Our Pet Squirrel Eekie & Dachshund Mauzie

Yes, the cutest pet I ever had!
On November 30, 1984, on the day of my Paternal Grandmother's funeral in The Netherlands, I was cleaning windows outside with my chamois leather, here in Dublin, Georgia/USA.
Suddenly I heard some 'peeping' noise and sure enough no young birds could be around at that time of the year...
So I stepped over the fence, chamois leather in hand, and found Casey the neighbor cat chasing a baby squirrel in the garage of our back neighbors.
Scolding Casey the cat, she let go of the squirrel and I scooped him up.
This is a screenshot from an 8mm movie that is shown below...
Pieter was still at work for Campbell Soup in Chicago.
When husband Pieter did come home from Chicago, by 23:30 o'clock with his new Rollei lens, he made the FIRST Pet Squirrel Photo of 'Eekie' -  Eekhoorn = Dutch for Squirrel so I created Eekie.
He was so very sweet and I got him installed in a crate with hamster bedding and food.
Pieter did build him a cage with real branches so he could exercise too.
On Sunday, December 2 of 1984 we had just come home from a weekend with friends in Atlanta. With the fire place warm and cozy, I sat with Eekie in my lap and had cracked him some pecans to nibble on.

On Sunday, January 6 of 1985, we got a kitty harness with leash that Pieter's brother had bought us.
Via special courier it came straight from Horst, The Netherlands to us!
After our two special couriers went home, Pieter did make some 8mm movie segments in our office.
Me in my morning robe as to not get any pulls in my good clothing!
Here Mauzie-girl is seen with her cat-friend Casey, playing near the wood logs.
Eekie on Sunday, January 6, 1985 with kitty harness on leash in our office in the evening...
Sorry for the poor quality but you can see Eekie on my back and on the chair with Mauzie.
Eekie on the chair in our office, climbing on Dachshund Mauzie's back!
He climbs on the back of the chair and you can see him on my lap while I sit on the armrest of the chair...
Eekie our pet squirrel now is climbing all over me, on my head, in my neck and down my back.
Very funny pet!
He also loved to cuddle and getting kisses, tickling me with his fur!
As long as he was outside of his cage, he was a happy camper.
Such a cute little baby!
Oh, I would have a zoo, if they let me...
When opening a Pepperidge farm pack of Sugar Cookies (2), Eekie would climb up on you and nibble around it!
Photo shows Eekie doing just that on January 12...
Pieter with Eekie on January 13, in our veranda, just being released from his cage...
Climbing up on Pieter's pant leg...
Oh, I also did walk with him outside and he LOVED climbing up a tree on his leash and than getting back on my shoulder!
Mauzie the Dachshund LOVED to be Mama to other pets!
Once to a Guinea pig, a kitten and now a squirrel...
Eekie the squirrel loved to go 'dog back riding'...
We would walk on the driveway outside when Pieter would be coming home from work.
Such a fun duo!
We are so grateful for having these photos as all our photos from dear friend Natacha, our official house blessing on December 3rd and from Eekie on December 1st got ruined by Kodak and we received a new film roll...!
Eekie did climb up on Pieter's pant leg, and helped with writing the weekly letters to Mother Vedder,
Pieter's brothers and to his adopted daughter Liz.
Eekie is seriously proof reading!
These photos from January 13, 1985 are the LAST photos we got.
Sadly we found him dead on Wednesday morning on the 16th of January.
He'd peacefully crept inside his knitted woolen pouch to sleep and after having him for only 6.5 weeks, he was no more...
Very sad!
While I was knitting Pieter's thick woolen Irish Aran cardigan, he slept in my lap, cuddling underneath my knitting.
So when I was done, I did knit him a square and folded it over to sew it shut like a cone shaped pouch.
Earlier he'd always used paper towels to make a nest and sleep underneath.
Have any of you ever had a pet squirrel?

