Floppity is a Grandmother Squirrel

Isn't she a beautiful grandmother?
I hope I look this good
when I'm a grandmother!
Good going, Floppity!

Floppity is a Grandmother Squirrel!
About 8 years ago I first met little Floppity. I called her Floppity because she had tumors all over her little body and there was one on each ear which gave her floppy ears. She had a condition some call "squirrel pox". When I first saw her I fell in love with her. I fed Floppity shelled pecans every day and while she sat and ate them, I would give her Reiki (healing energy). After about two months, each of the growths dried up and fell off. She has never had any problems after that. Her first litter was affected with the pox and 2 out of the 3 babies died, but the third squirrel survived and healed. I called her Bumpy. Then Bumpy grew up and had a litter and I'm happy to report that her young are free of pox! Squirrels, and in fact all animals, love Reiki healing energy! If you are interested in learning Reiki, please contact me at and you can visit www.squirrelplanet to learn more about Reiki.

First Squirrel Crossing Sign in Austin

History is Made in Austin: First Ever Squirrel Crossing Sign!!!

Thanks to the squirrel conscious folks at Austin Parks and Rec at 200 S.Lamar for looking out for our furry tailed friends! All the little squirrels that like to hang out there at Butler Shores are very grateful... especially the baby squirrels. Bucky (see previous pages) let us know that often the mama squirrels get hit by cars that speed in and out of the Park on Riverside just west of Lamar. This leaves us with orphaned babies that need full time care... Thank you to the good people at Austin Parks and Rec. for caring enough to put up a Squirrel Crossing Sign! Let's hope to see more of these signs throughout Austin! Let's make Austin a "squirrel-friendly" town!
