Pet Pals TV Host meets Twiggy the Water-skiing squirrel at the Indianapolis Boat Sport and Travel Show. In case you are wondering, gray squirrels can swim but don't do it much. Twiggy has a little red life vest on her back.
Most squirrels they fine are rehabbed and released into the wild, but this current one just wanted to hang around. It is now the personal pet of Tabatha, the gal in the story. She calls herself Twiggy's sister.
Twiggy is world famous and makes around 20 appearances a year. You can See Twiggy perform at the Boat Sport and Travel show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
Twiggy is not strapped onto the skis. Twiggy stands there on his own and when he gets tired of it, he jumps off onto Tabatha!
