A few week's back we admitted into our care a Northern Flying Squirrel that was attacked by a cat and carried into a house. We rarely see these little, wild neighbors as they are nocturnal. They don’t hibernate in the winter but they may group up in tree cavity nests to stay warm. A good way to support cavity-nesting animals like these squirrels is to promote and maintain snags. If you have a hazardous tree on your property, for instance, think about hiring an arborist to transform it into habitat rather than removing it.
