Pip and Squeak thought they'd spent a week or two with us. Originally found abandoned in an eletricity meter box by my father. They were brought home. They were about a day old when they were found.
They were called away on matters that required their squirrely attention. Probably got tired of the odd combination of dog's milk supplement + vaseline screen. Not to mention the pesky kids uttering high-pitched squeals of delight that were torturing their squirrely sense of hearing, maybe it was just all that lovin' that finally did them in.
Pip "belonged" to Nitty; and Squeak to Deedoy. And they were loved by all who knew them.
Squeak was the first to leave.

Squeak: he was with us from13/09/2008 - 24/09/2008
