Squeak is growing & thriving


Squeak today. Eating live food.

Message to me from Kerry Dwyer:

He is still going strong and now on live food. Unfortunately it doesn’t look as though he will make the 600 grams he needs to be to go out, before winter sets in. He may have to hibernate in the house.

Few weeks back. In the cream cheese. That was the day after he landed in a bowl of pasta and was covered in tomato sauce.


Shortly after discovered in a Paris field by a neighbor’s dog. His sister, Pip, alive then didn’t make it.

ORIGINAL POST THAT I REBLOGGED: (photos of Pip & Squeak when first rescued and the dog who found them) http://kerrydwyer.net/2013/09/02/mrs-tiggywinkle-your-babies-are-doing-well/

Big cyber hugs to all who helped save this adorable life.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    He will have a warm, cosy place for the winter!!! 🙂

    Such good news to hear that Squeak is still thriving and progressing well; he does look good. His weight will improve but if not enough to set him free before winter, as you say, he can hibernate in the house; he will be fine.

  11. I wonder how interesting Squeak’s world seems to him. Imagine us living in his world and trying to adjust……we probably wouldn’t do as well. I don’t want to eat live food.

  12. That Squeak IS happy because he’s smiling in the picture (OMG) and licking the wine bottle. People, what are you teaching this little guy? ;-D

  13. Clouds N Cups says:

    Let’s hope he is able to gain enough weight for the hibernation…(fingers crossing)…

    Happy October, my friend!

    May this month be filled with joy and wondrous news for you and your loved ones!!

    Take care and be well, always~ Cheers!! 😀

    • The way he’s eating he’s got a good chance of gaining weight but winter’s approaching in parts where he is (France) and it’s looking like the little guy will hibernate among pasta, cream cheese, and wine.

      Many warm wishes are returned to you that your October is blessed.

      Hugs & more hugs, 🙂

      • Clouds N Cups says:

        Wow…what a great place to hibernate…LOL…

        Thank you for your warm blessings too, my friend!

        Cheers!! 😀

      • You made me laugh with your comment about what a place to hibernate. This little guy has it good and fingers crossed he’ll continue to thrive and grow to make it to freedom come spring. Always a pleasure to have you drop by. Have a great weekend. 🙂

    Thanks for all your kind messages. It is great to know that there are such positive thoughts and prayers out there for him 🙂

  17. Clowie says:

    I’m glad he’s doing well. The cream cheese looks nice, but I’m not so sure about the live food, BOL!

  18. Perhaps it’s time to rename “Squeak” to “Roar!” 🙂
