Eating with one hand is not the most practical but I manage! Specially when it comes to peanuts πŸ₯œ πŸ–πŸΌπŸΏοΈ#snacktime #albertthewondersquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrel #loveanimals #nevergiveup

Thinking that 2 month ago I was completely paralyzed... look at me going now! Ok ok... the road ahead is still very long, but impossible is certainly not part of my vocabulary! πŸ’ͺ🏼🐿️❀️ #fastandfurious #albertthewondersquirrel #handicappedpets #onedayatatime #exploring #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrel

I love my new cardboard stairs to get in and out of my cage. Plus stairs are a great rehab workout for my legs. Yesterday I went up and down by myself at least 3 times!! Watch out world I am coming for you πŸ’ͺ🏼🐿️ #stairmaster #gettinghealthy #workout #rehad #stairs #physicaltherapy #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrel #albertthewondersquirrel

I have the best sister. She is always encouraging me on the hard days and looking over me when I sleep. Unfortunately due to my condition I will not be able to be released in the wild, so I am very happy & lucky I have a best friend at home! 🐿️+😽= ✨ #albertthewondersquirrel #sister #squirrelsofinstagram #thisiscaline #bestfriend

I don't really wanna go out or see anyone today.... I'd rather stay in bed and stare at my straw ceiling. One of those days #justchilling #leavemealone #albertthewondersquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrel #onedayatatime

This past week my mood has improved, I played more and even gained a bit of weight! Doctor said my motor skills will keep improving too but we have to be patient because neurological damage takes a loooong time to heal. In the meantime I'll keep wrestling with my bear. πŸ’ͺ🏼✨😘#albertthewondersquirrel #gettinghealthy #onedayatatime #improvement #rehab #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrel

Can you tell I am smiling? That's because the vet was hopeful for me to keep on recovering!! She put me on a month long nerve damage & anti-inflammatory treatment and said I might even regain use of my paralysed limbs! She also said I was on the skinny side so more nuts for me! Yay. Now we wait and hope the treatment works!! πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸΏοΈβœ¨β€οΈ #albertthewondersquirrel #rehab #squirrelsofinstagram #gettinghealthy #recovery #love #onedayatatime

Mum saved enough money to bring me to the "exotic vet" today to get a diagnosis on my condition... I am a bit scared. Wish me luck πŸ™πŸΌβœ¨πŸΏοΈ #albertthewondersquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #vetvisit #exoticpet

Hi guys! Don't mind my posture I'm still a bit wonky, but I am starting to explore again... slowly getting stronger one day at a time. Front left paw still not coming back... starting to get used to the idea I might be a 3 legged wonder squirrel. We'll see!! Have a good day 😘 #albertthewondersquirrel #rehab #onedayatatime #squirrelsofinstagram #babysquirrelrescue

Look who is starting to flip on his stomach and hold his head again ! Albert has mainly been lying on his side since his accident, but for the past 2 days he has started crawling and moving around on his stomach!! Our little wonder squirrel teaches us courage everyday. Keep going Albert, we believe in you! ✨ #albertthewondersquirrel #rehab #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrel #onedayatatime #progressnotperfection

Hello guys! Our little Albert continues to impress us and makes progress everyday. As you can see he regained control of his jaw and loves his new chew toys. His eyes are bright again and his appetite is back too (digestive track works great πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ). He also is regaining strength & mobility in one leg and one arm and can now move his tail again! The road to recovery will be long but Albert keeps showing us he wants to live and we believe in our little wonder squirrel. Keep sending love and positive thoughts to him, be cause it seams to work πŸ™πŸΌβ€οΈ #albertthewondersquirrel #rehab #squirrelsofinstagram #onedayatatime

Hi guys, here is an update on Albert's health : Our little wonder Albert is starting to chew again! He is still extremely weak, and still doesn't move much. But we are amazed at his will to fight and live. He is happy to eat and drink, a great improvement compared to the past few days when we had to force feed him. We are hopeful he will slowly regain strength but his condition is still very fragile. Be sure he is surrounded with love and care. We'll give more news soon, thanks again for all your messages and thoughts ❀️ #albertthewondersquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram
