Squeeky the Squirrel

Squeeky fell out of a tree when he was only 2 weeks old. He had no hair and was still pink. We bottle fed him every two hours all day and all through the night for almost 2 months. He is now 9 months old!

Squeeky is an indoor squirrel, who ventures outdoors every now and then.

Some of Squeeky's favorite foods are carrots, pecans, mandarins, bannans, sunflower seeds, hibiscus seeds, totsoi, honey nut cheerios, snap peas, grapes, acorns, pine cones, dewberries, and wheat bread.

To keep his teeth filed down he loves to chew on pecan wood and persimmon wood that we gather from our forest.


  1. How cute is Squeaky ???? So Cute !

  2. What a magnificent little fellow! You did well by him (he looks handsome and full of himself!) The good news is, next time you find a critter, get yourself a good night's sleep and spare the overnight feedings. (They don't need to be fed through the night when they get to 3 or 4 weeks old, and then they only need feedings every 4 or so hours since at 4 weeks, once the eyes open, you can introduce solids!)
    Nice work and so pleased to hear about such caring people as the two of you!
