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":
