I was feeding cows this morning and the cat brought in what I thought was a big deer mouse or a small rat. I tried to catch her to get it away so I could see what it was but couldn't. I did get the tail after she had the rest eaten. The tails 3" long and 1-1/2" wide and flat with soft hair about 1/2 inch long. The only thing I can figure that it could be is a flying squirrel, but I haven't seen any of those around in years. And then this was 4:30 am, are those squirrels out and about at night? It was still alive when she brought it in.

They are nocturnal. At least here in New England, there are more flying squirrels than any other type. You just don't see them because of their habits. The woods are loaded with them.
I have been told there are two different species of them. They are cute but can be very destructive.

They are nightime critters. You will seldom see then during the day.
