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":


  1. Never have we ever seen such wonderful squirrel chasing, tree climbing cats as Hershey and Tootsie! Schooner is good back up too!

  2. Hello there!!! **waves paws**

    We are from New Brunswick so it's nice to meet a bunch of fellow Maritimers!

    Your climbing skills are very impressive! I am jealous as I haven't been allowed out much due to too many wild BIG cats and coyotes. Nothing beats being high up on the branches with the wind in your fur!

  3. Those are fantastic pictures. You two are great tree climbers. You almost got that silly squirrel. We love to chase squirrels too. It is so much fun. Have a great week.
