Big Mama thinks I'm ready to be outside by myself for the day. Again, the rest of the family is not so happy about it. I think I'll be OK. I've been exercising and practicing my climbing. When a cat's in the yard and the other squirrels sound the alarm, I know that I need to run to the highest spot in the tree.
The first thing that I do is have a hearty breakfast. Squirrels eat a lot because we need lots of energy to do all of that climbing. A squirrel NEVER skips a meal!
I feel proud that Big Mama trusts me to be careful. When it gets close to the time for the big warm circle in the sky to go to sleep, I sit in the tree and wait for one of the family to come get me. I climb into the cage and have a nice meal before hitting the sack for the night.
After a long day in the trees I am tired, but very, very happy.
Tiny doesn't need a Chaperone!
