Day 6: Fun Fact About Me
I had a flying squirrel when I was in college. His name was “Sprocket” and he was quite the interesting pet. I don’t really remember why I decided to get such a thing, but I am assuming it had something to do with the “No Dogs or Cats” rule in my dorm. Didn’t say anything about flying squirrels.

Sprocket’s final passing was equally unusual. My roommate called me out of my Chemistry class because Sprocket was “having a seizure or something.” We rushed him to the emergency vet where they put him on the tiniest respirator I have ever seen.
