Fulfilling a childhood dream dressed as a flying squirrel

I guess you can say you had lofty aspirations. 

What, nothing? My flying-squirrel pun didn’t take flight? Hmm… tough crowd.

In all seriousness, your dreams are hella rad and I’m glad you were able to fulfill them! Well, as best as you could without actual furry arm-flaps, anyway. Let’s get on that, Science.

A Bunch Of Hopeless Jerks Said This Baby Was As Good As Dead. That Makes This Even Better.

This is Biscuits. The little baby was found on the ground by someone just walking by on the sidewalk. Biscuits is a southern flying squirrel was half-dead, baking in the Florida sun. The man took her in immediately and began rehabilitating her. He was told by others that he didn’t have enough experience to save her and that she would die. As it turns out… they were all wrong. His love and devotion to this little squirrel saved her. Her recovery is one of the cutest things ever.

Biscuits was incredibly tiny when she was found.

Biscuits is now 3 months-old, cute as a button and full of life. Her favorite food is pecans and she loves to terrorize the family dogs. Basically… she is amazing.
