||Eleven months old|

||Kountze, Texas, USA|
is an awesome animal and a good little friend. When I am feeling
bad she will calmly lay on me for hours letting me stroke her soft fur.
But if I'm just being lazy, she knows it! She'll hop off me and go
racing through the house, usually to climb a wall and wait for me to
come get her. It's a little game we play.
Flying squirrels are usually nocturnal - that's why she has those big,
pretty dark eyes, so she is awesome company when I can't sleep at night.
But she even will come out for petting during the day when flying
squirrels would normally sleep. That is how I was able to get this
picture of her. She is very, very sweet and special to me.
