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!
