Farewell Comet

Christmas night, after all the excitement was done, DH and I sat down to watch some TV. Then a movement across the dark carpet caught my eye.

After turning on some lights, a bit of investigating, and general chasing around we found an intruder. Luckily for him, we caught him before one of the four dogs did.

I realize some of you may call him vermin, but you got to admit he's cute vermin. A flying squirrel.

Since the lows were often in the 20's or below, and he is so cute, I couldn't bring myself to throw him out in the cold so I found a hamster cage and decided to keep him until things warmed up a bit.

Well, the forecast for the next couple of days is mild and clear so we finally took him out about 1/2 mile from the house and let him go.

I'm going to miss him, he would take grapes and peanut butter from my hand and keep me company in the wee hours of the morning.

Ungrateful thing never looked back.

You were very kind to care for it so well (and that little varmint was VERY lucky). Good on you.


If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.
