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. 😂

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

SEYMOUR_THE_SQUIRREL REPOST: This wonderful girl (I've started calling her Sabrina because it's a much sweeter name than Sabertooth or Snaggletooth) is still in Miami tonight, but so am I. Our hired trapper couldn't make it today, so he and I will be focusing on her bright & early tomorrow morning. I'm hopeful, so please be hopeful as well. 🙏

Thank you for the overwhelming support and kindness, I will be thanking each and every person individually. We're going to save Sabrina, and I'd be really grateful to her if she'd just jump into my arms tomorrow as soon as I get there! 😂 She should know by now that I love her, as do many wonderful people. 😊

Goodnight, tomorrow is a hopeful day. 😴

Sabrina has been awfully clever and elusive, but I'm coming back to see her on Monday morning ready with more ideas. Here are just a few of the improved arsenal of supplies I'll be bringing down to Miami for Sabrina thanks to the wonderful souls that have supported her rescue. We'll rent a ladder if we have a worthwhile plan that requires it, but that still depends on my meeting with the property manager on Tuesday. These are some of the items we can use in the meantime, and I'll be chaining/locking the traps to the tree to avoid anyone stealing another trap. Also going to pick up a cockatiel nesting box tomorrow as one more idea worth attempting.
At some point, we're going to need 5-6 people one morning (at least) between 8-10am to try to quarantine her when we hope she forages in the vegetation around her tree. I understand that's difficult to coordinate on weekdays with work schedules, so I may hire a few of the homeless people if that's what it takes. 😉

Lots of preparations to take care of here before I leave tomorrow night, so bare with me if I don't respond right away to any of your helpful ideas. 😊

I'm not coming home until she's in my hands, so I hope Sabrina isn't as stubborn as I am. 🙏

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. 🙏

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. 😔

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

This happy #pancaking squirrel has been feasting on delicious tulips for weeks in #DowntownOttawa during the #CdnTulipFest, but tulip season is winding down in Ottawa now. But at least black squirrels are here year-round! (I'd like to think they're as much a tourism draw as the tulips! 😉) 🐿❤️🌷 #TheInternetNeedsMoreSquirrels #Ottawa #CentretownOttawa #OttawaBlackSquirrel #blacksquirrel #squirrel #ecureuil #ardilla #eichhörnchen #eekhoorn #wiwer #risu #gilhari #kiskoli #ekorre #sincap #wildlife #urbanwildlife #loveanimals #lovesquirrels #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrelsofig #myOttawa #LoveOttawa

The more people that see Sabrina and understand the sense of urgency to help her, the better her chances of being saved are. Maybe we'll reach a firefighter in Miami, or someone with tree-climbing skills, or someone with a 20+ foot ladder that's willing to help, or someone with a better idea or better equipment than what we've considered, or just someone that knows someone else that could make a difference. We just need to reach one person that can significantly increase our odds of saving her. Sabrina's malocclusion gets a little bit worse each day, and even though she truly has a fighting spirit to live... each day that passes increases the urgency to save her life. Please help us save Sabrina @thedodo. 🙏

I've been brainstorming all day on ideas I can explore before heading back down to Miami on Monday to help with Sabrina's rescue. I don't want to leave any stones unturned, so I'm trying to reach a wider audience. Sabrina deserves our help, she deserves her life to be saved, she deserves every resource we can offer her. 🐿️ She's in her nest in her tree each night, and sometimes most of the day. Her other tendency is to forage within the vegetation around her tree during the mornings. Aside from that, she's a very smart squirrel that doesn't seem like she'll ever be fooled by a trap. We need someone with skills and expertise beyond placing a baited trap on the ground, we need someone to truly care. I have a few ideas, but I'm not an expert and there may be other ideas that haven't been considered yet. 😕

I'll be back in Miami on Monday morning, and I don't plan on coming home until Sabrina is safely in my hands. Help us end her suffering and give her a second chance. We can make a difference in her life. 🙏

"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. 🙏

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. 👍

When Sabrina naps during the hottest part of the day, I've been fortunate enough to enjoy the other squirrels around the property. Swipe for more photos. 🐿️ Still looking for someone to feed the animals here so I can get back down to help rescue our queen. 🙏

Received an update from @timothy.and.friends and @catgirl413 that one of the traps is gone. 😔

Fortunately, Sabrina is still there (swipe to see other photo) as well as her baby. So it seems as though one of the desperate homeless people needed the trap more than we did, or Sabrina made a few calls to her contacts and had it removed. The other trap is still there, so that leads me to believe that it wasn't anyone with authority that removed the trap. I'm thankful she was quickly spotted, I would never want her to be in the hands of the wrong people. 🙏

If anyone is available to check the remaining trap tomorrow morning, please let us know. I'm working on my net project, but learned that the dimensions needed are greater than anticipated. Need to find a different material that is more readily available. We need to catch a break at some point, but until then we can try to overcome each obstacle that presents itself. At least the weather has been kind, and Sabrina is in good spirits. 🐿️ #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrelsofig #squirrel #squirrels #squirrellife #squirrellove #easterngreysquirrel #easterngraysquirrel #ilovesquirrels #thedodo #petphotography #nikonphotography #iphonephotography #theinternetneedsmoresquirrels #wildliferescue

“ Swipe to see one of the ideas floating around to catch Sabrina. 🐿️ Our professional trapper set his traps yesterday. I don't have any experience with trapping, but I've been watching Sabrina for days. She took a look at one of Osmar's traps yesterday and went in the opposite direction. Maybe in time she'll feel desperate enough to get closer to the traps. However, I can't entice her to do so any more than I already have. 😕

Maybe it's a long shot, but I really feel that I can contain her within a triangular section of the vegetation that she forages in each morning. She's not on high alert while she's underneath the big leaves, she's even slowly walked past me close enough to graze my foot without getting startled. If I can make a large enough net to cover that section of vegetation I've marked, and use something to push the net down to the bottom of the vegetation... she'd be trapped within that small area with nowhere to go but into my hands eventually. I may need 2-3 people, or I can use stakes on 2 sides and be the 3rd side of the triangle myself, but if she goes into that section like she normally does... I know in my heart she'd be saved. It's out of the box, it probably wouldn't work on 99 out of 100 squirrels. But with Sabrina, I believe it would. 🙏

Another crazy idea floating around is to acquire a ladder that can get someone close enough to approach her nest. What to do from there hasn't been decided, but her 2 predictable behaviors are that she forages in the vegetation for breakfast most mornings and she spends the majority of her time in that nest. She can and has napped in other nests, but she returns to this nest at bedtime. If the traps don't work, one of those 2 tendencies needs to and has to be exploited to save her life. She's too clever to fall for most trapping methods, so we need to prepare for extreme options just in case. 🙏

A video from yesterday. I don't know how Sabrina does it, other than she's a tough girl with an incredible desire to live. 🐿️ I'm trying to take advantage of the daylight hours to run any possible errands while stores are open. Gathering utility cargo netting fabric from @joann_stores, a telescoping landing net from @bassproshops, and maybe a few other relevant items. Once there's nothing else I can realistically shop for, I'll get around to the much overdue thank you messages. Please know I'm so grateful that there are many of you caring about Sabrina's rescue and life afterwards. 😊

If anyone is in or near Crystal River, Florida that would be willing to feed 2 horses, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and an adorable little squirrel for a few days (maybe) send me a DM. I'm asking whoever I can, as it's a necessity in order for me to get back down to Miami. 🙏

The bad weather has so far avoided Sabrina today, and I hope that continues. Her nest surviving the severe storms that are coming her way would be a great help to her and to us. 🤞

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. 🙏
