On August 2, 2018 we lost our precious Peekaboo, the smiling bat that we all loved so very much. Unbeknownst to us, Peekaboo had a genetic disorder called iron storage disease. Thankfully, this disease is painless; Peekaboo did not show the symptoms for over 8 years, and gave no indication that she did not feel well until the very end. Her loss is almost more than we can bear, but her Legacy will live on in the hundreds of pictures she allowed us to take, and seemingly posed for, over the past 8 years.
During her time with us, we were able to give her the best, most enriched life possible – a life where she never wanted for anything. For that we will always be grateful.
Peekaboo educated millions of people through Facebook and YouTube. We hope this video gives you a glimpse of the beautiful soul she was, and the joy she brought to so many people. Most of all, she educated millions of people to the wonder of bats through her online photos and “Happy Monday” posts on our Facebook page.
Donations received in Memory of Peekaboo will be used for the lifetime care of the Michigan 90. Peekaboo was among the first to welcome them when they reached Bat World Sanctuary.
Goodbye, precious, sweet, beloved Peekaboo. There will never be another like you.
