Your photos: This squirrel is a Gators fan



Squirrel_gators reader Peggy Shafer shared some amusing photos of her family pet Frisky. Shafer says her family "adopted" the squirrel after it was separated from her mother during a wind storm in May 2008.

"I raised her on a bottle until she was able to be put back in the wild. However, she decided she didn’t want to leave. My husband took a small tree and built her a box to sleep in."


Frisky appears to be a Louisiana State University fan, too.


Shafer found Frisky a Christmas outfit last year. "Of course, I had to let her open one of her gifts early," she wrote.


Shafer says Frisky comes and goes as she pleases during the day but always comes back to her box to sleep at night.
