirrel's wishes. He said, "If that day comes and she gets tired of hanging with the dogs and a person, I will take the necessary steps to prep her up for the real world."
I hope that was a good story for you all! If you would like to go to the real story, just click Here.
