I Know I'll Catch Him This Time

We let Q burn off a little energy running around yesterday. He wasn't so interested in playing with the bouncy ball, but he chased this squirrel clear around the park. The squirrel was kind of getting lazy, so I wondered if Q might actually catch him.

Squirrels have gotten such a bad rap lately. The whole Mtn. View attack squirrel incident has led to the trapping and killing of squirrels in that park. It's not their fault! Too many people have been feeding them!

One time in college a squirrel jumped out of a trash can and onto my then-boyfriend's leg. He squeeeeeeeeeled and jumped about 3 feet high and did a complete 360 in the air. It was pretty impressive.

Fourthbreakfast - I've been to that park and seen the squirrels doing their thing! Agreed that it's the fault of those who feed the critters on purpose.

Mayberry - who jumped three feet in the air? The boyfriend or the squirrel?!

It's fun to watch small children and small animals - both of them pretty cute little critters. :-)
