Love my mornings with this little angel. 🐿️ This time tomorrow, I'll be with #sabrinathesquirrel working on how to convince her to come home and get the help she desperately needs. We'll have more options this time, and hopefully after Tuesday more permission as well. Soon Sabrina, soon. 😘

Midnight snack for my baby boy, I can't believe how many bites he can take of such a tiny piece of pistachio. 🐿
Sunday night feels right around the corner with the amount of things to do before leaving, so Seymour and I are spending as much time together as possible. Hopefully I'll be back soon, but I realize how brilliant Sabrina is and that her rescue could be quite daunting. Regardless, I'm going to miss this little angel so much. I need to get him a baby monitor so we can video chat. πŸ˜‚

Goodnight everyone, please send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. 😴

I've got one more night with my baby boy before I head back down to Miami to help with Sabrina's rescue. I'm trying to cherish every second with him as I don't know how long it will take to bring her home. πŸ™

Thank you so much for your kindness, compassion, and support. I am sending out Thank You notes tonight and tomorrow. There are several networks of beautiful souls going out of their way to help figure out ways to help Sabrina, and many people worldwide that are rooting for Sabrina's rescue. I don't want to let anyone down, especially Sabrina. πŸ˜”

I can't wait until you're safe in my hands. Soon, Sabrina. Soon. 😘

"So I'm getting a sister?" 🐿
Yes, Seymour. It may take a miracle to happen, but if you managed to find me after you went missing for 8 days... then bringing home a beautiful angel that I can spot each day shouldn't be impossible. 😊

I just found someone to feed the animals starting Monday, so I'll be back in Miami to help rescue Sabrina very soon. I hope she's missed me a little by then, and makes all of our lives easier by deciding she's ready to let us help her. πŸ™

Thank you to the wonderful people (@timothy.and.friends, @catgirl413, and others) that have been to the park to check on Sabrina. It's vital that the traps are checked at least twice a day, as the earlier incident of a stolen trap has proven. Sabrina is so lucky that she'll be saved with the help of so many people, I wish every squirrel with malocclusion could be so fortunate. πŸ‘

Oh how I've missed this little angel. 🐿️ Seymour was awake and anxious to jump onto me as soon as I went into his room. He makes little adorable grunts as he sniffs me and investigates where I've been and what I've been up to. Afterwards he gave me some kisses on my nose, and fell asleep in my hand. 😍

The drive back home was rough, mainly from the weather but also because my eyes couldn't stay open (ended up taking a nap at a rest stop). I guess the last few days I've been running on adrenaline and it finally caught up to me. 😴

I'm going to nap for a bit, then I have lots of pictures of Sabrina (about 300) to look over, call around until I find someone that can care for the animals here, and I'll continue to brainstorm and look for whatever I need for the trip back. Perhaps there is a sweet little girl in a trap this morning that's ready to be picked up, we'll find out later. Saving Sabrina is still my priority (of course), and when I head back down there we'll be ready with some other ideas that weren't possible to execute yesterday. Sabrina will be safe soon, never having to worry about this happening to her again. 😘

Stay tuned for more updates, photos, and brainstorming ideas. Those kind people that live in or near Miami that are interested in helping, we do need people to periodically check the traps. Today I believe we have that covered, but tomorrow isn't yet confirmed. I'll be reaching out later today, as well as thanking you all for caring about Sabrina so much! Please know I'm not doing any of this alone, it really has been a group effort (several groups actually). So many people just want to help her, and I hope either she finally cooperates or that we can execute a plan that doesn't need to rely on her cooperation as much. Soon Sabrina, soon. πŸ™

Swipe to see all. Good luck smoochies from Seymour before he went to bed in his nest. I hate leaving him, but I'll make it up to him when I return. Hoping to offer good news from Miami later. Please send good thoughts to the poor wild squirrel that @timothy.and.friends has been trying to help. πŸ™

Anytime is a good time for a nap. 😴

Seymour clearly doesn't mind that our sleep schedule has been off a bit lately. Resting up for a long drive tonight, and thankful that my little angel is healthy and happy. 😊

Forgot to post this awhile back, Seymour next to one of his large prints! 😍

I found out from our visit with @tumbleweedsquirrelly that Seymour is a bit of a runt. It seems that eastern gray squirrels found further north are bigger than those in the hotter southern states. I think his small stature just makes him even cuter, and maybe it explains why he's so fearless. My little baby boy with a Napoleon complex. πŸ˜‚

For #flashbackfriday, here are 3 clips (swipe to see the others) of little Seymour from October 2015. 1- Seymour munching on a piece of broccoli as he was trying out solids. 2- Seymour's first tree limbs. 3- Seymour having a nighttime snack. Hope you enjoy them. 😊

Swipe to see more photos. Seymour's been grounded for several days unfortunately. He hasn't done anything wrong, it's just for his own safety for the time being. πŸ˜•

The first issue was he was suddenly anxious to explore beyond his yard after realizing how much nicer the neighbors' trees are. Not sure what caused his sudden interest, but it's not safe for him to cross roads and go into private properties where I hear people shooting/hunting each evening. I think I have a solution to that, but it's going to take some time to save up for the special fence. Just a temporary hiccup I hope. The second issue presented itself over the weekend. The mother #fox of those 2 adorable fox pups I spotted not long ago showed up and is terrorizing the neighborhood with her ruthless & cunning predatory skills. I've seen her several times in the yard lately on her way to finding her next meal. The wild squirrels here are thankfully quick enough to evade the fox, but I won't risk Seymour's life while she's out there. I could supervise him, but if she chased him into an area that he's unfamiliar with it could end horribly. I'm hoping the solution to his venturing off will also prevent the fox from entering our yard, so either way he'll be able to enjoy the outdoors again in time. 🐿

Seymour and I would like to wish his mom a wonderful Mother's Day. Chloe was the one who saved Seymour's life when he was dropped off at the animal hospital as a helpless orphan baby. She did her absolute best to save him, forfeiting sleep each night to feed him on his schedule instead of her own, checking on him every hour of each day for weeks while he was such a delicate baby squirrel (baby squirrels can't regulate their temperature so ensuring they're warm is vital), and to sum things up she truly gave Seymour a second chance at life. She's responsible for him becoming the wonderful soul he is today. 🐿

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, have a wonderful day. 😘

For #flashbackfriday, here's a photo I never shared from March 16th 2016, the day after I reunited with Seymour. 🐿

He was in the middle of giving me kisses (he likes to give me gentle nibbles on my nose and eyelashes). Seymour's expression is full of love in my opinion, he was so thankful to be home after the big adventure in the wild. In truth, I was more grateful than he'll ever know. 😊

Swipe to see all photos. Same moment from this morning's playtime from 3 different distances, I like each one and still don't have a favorite (especially in their original format). I still have a lot to learn with photography, and I'm fortunate that I have such an adorable subject that helps me improve. 🐿

I wish it were possible to post multiple photos in wide format instead of square, c'mon @instagram. πŸ˜‰
