The tale of the little rock squirrel.

Thursday December 17, 2009
This is Mr Rocky the rock squirrel, he lives in our yard, and this is the story of how he lost his mate.

One day a few days ago, Mr and Mrs Rock decided to move their three children from their house #1 to their house #2 (they have three houses that we know of). The kids are pretty big already, but they managed to get a hold of them one at a time in their mouths and carry them about 50 meters to the new location. After they were all safely tucked into the new house, Mrs Rock headed out to get something to eat. Unbeknown to Mrs Rock, Orange Cat was watching the house moving with much interest. As she was crossing the big open expanse of the driveway, Orange Cat saw his chance and pounced. I would have tried to save Mrs Rock, but it was too late. Orange Cat was very fast, and jumped over the gate and was gone, Mrs Rock squeaking the whole way. Mr Rock heard the commotion and poked his head out of the house and called to Mrs Rock. He called again several times later that day and then again the next morning. By the afternoon, he knew his true love was not coming back and he decided to move the kids again. One by one, he moved them back to the old house, safely away from Orange Cat, he thought. Then this morning, we saw Mr Rock moving the kids again! And unfortunately, Orange Cat was watching again! We are doing everything we can to discourage Orange Cat from coming in our yard (throwing rotten oranges at him) but things are not looking too good for the Rock family. Hopefully, the kids move out soon and Mr Rock can put his feet up and relax for awhile, at least until he finds a new honey!

Oh Kathy, that was just too sad to read but I did anyway. Poor Mr. and Mrs. Rock squirrel. Just get rid of that orange cat.
