Percy: We had a little excitement around here yesterday.
Cyndi: Merci, Marcus and Sam were outside barking nonstop. Buddy was inside barking.
Buddy: Well, of course, I was inside barking. You don't think being inside is going to stop me from participating in important canine business, do you?
Micah: So what were you all barking at? I was too busy hiding behind the heater until I was sure the thunder boomies had passed for good.
Merci: We were barking at a squirrel hanging onto the neighbor's privacy fence as if his life depended on it.
Rusty: One of the neighbor dogs was trying to tear the fence down to get to him, so, yeah, his life did depend on it.
Cameron: So the squirrel was paralyzed with fright. Jan didn't think he moved at all, but then she saw the photos and realized he did, but barely. Just one paw a little to the left or right.
Sam: Jan came out trying to find what we were carrying on about. She ran back into the house to grab a camera. He was so still that for a moment she thought he'd died there and wondered how he still managed to hang on. Then she started at him until he finally blinked. Or winked?
Marcus: Right after this Jan fixed breakfast and for the first time since he arrived Micah didn't appear. She couldn't find him and feared he'd slipped out when she flew in to grab a camera and went out in a downpour calling for Micah. Percy finally gave him away when he stood on the mantel staring below.
Percy: Are you upset with me for giving away your hiding place, Micah?
Micah: No, not this time. I was served breakfast behind the space heater. It was kind of like dining at a fancy restaurant except the view was a bit obstructed.
Cyndi: You've never been to a fancy restaurant. How would you know what it's like?
Micah: I've seen a few on the internet. You can see anything on the internet, sometimes whether you want to or not.
Oh Bast, what we wouldn't give to find a parlyzed Skwerl...ReplyDelete
Oh, I think that squirrel was very smart, don't you? If he was still the doggy might go away.. Mommy said she is not a squirrel fan.ReplyDelete
Poor, poor wittle tree rat. Bet he was trying to blend in with the fence.ReplyDelete

Funny little squirrel, he really had no other choice did he?ReplyDelete
Mom bean says once upon a time at our old house, she had gone outside and a squirrel ran up the steps, suddenly realized she was there and flattened himself out on the step. "you can't see me" It was really funny for her, but we would have liked to have had a chance to chase him!
Micah, you is furry funny! There is efurrything on the internets!
Sasha, Sami, & Saku
You found yourself one of those camouflage squirrels.ReplyDelete
That squirrel had himself in quite a predicament. Did he make it to safety? We are glad Micah was inside and safe. That was quite an exciting time around your place. Hugs and nose kissesReplyDelete
That must have been exciting! We've never been so close to a squirrel before. They always taunt us from the other side of the windows. Great photos too!ReplyDelete
Silly squirrel, but he must have been soooooo scared, not knowing he was safe all along! Look at him...trying to blend into the fence!ReplyDelete
