(Swipe for more photos) My Hurricane Irma rescue girl has 3 sisters now. 🐿️🐿️🐿️ If you look closely at the 4th photo, that baby girl has the same tummy stripes as @sabrina_the_squirrel. 😍

My hurricane girl is too young (still has her eyes closed) to join the little rascals & Smidge, and one of my rehabber friends has been taking care of 26 healthy babies, so I took in 3 of her rescues close in age to my hurricane girl so they can bond and be released together. Although she still has her eyes closed, she'll be just fine with these gals. Being released together increases their chances of thriving, so it's better for all of them. 😊

(Sound on) After I'm finished feeding all the rescue babies, Sabrina always wants the leftovers! 😋 She's a bit messy, but she doesn't mind and neither do I. 😊

She can't suckle because of the damage left behind by her teeth on her face & lips, but she certainly gets an A for effort. She thinks biting down on the end of the Miracle Nipple is what keeps the formula flowing, so she bites & bites. I'm too proud of her to tell her that it's my finger pushing on the end of the syringe that controls the formula flow. ☺️ #sabrinathesquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrelsofig #squirrel #squirrels #squirrellife #squirrellove #easterngreysquirrel #easterngraysquirrel #ilovesquirrels #thedodo #petphotography #nikonphotography #iphonephotography #theinternetneedsmoresquirrels #wildliferescue #savewildlife #cutenessoverload #iloveyousabrina

(Sound on) One more #tbt from the last time I saw Marilyn back in February. 😍

By then, she had relocated her and her family from the park trees to the safer swamp forest. The hawks were abundant in the park, so she found safety in the forest along with plenty of food & water. It took me nearly an hour to find her (or for her to find me), but I spent the rest of the afternoon in the woods with her & her family. I believe I'll have to venture back into the forest to try to locate her again, and it may take more than one visit. Still, I'm not concerned for her well-being... she's shown me how brilliant she is on many occasions, I just miss my old friend. 😊

Time for a surprise Thursday squirrel break! These beautiful #orgimami squirrels were made for me by @greatauntharriett's super-talented son! (Does he know there's an historic building just down Bank St named after him? 😉) One is a #flyingsquirrel, the other a #treesquirrel.

(Swipe for a few more photos) #tbt Before @sabrina_the_squirrel came into the world and our lives, Seymour and I befriended another incredibly special wild squirrel: Marilyn. 😊

Marilyn observed Seymour at the park from his very first visit, and quickly became a part of our family. She protected Seymour from other wild squirrels by chasing them off, she helped Seymour find his way back to me on numerous occasions (including once when he ventured into the swampy forest and also when he was gone for 8 days), and she helped show her squirrel family that they could trust me so that I could enjoy their company whenever she was off on her own adventures. I haven't seen her in a long time, but I know in my heart that she's doing just fine. I've watched how brilliant she is at avoiding mistakes other squirrels unfortunately make, and she's even passing on her survival skills & strategies to her family. I'll visit her park in Tampa again soon, and hopefully I'll come across her and perhaps her babies as well. 😊
Looking back at Marilyn's photos, I see a striking resemblance to @sabrina_the_squirrel. I'm certain that I was drawn to helping Sabrina because of Marilyn, and I hope I can thank her in person someday. 😘

(Sound on, of course) Nom Nom Nom! The babies are all asleep after dinner, so my baby boy got to enjoy his favorite: #avocado. 🥑

(Sound on) Sabrina still enjoys an occasional nut as a treat (in this case, it's a walnut cluster). She can't bite it into smaller pieces, so she improvises by scraping her bottom incisors against the nut to create tiny shavings that she can eat. Brilliant girl. 😊
