As most of you know by now, three of our family members are felines. Most of their entertainment comes from guarding the four bird feeders that I keep filled around our property. I love the symphony of sound and movement the birds and squirrels and chipmunks have brought to our home.
Well, the other day, as they were parked under the bird feeders, waiting for one of them to risk landing and being pounced upon, and as the birds and squirrels were shouting objections their way from nearby tree limbs, a wise little chipmunk apparently crept through the hanging screen on the front door…
Later in the day, when the cats were in, they quickly alerted us to the fact that we had a critter amongst us, and we had a hilarious time moving furniture, letting the cats help corral the little cutie, chasing the poor thing from one hiding place to another, trying to shepherd him back out the door.
We never did see him actually get out the door, but none of our kitties have acted as though he’s still here, so I’m assuming he made his way safely home to his family. Very funny scene here for about a half hour.
