Seymour is upset that @discoverychannel has #sharkweek but not #squirrelweek, and so tonight he took his frustrations out on Sharkey... eventually slamming him to the ground and looking directly into the lens afterwards. Little stinker. πŸ˜‚

Seymour was being nosey and found one of the stuffies that was given to @sabrina_the_squirrel. Swipe to see more photos. 😍

He played with Sharkey all afternoon actually, which was fun to watch after Sabrina's misfortunes today. Please send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can, goodnight everyone. 😘

Seymour enjoyed some fresh air this evening, and when I'm sure it's safe he'll have his backyard tree to enjoy again. Swipe to see more photos. He's been very patient, and now that @sabrina_the_squirrel is in the recovery stage... I can finally give him lots of attention. 😘

Sabrina's surgery went well, and she's now comfortably resting. 😊

We have a follow-up tomorrow morning to make sure everything is looking as it should, and then she'll be on meds for 4 weeks as she heals. Dr. Emerson also attempted to improve her nasal passages (the big hole caused by the bottom incisor in her nose), but there's a 50/50 chance that the hole may reopen. The most dangerous part is over, now I just need to keep her pain and any infection to a minimum while she heals. Thank you for caring about this wonderful little girl, her new life is just beginning. 😊

Seymour and I hope you've all had a wonderful day. Swipe to see all photos. 😊
2 more days until his sister @sabrina_the_squirrel has her surgery to remove her upper incisors. Hopefully we'll be back home on Saturday and she'll be healed up in a few weeks. I'll post her bedtime massages later tonight. 😊

I've never celebrated Father's Day before, but @stusaph sent me this card. πŸ˜‚ Thank you Stu! It's true that @seymour_the_squirrel and @sabrina_the_squirrel are my babies, along with the other rugrats (Bella, Honey, and Toto). Happy Father's Day to the dads out there. 😊

"Go ahead and watch the @24hoursoflemans Dad, I'll just fall asleep in your hand." 🐿️ In case you're not already following her, Seymour's new little sister @sabrina_the_squirrel has her big surgery scheduled for this coming Friday. Keep her in your thoughts, hopefully everything will go smoothly and that will be the last big hurdle as she continues her recovery. Thank you. 😊

This is probably as close as Seymour and Sabrina will get for awhile. Eventually they'll be running around together, just need to be patient. 😊

She's still getting acclimated here at home, so I don't want to stress her out. I also want her infection to heal up so Seymour doesn't potentially smell anything wrong with her (squirrels can smell or sense underlying issues on others, so a mouth infection would be a piece of cake to detect). Love these two so much, and I'll try to help them get along however I can. 😊

Not quite the meeting people are anticipating between Seymour and @sabrina_the_squirrel, but it's a start. I need more hands or some sort of head-mounted camera. πŸ˜‚

It's possible that these two will learn to get along and coexist, or perhaps I'll have to keep them separated. Either way, they'll have my hearts and I'll make sure they're content, healthy, and loved. 😊

Seymour with his Uncle Stu (@stusaph) before he headed back to NYC. He'd never held a squirrel before despite having a profound love for them for many years. I'm happy that we rescued @sabrina_the_squirrel quickly enough for us to race back home so he could meet Seymour as well. A successful weekend to say the least! 😊

Hopefully this will be the final time I have to say bye to my baby boy. πŸ™

Thank you to @flipscomb for writing an article about Sabrina in the @miaminewtimes. Perhaps it'll help us find an adventurous arborist looking for a challenge or even a Dade County-approved vendor with the proper clearances to aid us with Sabrina's rescue. I hope that it's at least helped the readers see that squirrels aren't all nuisances or without souls, and there are people around the world that care about them. Thank you again to everyone that's taken part in Sabrina's rescue in all sorts of ways, it hasn't been easy or cheap but I'm so thankful that we have been able to explore and exhaust every avenue for the sake of Sabrina. We certainly haven't failed thus far from a lack of effort, we just need everything to fall into place once. Please check out her article when you have a chance, just Google search "Miami New Times Sabrina" and you'll find the article rather easily. 😊

Although I've made preparations all week for this trip, there's no guarantee that we'll be successful. The weather will probably be awful, and finding one necessary piece to the puzzle has proven exceptionally difficult. We may need to explore financial incentives to acquire the right person. We still have a bit of time, so I'll remain optimistic and there are of course backup plans. If the first piece of the puzzle is successful, then the second piece of our puzzle will work itself out. We won't know until we try, so hope for the best. πŸ™

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, please drive safe and send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. I'll try to have good news for you soon. 😊

Since it's Thursday, here's a #tbt from last year of Seymour's bedtime massages. He's definitely not spoiled. 🐿️ I've been very busy the past few days (including driving across the state today) preparing for our next moves with Sabrina. I'll be leaving tomorrow, and will hopefully some overdue good news very soon. Until then, I'm trying to enjoy every second I can with my baby boy. 🐿️ #seymourthesquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrelsofig #squirrel #squirrels #squirrellife #squirrellove #easterngreysquirrel #easterngraysquirrel #ilovesquirrels #thedodo #petphotography #nikonphotography #iphonephotography #throwbackthursday #theinternetneedsmoresquirrels #wildliferescue #savewildlife #cutenessoverload #iloveyouseymour

After the devastating news about the lift no longer being available for Sabrina's rescue, I felt miserable. A few people suggested something that I didn't want to consider: that I go home and regroup for a little while. I didn't want to leave Miami without Sabrina, but I saw the benefits of getting home and the lack of benefits of staying there at this time. So I raced back home yesterday, gave Seymour a million kisses, and am working hard on new or improved strategies to rescue Sabrina. Some of the new ideas are already falling into place, and here at home I have greater resources to make or buy things that could prove useful.
I haven't given up on Sabrina's rescue at all, in fact I may have made more progress yesterday and today than I had for the first 15 days. After being dosed and having her nest approached for 3 out of the last 4 days, it'll be good for Sabrina to enjoy some peaceful time while I'm away. She's worsening everyday, but she's also shown me what a fighter she is. I'm hopeful that as soon as I go back, it won't take long to rescue her. I'm trying very hard to ensure that.
We still need help with Sabrina's rescue, but at this time I'd prefer not to publicize our ideas. I learned yesterday that it only takes one person to derail our best chance of Sabrina being rescued, so now I have to tread lightly at the center as well as online for Sabrina's sake.
Seymour has been extremely sweet since my return. I feel awful that I was gone for so long, but I think he's already forgiven me. I hope the next time I head back down to Miami, it won't need to be for so long. πŸ™

My baby boy Seymour, I'm sure you're wondering where the heck I am. I'm thankful you're eating & drinking well, and I promise you'll get lots and lots of love as soon as I'm home. There's a precious girl squirrel down in Miami that needs a lot of help, and hopefully you'll meet her soon after she's all better. She's got a lot of street smarts, plays hard to get, and won't be used to your world... so be patient with Sabrina. I'll try my best to be home tomorrow night. 😘

I'm spending today doing some last minute brainstorming, supply shopping (thank you again to all those making this possible), and mentally preparing for tomorrow. It looks like the weather forecast is in our favor (cloudy early, thunderstorms won't arrive till hopefully the afternoon), so I just need Sabrina to go to sleep in her nest and get access to the lift for 5-10 minutes. Ideally, we'd get the lift up to her nest around 9-10am. Another option would be to wait until her afternoon nap, but we'll see. There are too many variables beyond my control, so if/when everything lines up we'll attempt another rescue. I'm confident that the reasons for our failed attempt can be corrected this time. πŸ™
