In the beginning.......

In loving memory of our Pooter who we love so much. Pooter will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever. This is my Pooter in the beginning. My Minnie had passed away two days before and then this little fellow needed a mommy. So I tried to hand raise him and what a wonderful time it has been.

 

Eyes Closed.....

Here we are a little older than the last picture. His eyes were still closed and he was just a helpless baby depending on my and I was depeneding on him too. He made me have to keep going for him and for Mickey and all the animal's in my care. That was one mighty little squirrel. My baby.....

 

My Baby...

So tiny and so helpless and I was the hand that got him through. The best feeling I have ever had was when I can make a difference even to the smallest of creation. This is the hardest time ever when we lose what we love with all our hearts. So hard.

 

My sweet baby.......

So tiny and pink. Just a total pleasure it was to raise this baby. I learned alot about squirrel's and their ways. The house feels strange without Pooter but we won't be here for more than a couple of weeks and it's on to the new,new place. What a nightmare moving has turned out to be but,once I took over and got everything worked out things are looking good about the new place. I just wish Pooter was going to get to enjoy that new screened in front porch. Just didn't see this coming.

 

Baby Days.....

These days were the most fun when he was still little and he was fun to play with. He was still a baby and had not yet developed his big biy ways. He taught me well and I learned and watched and respected him when he wanted his space and never took it personally, after all he was a squirrel and I a human. when he was calling for a mate I always stayed clear of his cage. He was very tame. I just gave him space when he was in heat.

 

Happy Days....

Pooter alway had fresh produce and nuts galore. His favorite was avocado!  I miss him tonight. Oh my baby son I miss you.

 

New Cage

This was Pooter's new cage as he was growing up and needed more room. As he grew I bought another cage llike this one and stacked it on top and so he had a floor to ceiling cage. I planned on building an outside encloser for him at the new place but,now that's not going to happen. Just sucks !   he is gone to soon way too soon!

 

Precious Pooter

My most recent picture of my beautiful little friend and baby boy. So handsome you are and cute as a little button. I am missing you something terrible and I know I always will. I just got finished weening a new little baby squirrel who came to us in August. Right during the move here I am hand raising another little male squirrel and I am thinking to myself " of all times for me to come into a baby squirrel why now?" Well Now I guess I know why. Pooter is gone and the baby is now in the floor to ceiling cage that would have stood empty without Pooter in it.  I look at this baby that I named Cooter and I know that I will love him  with everything in me and that  one day he will go too and I just have to wonder what does it all mean?   I don't understand this life that comes and goes like the waves on the shore. Most likely never will and all I can think is "it is what it is" Nothing more and nothing less.   I miss all my babies everyday and in every way.
