    Hello!!

    Hi, Everyone!!

    We joined this board a couple weeks ago but we have been so busy that we haven't posted a formal introduction. I'm Lisa and my husband is David. We just enjoyed our very first rescue and release. We found a baby squirrel in our backyard left in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Everyone we contacted were overwhelmed with rescues so we quickly educated ourselves via these boards and today we can say we successfully rescued and released a squirrel...WooHoo!! Our squirrel continues to be a part of our lives. We continue to educate ourselves via these boards. It is baby season again and we want to stay on top of what's working and what's not.

    Here is a video of our Rico. My husband gets carried away with these videos, but it's our story.

    Thank you!!
    He does the videos right off his phone with an app called Videoshop. Looks easy enough.
    I do like this board. I continue to educate myself here daily reading posts. Every day it continues to be the greatest experience having Rico still in our lives.

    Welcome Lisa and David!

    I have watched your video several times now and just LOVE Rico What a happy healthy baby she is and seems to love her mom and dad!
    I love the story of her still coming in at night to have a sleepover...that is so stinking cute. You are now squirrel and there is nothing like it.

    It would be awesome if you guys could come to the Celebration in May and meet some of your fellow rehabber's We always have fun and share information.
    Thank you so much for the story of Rico and her pictures.

    Welcome Lisa, David and Rico
    What an outstanding name for a squee Ricochet
    What a beautiful, healthy looking girl you raised.
    That video was beyond perfect, so many poignant moments that we all know so well.
    You are completely as we all are. I look forward to seeing more of Rico and maybe I'll get to meet you in May if you join us for celebration

    Thanks, Everyone!!

    What a nice warm welcome here at S-N. Oh, we are definetely owned by this little creature. It's funny how every time Rico gets upset the very first place she comes running to is us. We love her soooo much!!

    I've just got to say that I love listening to Daddy taking to Rico. He's so very attentive to his baby.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the videos, thank you for sharing; we have some great ones too, but since I only have two hands, I can't always capture some of the good stuff! It's great a to a squirrel parent...
