Rescued 9/2015 as an orphan, hope you enjoy his special life as well as his new sister @sabrina_the_squirrel. 🐿️

I have another appointment with Dr. Zellner this morning for @sabrina_the_squirrel to get a second (and hopefully conclusive) culture sample taken, so before I left... Seymour enjoyed his favorite snack to make up for my time away. Lighting might not be too good, I had to improvise and film where Seymour decided to stop and eat his #avocado 🥑. Thanks for wiping your face on my shirt Seymour, little stinker. 🤣

We hope you all have a wonderful day, please drive safe and send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. 😊

While @sabrina_the_squirrel was enjoying her avocado with ladylike manners, Seymour was devouring his new favorite snack that @cindyflyingsquirrel introduced him to: mealworms! And since he likes polishing off Sabrina's baby food jars, I placed them in the jar to see what he'd do. Wait till the end to see how excited and protective he is of his snack. 🤣

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend, please drive safe and send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. 😊

(Swipe for more photos) The babies are now in much more capable hands (thank you again Judi), and I managed a few photos before they left... including a few with Seymour. I'll be able to watch them grow up and will share updates from time to time. Feel free to visit www.squirrel-nation.com if you want to keep tabs on them and other squirrels. 😊
Update: I've already received word that they're all resting with full bellies after a successful feeding. 😄

So this happened last night. 😍

Last night as I was ready to go to bed, I received a message asking if I could take in 4 baby squirrels. Of course I said yes, and wow I was surprised at how tiny they are. They still have umbilical cord remnants attached to them, so they're only days old (less than a week). I've kept them warm, they showed up hydrated so that was nice, but I'm not satisfied with my feeding abilities with them. I reached out immediately to find an experienced rehabber, and so far there are at least 2 willing souls that can do a much better job than I can. There are 2 boys and 2 girls, their heads all look trauma-free but a couple of them have superficial scratches or bruising elsewhere. Still, they're all moving all of their limbs just fine and I hope they'll enjoy the outdoors in a few months as a close-knit family. I wish I had the time to care for them myself, but they need to be checked on, fed, and stimulated to pee/poo every 2 hours. Thankfully there are wonderful people able to take on the challenge and give them (and many others just like them) a second chance at life. 😊

Update: I'll be handing them off this morning to a wonderful rehabber that was also a tremendous help during Sabrina's rescue, and I'm sure she'll be taking pictures as they blossom so we can all enjoy their journey back to the wild. 😊

Although he hasn't had much interest in them before, Seymour has spent his day enjoying this pinecone! @stusaph brought them over from my aunt's ranch, they're probably the main food source for the Sherman's fox squirrels that live there, and apparently Seymour, Squeaky Samurai & R4 (@cindyflyingsquirrel), and Pumpkin (@tribbleinmycoffee) can all vouch for how yummy they are. 😊

I had hoped to show @stusaph the family of Sherman's fox squirrels that live at my aunt's ranch before he left, so we woke up bright & early yesterday morning to go visit them. Unfortunately they weren't around their usual area, but after a bit of walking around we stumbled upon one of the youngsters. Despite being young, it's still huge compared to a gray squirrel like Seymour and probably similar in size to a typical fox squirrel. I've seen the mother though, and she's much much bigger! I hope to see them all again and get better photos and videos, they're magnificent! 😍

(Swipe for more) Seymour watched from the window as Pumpkin left yesterday. I think he's got a crush! 😍

The other photos are of Pumpkin and I, Seymour gazing across the room at her, and finally Pumpkin sitting with her daddy. She's such a calm & gentle girl, Seymour could learn a thing or two from her about proper behavior around people. 😊

Hope you're all having a nice day! Please drive safe and send our love to your furry children and visitors when you can. 😊

"Outta my way, I've got places to go and people to see!" 😂

Since we moved from Tampa last year, Seymour hasn't had many #SQUBER jobs. Today, however, Seymour is transporting a VIP and will be meeting a few other wonderful squirrels & people so we're very excited. @stusaph @miss_whizzer_is_a_girl @zombiemamaof3 @cindyflyingsquirrel 😁 #seymourthesquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrelsofig #squirrel #squirrels #squirrellife #squirrellove #easterngreysquirrel #easterngraysquirrel #ilovesquirrels #thedodo #petphotography #nikonphotography #iphonephotography #theinternetneedsmoresquirrels #wildliferescue #savewildlife #cutenessoverload #iloveyouseymour

(Sound on) We've all had moments like this when nobody's looking and our favorite snack is in front of us. 😇 "Mine! All mine!" For #throwbackthursday, here is one of Seymour's #pistachios tantrums, he wants them all at once and gets so frustrated when he can only get 2 at a time (he ends up eating 1-2 and I pick up the rest). 😂

"Hmm... So my little sister @sabrina_the_squirrel gets lots of time with dad because she needs help to feel better? *fake cough* I think I'm getting sick dad *fake cough* so come over here and love me." 😂

Part 5/5- Seymour was showing @sabrina_the_squirrel his "do whatever you want Dad, I'm just gonna eat this pecan" attitude. 😂

I love that he trusts me so much, it's not easy for a squirrel to allow contact at all when enjoying a delicious snack. And of course I do this with Seymour in memory of @indi_the_squirrel, she was the lovely squirrel that inspired this. 😘

Sabrina didn't seem too bothered at all about meeting Seymour, and the same goes for him meeting her. After she's fully healed in a few weeks or a month, I'll try to start letting them interact more. While she's still recovering, she's going to be more defensive and weary of other squirrels and people... so I'd rather wait till she's feeling her best. I hope you all enjoyed today's videos that are on Seymour's and Sabrina's Instagrams. 😊

Part 2/5- Seymour's sister (@sabrina_the_squirrel) was grooming herself this afternoon when she was rudely videobombed by a certain adorable boy. They're aware of each other now, obviously, and I'm happy to see that Sabrina resumed her grooming shortly after Seymour's appearance. 😊

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. 😂

Swipe to see more. Just a few of the random things my mom sends me when she's at her sister's ranch (her horses reside there). 2 clips of the magnificent Sherman's fox squirrels, and a little owl that she met earlier today. There's a video of a huge skunk somewhere also but I can't find it. 😍

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. 😘

Stuart Little the dwarf squirrel is the definition of #cutenessoverload. 😍

I don't know much about dwarf squirrels, I'd defer to @cindyflyingsquirrel and others. I know they're a "special needs" squirrel with some parallels to a child with down syndrome. Stuart seems aware of his surroundings, yet he's in his own world from what I observed in my few minutes with him. They are more difficult to care for than a typical squirrel (which are already more than a handful), and usually don't live long. Being in the hands of a vet, especially Dr. Emerson, gives Stuart the best opportunity to thrive. I look forward to seeing him again someday! 😍

While @sabrina_the_squirrel was in the back getting her post-op checkup, I got to babysit Dr. Emerson's incredibly adorable dwarf squirrel, Stuart. 😍

I'll be home to my own baby boy shortly. 😘

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. 😊
