A snap out of the window of Watney the squirrel who has recently moved to Wapping. In an exclusive interview with Pootling Around Watney stated that although Shadwell had better transport links than Wapping, he was ‘looking to find somewhere to raise a family’ and that he was ‘hoping for an historic drey with period features and maritime character’.
Rumours over Watney’s hipster lifestyle have persisted and it is believed that by moving Watney hopes to avoid falling back into arguments over where the Aldgate/Whitechapel/Shadwell/Stepney/Bow/Limehouse boundaries lie.
Watney has sought to avoid the limelight and this was one of the first times he has been spotted after emerging from an alleged self-imposed hibernation, though Watney states this is not true and he does not sufffer from metabolic depression. The troubled squirrel still faces questions about his past as some commentators have suggested he may be biologicaly female.
