Myles and I thought he was gone but actually the squirrel was on vacation for two weeks! A robin told us the Red Squirrel had gone to Cicero, Illinois for rest and recreation. I don’t know anything about Cicero, Illinois maybe for squirrels it is a lovely place to visit this time of year.
I don’t care where the Red Squirrel took his vacation. He’s back now and as mean as ever. Today, the Red Squirrel returned to the Oak Tree dumping bird seed husks down on us! Myles and I had to run fast to our porch. This time I think I saw the Red Squirrel holding a large basket. Where did he get that from Cicero?
The sun is out again, and I am hearing more birds singing when I come
home from school. Myles met me by the mailbox as usual to escort
me back to our house. Today coming up our long gravel path, Myles
ran ahead of me towards the big Oak in our front yard. The Oak Tree is where the Red Squirrel lives. When I got to the tree I heard Myles growling, and saw he was face to face with the Red squirrel.
I am right the squirrel is a giant, he is almost the same size as Myles.
A couple seconds later Myles and the squirrel were nose to nose. “Oh no,” I thought what is going to happen. Then I heard a weird sound come from Myles, and it wasn’t a bark. The squirrel turned and ran up the tree.
I looked at Myles and he was sniffing the tree. I think sound I heard from Myles was a burp!
It was 4:37 PM when Myles and I were walking slowly up the hill
and onto the gravel path that leads to our house. Myles meets me
everyday by our mailbox when I come home from school.
Today, Myles was extra grumpy, or growl-ie, his teeth were showing.
I didn’t know what to expect as we got closer to the front of the
house. Last night I opened the front door quickly and threw bird
seed onto the stump near the porch.
All of a sudden we heard a branch crack and leaves crunch. We looked in front of us and there was the evil, red squirrel. He is much bigger than I thought. He almost looks as big as Myles. I thought we might see the red squirrel again so I had packed a small bag full of bird seed in my pocket. I threw the bag onto the ground near the squirrel as we ran by him and up the steps onto our porch. I could not open the front door quick enough, but the squirrel was busy eating the bird seed.
I don’t know what will happen when I come home from school tomorrow.
It’s after school and Myles and I were chased in front of our house. We had to run onto the porch quickly because there is a turf war. The red squirrel has taken over our front yard by the porch and doesn’t like us around.
I do not eat acorns so I do not know why the squirrel is chasing us all around the yard. We are not squirrels either, and do not need to live in trees.
Leave us alone!
