One Small Step for Tiny
I peeked my head out of the nest and looked around. The light hurt my eyes.
I had just opened them for the first time a few days ago. They are still learning how to work and the light makes me squint. I squeaked for my mama and listened for her answer. I could only hear the sound of those things that mama called ‘birds’. She told me that they steal food from squirrels, so I knew that they wouldn’t be any help. My tummy was growling louder now so I slowly put my paw out of the nest.
My little feet have been in a nest all of my life, when I step out of the nest I don’t know how to make them grab the tree. I try to hold on, but I’m just not that good at it. Then, the worst thing ever happened...
