Shelby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Shelby
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Squirrel
Home: Georgia, USA
   Hi, my name is Shelby. I came into this world in a very bad way. My momma was killed by a cat when my eyes weren't even open. I was scared, cold, and alone. A real nice person found me and took me to an animal hospital. At the hospital I was warmed up, given fluids, and much to my stomach's relief, I was fed. I was taken home by my new momma two days before Thanksgiving. I was warm and had a dry, safe place to sleep every day. I was always being cleaned and had a very nice furry creature to help watch out for my safety. On Thanksgiving Day my eyes opened and for the first time I was able to see the world around me. The fuzzy creature was a Redbone Coonhound named Avery. She watches out for my safety. The momma I got to know looked a little different than me, but I love her just like I would my very own momma. I am grown up now. Funny how it turned out the worst day of my life actually turned into the best day of my life.

    I have tried many times to go back into the wild but it turns out that I just feel better in my warm, fuzzy creature-filled home. I love nuts - they are my favorite. My favorite game is running around jumping from one piece of furniture to the other. And Avery is still my friend, and watches out for me, even now that I am all grown up. Times are good, and I like it here!
