A Visitor


I heard some clanking downstairs. “The cat?” I wondered.

Then something fell over.

So I nipped quickly down the stairs.

And this is what I saw.

Can you make it out?


Here, take a closer look.

It’s changed positions. Now it’s at the top ledge.

This is one of the perks of living so near to lots of flora. We call it our jungle.

Every morning when I hang the clothes up in the basement, I will see these little furry friends playing from branch to branch, tree to tree…. Sometimes I make up little stories about them – the Papa Squirrel, the Mama Squirrel and the adolescent one…

Here, I think this is the adolescent one who got stuck indoors, in between the grill and the window pane of my dry kitchen!

Dont worry – he hopped out shortly after I took this last photo. Needless to say, it was with a quick flick of his tail and then all that could be seen as the moving banana leaf and branch.

Bye Bye!
