Who is Fred I am sure you are asking? Fred is my squirrel friend. I was just calling him a squirrel but then mom said he needed a name and we decided to call him Fred. We live in a newer neighborhood so there are not a lot of good places for squirrels to hang out but mom has been busy planting trees and the neighbors as well and slowly but surely the little squirrelys are making their way to my house! YAY!!! Gramma gave my cats a bird feeder that mom put in the ground right outside our front window. It is down fairly low and kind of in the
bushes, but lucky for me, the squirrels and wabbits are enjoying it too! I think Fred makes his way all the way to my window just because he knows that I feed him.
Wabbits are my very favorite animal but squirrels are a close second! When Fred makes an appearance I get so excited I practically jump out of my fur! He is a funny guy as he comes sometimes like 3-4 days in a row right at noon and then I don’t see him for days or weeks but then he will come at 5 am a few days in a row. I don’t know why he doesn’t show at the same
time everyday, it would make my life easier. Maybe he has a family or a job and he can only get away certain times. No matter, really, I am just so thrilled for every time he is in my window. I usually am sitting in my cuddle bed when he arrives but then I get so excited I kind of fall off my bench and out of my bed and stand at the window barely breathing! You cannot imagine my excitement. Fred has no fear of me, so he must understand the concept of windows. Mom says I don’t understand the concept of windows because I have totally scratched up the
lower window frame. If we ever move mom says we will have to either get a new window or if possible get the frame refinished and that may come out of my savings. I just dig into the wood trying to get out to Fred don’t know what the big deal is. The other thing is that I like to wake everyone up when Fred arrives – I howl and bark like a mad dog – mom really likes that, especially at 4 am when Fred is early! Yes, sometimes I do roll out of my bed to go to my window at that time of day in the summertime!
So, that is the answer to the question – Who is Fred? He is my personal squirrel and I just sit in my window hoping he stops by again really soon!