So happy with the converted 8mm movies by Costco onto DVD (just click it).
Their YesVideo program lets you edit snippets and also share them on Facebook or share via email.
However bad the quality at times, due to molds over the decades and with us crossing the Atlantic Ocean twice, it is a treasure of fond memories!
Thanks for your visit!

  2. Hello Mariette, What a lovable story! Eekie seemed very friendly and intelligent. I used to have tons of squirrels and chipmunks in my large yard, and had fun watching them scamper about, but I never tried to domesticate one. Those old movies are real treasures. You were wise to transfer them, so now they can be easily shared.

  6. Was sind das für schöne Erinnerungen, liebe Mariette, nein, ein Eichhörnchen war noch nicht in unserem Haus. Ich sehe sie selten, sie turnen auf den hohen Bäumen im Park und sind sehr scheu.

    Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende und schicke liebe Grüße mit.
    ♥Traudi.

  10. Eekie was so cute. You were meant to know each other. I believe you will never look at any squirrel in the same way as you did before Eekie.

    I had a pet squirrel when I was a teenager. Her name was Squirrely. She was very tame and sweet with my Mom, Dad, me, and my boyfriend (now husband). I found her when he and I were on a date at the park. We drove over her in the road before we realized she was a little creature instead of a leaf. Luckily the tires did not hit her. I told him to pull the car over, that was some kind of little animal in the road. He did. I emptied out my straw purse in the front seat of the car, jumped out, found the little baby sqiurrel in the road unharmed and put it into my purse.

    I took it home. It was alive with fleas and was barely old enough to have all of its fur. we treated it with cat flea powder and I fed the little thing with milk and rice baby pablum for the first week or so. Squirrely lived in a cage in the house while she was so tiny. She used to love to come out of the cage and run on us and up over the curtains.

    My Dad built a very large tubular shaped wire cage for her that had a little cedar shake house at the top of it and a long limb with branches for her to climb on. She lived several seasons in that cage that hung low from the apple tree. She liked kleenex and leaves in her cedar shake house, and believe it or not, every morning she would take the kleenex out and hang them on the branches in her cage to air out. If it started to rain, or before nightfall, she would gather them all up and take them back into her little house. She loved to be lightly sprayed with the garden hose every day in summer and loved to snack on apples. She was so sweet to the people she knew, but tried to bite those that she didn't know. My boyfriend and I got married and I moved away from home, but we decided squirrely would stay at my parents' house in the tree cage. I only lived a couple of blocks away and visited her often. She lived happily for a few years, I can't remember now how many. Then one morning my Mom woke up and looked out the kitchen window and Squirrely and her cage were completely gone. Someone had come into the yard and taken the whole setup. We always thought that it was one of the neighborhood kids that our Collie knew, because the Collie would have put up a fight otherwise. Till this day I hope that Squirrely bit the living daylights out of whoever took her and her cage. I hope she bit them until they bled the minute they reached in to grab her. I know she must have been so scared.

    Anyway, later that summer, my Dad was out in the driveway washing his car. Low and behold a small, chubby, fluffy tailed squirrel came right down the tree almost right to my Dad. (Squirrely never grew to have a long body and tail),but was chubby and had a very fluffy tail and a rounder face than most squirrels. My Dad couldn't believe that it could be Squirrely, but he sprayed the hose toward the squirrel and it started playing in the mist just like Squirrely always had. Every week when he washed the car that summer, Squirrely? would appear. After a while Squirrely? brought two little young squirrels with her. They would stay nearby and watch as my Dad sprayed Squirrely? but never would let themselves be sprayed by the hose.

    That was 43 years ago, and still to this day if I am visiting my Dad and see a chubby faced, fluffy tailed squirrel, I think it is probably one of Squirrely's great-great-etc grandbabies. That is why I think you will never see a squirrel again and not think of your little Eekie.

  17. What great photos. I'm not sure they all came through as there are some big gaps between some of your text, but the pictures you were able to share are wonderful. So very sweet of you to rescue little Eekie. At least he had 6 and a half weeks of a very good life.
