Sabrina enjoyed a little bit of sunlight this morning while I got a good look at her nasal area. Swipe to see the rest of the photos. 😍

The sutures are still intact, and her "new face" looks wonderful. She ate pretty well this morning, and most of her nighttime munchies that I left out for her during the night disappeared. I have different meds to either dry up her nasal congestion or moisten it, and so far I've chosen to moisten it. I hope that will help alleviate the pressure buildup and give her sutures a better chance of success. πŸ™

We hope you all have a wonderful day! Please drive safe and send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. 😊

Sabrina's afternoon back at home has gone well. Swipe to see more photos. 😊

She's had her formula, probiotic yogurt, meds, and much-needed rest. I'm hopeful that the next few weeks will go smoothly, and that her pain will be minimal with those meds. Dr. Emerson was in disbelief that Sabrina is a wild squirrel, and at times I am also. She understands so much, her intelligence continues to amaze me. In time she'll learn to eat softer solids, and may not need to be syringe-fed someday. 😊

The last photo is the oak tree in the backyard that @seymour_the_squirrel has played in and around for the past year. Someday, with a lot of planning, that tree will be enclosed with enough space inside that both Seymour and Sabrina will have their own safe & secure tree to enjoy with space to run and forage. It's a huge task, but when I see Sabrina stretch & yawn on a tree limb again (just as she did the first time I saw her)... it will be worth it. And of course Seymour will enjoy it too. I'm still early in the brainstorming phase, but I will figure this out. 😊

Goodnight everyone, thank you again for caring about this precious girl. Please send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. πŸ€—

A Central Park Squirrel.

Gray Squirrel
(Sciurus carolinensis)
I read an article once that mentioned that these little critters are found in a number of parks throughout America basically for human entertainment!
A paper published by a professor from University of Pennsylvania namedΒ Etienne Benson explained that the history of these guys dates back to the 19th century.
Squirrels roamed the woods naturally, used as a food source for frontiersmen. Seeing a squirrel in the city was rare. In one such case an "escaped pet squirrel in New York City, circa 1856, drew a crowd of hundreds according to one of the city papersβ€”which called the squirrel an "unusual visitor."
Philadelphia was one of the first cities to release 3 of these guys into Franklin Square; providing food and shelter.
From there the "Squirrel Trend" began to spread.
Central Park first began releasing the squirrels into the park in 1877 and there the population grew to what it is today!

Stuart Little the dwarf squirrel is the definition of #cutenessoverload. 😍

I don't know much about dwarf squirrels, I'd defer to @cindyflyingsquirrel and others. I know they're a "special needs" squirrel with some parallels to a child with down syndrome. Stuart seems aware of his surroundings, yet he's in his own world from what I observed in my few minutes with him. They are more difficult to care for than a typical squirrel (which are already more than a handful), and usually don't live long. Being in the hands of a vet, especially Dr. Emerson, gives Stuart the best opportunity to thrive. I look forward to seeing him again someday! 😍

While @sabrina_the_squirrel was in the back getting her post-op checkup, I got to babysit Dr. Emerson's incredibly adorable dwarf squirrel, Stuart. 😍

I'll be home to my own baby boy shortly. 😘

Swipe to see photos of Dr. Emerson's dwarf squirrel, Stuart Little. 😍

I'll have more photos and a few video clips of my time with Stuart. While Dr. Emerson was in the operating room with Sabrina to check up on the surgery, I was fortunate to enjoy the company of the cutest little boy with the softest fur I've ever felt! Dr. Emerson brings Stuart to work each day, I don't know how she gets anything accomplished... I'd just play around with Stuart all day! πŸ˜‚

Dr. Emerson is pleased with the way everything looks, and left me with Buprenex in case Sabrina continues to be in any pain. If her nasal/facial reconstruction can stay together for at least a week, that'll be very promising towards it lasting long-term. Time for Sabrina to rest up and heal. 😘

Happy birthday to @cindyflyingsquirrel, we hope you have a wonderful day! 😁

Good morning from this grumpy girl. 😍

She did attempt to munch on some of the foods left with her in her carrier overnight, but she's not too happy right now. I think the pain meds have worn off. Fortunately we're heading to Dr. Emerson's shortly for a checkup and she'll make sure Sabrina isn't in pain if that's the case. Her nose reconstruction is still intact, I hope it lasts. πŸ™

We hope you all have a wonderful day, please drive safe and send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. 😊
