Chasing the Squirrel (December 2009)

Early this morning, cats and humans looked up to see Hershey higher in the trees than he has ever ventured before:


What could he possibly be doing up there?


Aha! It's a SQUIRREL! (if you don't believe us, click the image to enlarge:)



Just a tiny bit further now . . .


"Almost . . . GOTCHA!"


Hey!! No fair jumping to that other tree:


Tootsie and Schooner come running:



In hopes of heading off the squirrel, Tootsie scurries up a neighboring tree . . .



But even with two cats in pursuit, the squirrel manages to evade capture:


Carefully, Tootsie makes her way back down . . .


pauses for a sniff . . .


and continues her descent:


On the ground again, she and Hershey come to terms with their disappointment:



"I guess he really is gone, right, Toots?"




"At least we still have each other, Hershey":

These are top quality climbing cats. So kind of you to provide them with such good trees. I wish my apes would provide me with such good trees. I have to climb the neighbour's trees pfft!
