PossumTree
For those who might be curious…

…between the 14 squirrels and 3 additional babies, I have feedings to do every day at 7, 9, 12, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8. The last feeding is everyone, and usually takes about 2 hours. 

In between these times I have to prep food, clean cages, and provide enrichment for everyone. 

None of this includes care for our rescue rabbit, 20 cats, Rowan the dog, or Maypop. Or, indeed, care for ourselves (yesterday, I skipped breakfast, ate lunch at 2pm, went grocery shopping at 10pm, and didn’t have “dinner” until midnight). 

I get no days off, and I don’t get paid for any of this. In fact, I’m at negative dollars an hour because I have to put money into it. 

So this is why I am so tired and cranky about 96% of the time. 

Our babies need food!
If you don’t want to donate money to Maypop Wildlife Rescue, you can always donate food!
The Fox Valley can be ordered from websites like Chris’s Squirrels and More for about $12. Esbilac can be bought at the pet store for about $30.
If you are interested, please contact me for shipping info.

Please help us help these babies!
You can still donate money to Maypop Wildlife Rescue through Paypal, to the address Roverage@hotmail.com!

Baby #14 came in over the weekend.

Please help us!

Okay followers.
I need your help! There are 535 of you. Even if you all gave just $1 we would have more than enough money to help us through the rest of this season. We are seriously low on funds. If you can’t donate can you please reblog the hell out of my latest squirrel post? We would really appreciate it!

Hey everyone! 
We need your help again! Despite the fact that we ended up raising more money than we needed for the transportation of the Turkey Vulture last month, our funds are already dwindling. 

  Your donations have provided food, housing, and medicine for 15 babies in the last month! Unfortunately, we are quickly running out of formula - and the mix is rather expensive! :( 

We could also really do with a second squirrel cage, as some of the younger babies are becoming more active and are eager for more room to run and climb. 

If you were all willing to help us out again - even with a couple of bucks - we would be so grateful - and so would our animals! You can donate any amount on Paypal to Roverage@hotmail.com. Thanks! 

So I know this post hasn’t been up for even 24 hours yet, but we are only at 85 notes and we still haven’t received any donations :(
I really am concerned about what will happen to our animals when we run out of money. I think we have enough to get us through maybe a week or two, but after that I am not sure what we will do, which is pretty scary.
I think if we were able to raise about $400 that would be enough to get us the second squirrel cage, and see us through the rest of the season for food and medicine.
Please consider donating! We really need your help!

We are up $43! Thank you so much if you have already donated! We really appreciate it! But we are still very much in need - especially for the second squirrel cage! Please help! 

We are still under $50 in donations and we desperately need that second squirrel cage! We have gotten 2 more babies in since I updated this. Please consider donating!

Up 5 grams in the last 3 days. Still not enough, but we’ll take it.

Younger squirrelies have moved into the bottom half of the cage. Don’t like cutting off the big girls’ space, but the aquarium was just getting too small for these guys! :\

We are up to $35 in donations - thank you so much to those who donated! This definitely helps!
Still hoping to reach our goal of $400, even though it seems as though we don’t have much momentum :\ If you are interested in donating, you can do so through Paypal to Roverage@hotmail.com. We are low on funds and need formula, medicine, and a second squirrel cage to help see us through the season! Please help!

First morning of Autumn! 61 degrees and breezy. Summer is gone, and all feels different.
