One morning, cats and humans looked up to see Hershey higher in the trees that he has ever ventured before:
What could he possibly be doing up there?
Aha! It's a SQUIRREL! (click the image to enlarge:)
Hey!! No fair jumping to that other tree:
Tootsie and Schooner come running:
In hopes of heading off the squirrel, Tootsie scurries up a neighboring tree . . .
But even with two cats in pursuit, the squirrel manages to evade capture:
Sorrowfully, Tootsie starts backs down . . .
pauses for a sniff . . .
and continues her descent:
On the ground again, Tootsie and Hershey come to terms with their disappointment:
"I guess he really is gone, right, Toots?"
"Well, Hershey, at least we still have each other":
