With all the time that I'm spending outside I'm really starting to like the big trees in the yard. I run up and down them to practice my scampering skills. It's not a big surprise that the 3 P's and Big Papa don't like it one bit. If I go too high in the tree they start calling me and calling me until I come down. Sometimes I just don't feel like it even when they have a peanut! Sometimes a squirrel just needs some space.
On this particular day I was feeling pretty naughty. When they called and called I went higher up in the tree and hid. I was going to teach them a thing or two. Eventually they went inside and I really thought that I had them beat. I watched them get in the car and heard Big Mama say that they were late and had to go. I felt pretty proud of myself for tricking them into leaving me outside. All I had to do now was to wait for them to come back and get me.
What I didn't count on was that it was going to get dark and that they would still be gone. Suddenly I found myself all alone in the dark with nowhere to go. I found a hole in a tree and crawled in. It was dark and I was alone. I was thinking that maybe I wasn't so clever after all.
I didn't get much sleep that night. The next morning I went out into the tree to look for my family. No sooner did I climb down than I heard Persimmon run out the door yelling for me. She looked so happy to see me. She let me in the cage and gave me lots of treats and cuddles. I was so happy to be home that when we got inside I climbed right into the sleeve of her jacket and fell asleep.
Tiny's big night out!
