We’ll start off with a warm ‘n fuzzy: the cat-attacked flying squirrel who’s overwintering in rehab is doing quite well and should be releasable come spring. Meanwhile, he likes tasty greens such as broccoli, among other nutrient-rich delicacies he’s offered nightly. (Flyers are nocturnal.)
I called the transferring facility to make sure I didn’t duplicate their report, only to discover that they hadn’t reported it because “we never do X-rays.” They’d had the bird over a month and based their assessment of nonreleasable on nothing more than a cursory physical exam. Don’t even get me started on that, okay? Needless to say, I was not a happy camper, and it’s taking all my restraint not to name and shame the facility.
Have a good Thanksgiving, and remember that there will also be only one update in December.
