Zowie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zowie
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gray Squirrel
Home: Florida, USA
   This is my baby Zowie. I got him from a friend of mine when he was around five weeks old. He had fallen out of his nest and had been cornered by some dogs. Luckily though, he didn't suffer any injuries.When I got him, his eyes were still closed but after two days, he opened them and eventually could see his new mommy. When he got older, Zowie used to play by hopping around my room and shaking his little head all around. He also loved to have me chase him around the room and wrestle with my hand. Zowie man lived in my room for five months over the winter time, but when spring rolled around he was ready to get outside a do his squirrel thing. I was so proud of him when I released him outside; he had the natural squirrel instinct and didn't need any help from me. He built his first nest in a tree right in our backyard and stayed out back for a while, but eventually he moved out front, where after a year and two hurricanes, I still see him, as he still likes for me to spoil him by feeding him walnuts.

    What makes Zowie so special is that he brought so much joy into my life and gave me one of the best and most valuable experiences of my life. Zowie is the most special, beautiful, and most precious squirrel ever and I love him so much!
