True Story

Early this morning, as I was walking the dogs, I was startled by something falling from the Maple tree. Made quite a racket, actually.

It was two young squirrels embroiled in battle.

Maybe it’s all a matter of being in the right place at the right time, but I’ve never seen a single squirrel fall from a tree before, let alone two of them.

They didn’t even separate when they hit the ground. In fact, they looked just like a cartoon… rolling in a ball of dust; tails and legs and stars flying.

Damn. I never have a camera handy when the kewl stuff happens, but I sketched this reenactment of the actual events for you.

The fight continued for about 15 seconds.

Then they suddenly looked up, looked at each other, raised their paws to their cheeks and screamed “OMG DOGS!” in their squeaky little squirrel voices, and they raced back up the tree.

(Okay, so I made that last part up. Neither of them really resembled Macaulay Culkin that much.)
