Hi folks! We rescued a baby southern flying squirrel from our barn cat in the beginning of April. He was not injured thankfully.
We fed little Rocky with a mixutre of esbilac, greek yogurt & eggs until it was old enough to eat solid food. It has bonded to us and we absolutely love the antics of this little critter. I say it, because I'm not entirely certain if I have a girl or a boy. Any of you have experience with sexing?

Here is a video of Rockzilla.

Warmly,

Welcome :multi: and you are REALLY lucky because a cat's saliva is deadly to flyers and they don't even need to bite them! For sexing see:

Oh wow! I didn't know that cat's saliva is deadly to them. We are very lucky indeed then! Our cats live outside in the barn, so Rocky is safe inside with us. :-)
Thanks for posting the thread on sexing! This place is a bit overwhelming! Lots of information (which is a really good thing!)

Also Rocky. I’m thinking he is a boy from the sexing post.

Time will tell. Once they reach puberty (and it varies greatly) they will be scrotal (Puffs show) some of the time and non-scrotal most of the time. Just don't pull at any cotton balls you might thing are stuck to him. :twisted:
