While I was waiting to be picked up by my Mom and sister for my weekly trek to see Dad in the hospital Thursday (Not fully realizing at the time what the day would have in store), the “Squirrel Alarm” outside my front door was sounding off loud and clear… the eardrum scraping screeching coming from both trees near my front yard. I couldn’t spot the wailer in my tree, but found the noisemaker that was up in arms in the neighbor’s tree. I also quickly discovered what the source of the “trouble” was. I grabbed my camera, and all of the photos in this post were taken in this same setting….
Uh oh! One of my sciurines in arms has sounded the alarm! I wonder what’s up! Hopefully it’s just another false alarm like when Ralph stubbed his toe on that giant acorn last week and….
HOLY SHIT!!!! Is that what I think it is!?!?!?
Well, poop. Looks like the stupid tree rat has spotted me. Not that it will keep such a skilled hunter as myself from having a nice, fat squirrel supper tonight.
Does he see me? Does he see me!?!? Oh shit, I think he does! What to do, what to do!?!?!?
Maybe if I just lay here and look cute, the pussy beast will ignore me! Yeah, that’s the ticket!
You can’t stay up in that tree forever, you no good little tasty morsel. I’m in no hurry though….. take your time. It’ll just work up my appetite even more.
No good little……… what!?!? Hey, you can’t talk to me like that! I’m a squirrel and I have rights too! I have the right to life, liberty, and………. um….. life! And if you think for one minute that some internet lolcat reject is going to intimidate me on my own turf….. well, let me tell you something mister, you’ve got another thing coming!!!!
(Licks lips) Not in aaaaaaaany hurry at all. Take your time, pal……………………
Oh geez….. what am I gonna do? Is there a deus ex machina in the house!?!?!?
I hope you enjoyed today’s little Saturday Squirrel play with a cliffhanger that will never be resolved. Have a great weekend everyone!
Hey, sewer rats gotta eat, too, you know……ha!
True. That’s why he stops by my door in the first place since he knows what a pushover I am…
Something tells me Mr. TreeRat will do some kind of Tarzan trick and swing away from danger on that limb……Mr. AttackCat will have to settle for a beetle or passing bird…….and the eternal standoff shall continue!
Hopefully it will be a Tarzan trick and not one that his cousin George of the Jungle was better known for!
I put my money on the squirrel. They’ve wailed at me before, just for walking by their tree!
It doesn’t take much to upset a squirrel. They’re drama queens, every one of them…
Strangely, I just posted about the animosity of cats and squirrels too.
Can’t everyone just get along?
He looks too cunning (and cute) to be eaten by some mangy cat.
Sewer Rat would like to have a word with you about calling him mangy…… just as soon as he hacks up this hairball.
I’d put my money on the squirrel. The cat doesn’t have a chance. He’d get up the tree, look down, and be too nervous to do anything. Go Squirrel!
You’re right…. and you never hear about the fire department having to rescue a squirrel from a tree.
What a fun watch. Patience at both ends of the tree!
Hopefully the squirrel has plenty of nuts hidden up there so he doesn’t have to come down!
Cute pictures! Lolcat!
I’m pretty sure that wasn’t a word when I went to school…
Nice diversion! Hope you are well friend.. cute pics!
Diversions are my strength. There is always happiness to be found somewhere…
