    Flying squirrels are very intriguing little creatures and we have a few of them here in the north although they are seldom seen because they are largely nocturnal.

    I've had those critters in my attic. Very annoying because they scratch around at night. Not easy to catch in a box trap, either.

    Interesting. Around here, bats have been known to get into the attic and even the common red squirrel or occasional pack rat, but I can't say that I have heard of flying squirrels moving in, perhaps because they are so rare and shy in this part of the world. Are there more of them where you live? Apparently there are 44 species of flying squirrels so perhaps the ones where you reside are bolder and of different habit.

    I wouldn't say they are very common. You could live your whole life here and never see one. The only way I saw them was by going up into the attic and shining a flashlight. They scurry around like rats, and about that size. I set a Havahart trap, but didn't catch any. Eventually they left on their own. It looks like where I live, it could be the Northern or Southern variety. I don't know which I had.

    I'm guessing that perhaps your attic served as a nursery and once the young were mobile, they returned to nature. Glad that they left, though. We had a red squirrel nest in our roof one year. Hubby had pulled loose some flashing in an effort to rescue a baby swallow that had fallen out of it's nest at the peak of our log cabin roof and gotten trapped between the roofing and the finish of the underside. He left it that way for a time in the event another fledgling got in trouble when he wasn't around to rescue it. An opportunistic squirrel got into the roof itself (we have no attic) and had her babies in there. They crawled around between the milled log walls and the finished inside 2 x 4 walls until they were old enough to move back to the wild. Drove me bonkers too, lol.

    After the squirrels had been in the house, the violet-green swallows did not return, for squirrels are predatory of their nests. Our previous cat used to keep the squirrels away from the house and leave the birds alone, we guessed, because we fed them, and so they belonged to 'us', not him. I was always curious that our cat did not bother our baby rabbits either when I was raising them. They were raised inside enclosures but he could have easily gotten inside. Interesting, the interactions between various species, our own included.

    Fixation

    Psychoanalysis
    .
    a partial arrest of emotional and instinctual development at an early point in life, due to a severe traumatic experience or an overwhelming gratification.

    NM: I'm worried about you. Did you accidentally or deliberately kill a tree climbing rodent or did you somehow derive great pleasure from interacting with Sciuridae while growing up? You do know there's a neurosis for many different behaviors? Squirrel fixation is a good one.
    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    maybe he wants to scare them away because his garden is overrun by squirrels - you know how they can be a pest chasing birds away from feeding stations
