A Happy Ending…

Photobucket
This was CH early morning late March giving Squee the last feeding that we would get to give our little squirrel that toddled on wobbly baby legs into our yard. His story is here and here.

Squee as we arrived at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic and we reluctantly turned him over to the good people there so he could begin his journey back to where squirrels belong in the wild. Reluctant only because we became bonded to him and he was too sweet and cute for words. He loved CH and CH’s rough little tummy rubs. Well, rough little tummy rubs gently given to a little teeny squirrel body.

Yesterday we were back at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic for their Open House and to see our little squirrel Squee. The Open House was packed and we found it fun and interesting but we had one little someBODY on our minds.

We found him in no time and one of the volunteers recognized us and looked on the paperwork on the clipboard and yep it was for sure our little Squee. She stuck her finger through the bars and he curled up around it and let her scratch his tummy. She said he was the only squirrel to quit his syringe feeding and stay so friendly. Minutes later CH got to rough that little tummy up too.

Saying good-bye. Toodles Squee! Have a wonderful little squirrel life. He is scheduled for release this week with three other little cuties. Two boys, two girls. They will stick together. Be taken to the wilds of someone’s rural property in their box. Box mounted on a tree and a new life begins.

A happy ending for our little Squee. See ya! Bye! It was fun!

It has gotten a little busy in our lives and we have places to go things to see and the Tiny Ten to tend and books to read and family to see and wine tastings to do and hammock time and flowers to smell and FOOD to grill and eat and well you get the idea! So I am going to take a little break from blogging. Take care all and I will see ya soon!

  1. What a great update. I’m happy to hear that Squee is doing so well.

    Don’t be gone from blogging for too long. I need Tiny Ten updates and pictures so that I can live vicariously through you.

  2. We’ll not soon forget the story of little Squee and how you and CH saved his little life…..hopefully he’ll live a long and healthy life thanks to you all and the rehabbers and in a tiny part of his little squirrel brain he’ll remember the kind humans who were his first “foster family” ! Bless you….and enjoy your break from blogging! You will of course be missed………….

  3. I need to be busy today, but just can’t resist stopping and checking in on some blogs!! What can I say, I think I have an addiction!

    Cute, sweet little Squee. You and CH were instrumental in seeing that he had a good start on life and I hope he’ll live a long and happy one! I know it must have been heartwarming to see him looking so perky and healthy and ready to get on with life!

    Enjoy your blogging break!

  4. Sniff, sniff. What a sweet story. And what a cutie Squee is. I know it was hard to say good-bye, even though you know it’s best for him. Hope you have a wonderful time in your travels. Be sure to check in once in awhile! We’ll miss you!

  5. Well if this isn’t the best follow up story complete with pics Pix!! So cute. Enjoy every minute away from blog land. I’m pretty much on the same page, chapter and verse as you dearest. See you when I see you! xx Margie

  6. Ah Pix, what a heartfelt post, wonderful photos of little Squee and a happy ending too. Sounds like there is a lot going on at the tiny ten, enjoy…Greetings from Maine, Julie.

  7. How wonderful to go back and visit with Squee. A final goodbye to him and godspeed. Enjoy your break my friend. I will be checking back in the future. I understand. I am losing my inspiration to blog lately.

  8. I will miss your posts from the Tiny Ten…have a good break! See you when you return (but please keep in touch!)…

  9. Waah, this is so heartwarming! I think I’ve fallen in love with little Squee myself. Thank you guys, as well as the people at the Wildlife Center. I’m sure the little guy will soon have a grand time doing squirrel-y things in his new hacienda.

    And I hope you enjoy the blogging break, although it’s less of a ‘blogging break’ than a wonderful holiday with loved ones. Crank up the driving music and enjoy the summer! :)

  10. Thank you so much for this heartening good-news. I wondered how Squee was doing. You and CH did a marvelous thing caring for him and taking him to the center. I know He’ll be a dandy out in the wild with Mother Nature.

    I hope you have an enjoyable Summer! Take lots of photo during your break from blogging.
    I miss you already!

  11. Oh my my…he is so so so cute!! Loved the first picture. CARING, LOVING, …it portrays every positive feeling of this Universe. Great work, Pix. :)

  12. Squee’ is so cute. You did the right thing. I’m glad that I found your blog again. Your photos are wonderful, as ever.
    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I found the sleeping squirrel photo on Google images. Could never catch a squirrel that asleep around here.
    I will be following you, again. Take care.

    • Hi Farmlady! Welcome to Under the Oaks! Thanks for the visit, I just had to comment about your squirrel photo and the deck job. I had a good laugh over The Prospector leaving you with the job cause he had other “stuff” to do… :lol:

Just say "hey"! Say more if you want, that's good too :)
