Stubby, my flying squirrel, has been very playful the last few days. I wonder if it is because I cleaned out his cage? He had a huge stash of nuts and food in his box, as you can see here. He is curled up, as you also see.
During Tropical Storm Fay, he seemed pretty unconcerned. I haven't detected any change in behavior yet, but the flying squirrels are very good a predicting bad weather. They will start to build up their nests about three days before bad weather hits. Hurricane Ike will pass by in a few days, and we have been boarding up all the buildings. Hopefully it will do no more that give us some wind and rain.
