What is Up with Those Squirrels?!

The squirrels in the Squirrel Park are NUTS!! I was walking in the park with Mommy and I caught two squirrels unaware. I snuck up on them and then charged and they ran to the nearest tree which was only about 10 feet tall. I wanted to catch them so I jumped and jumped and jumped but I couldn't reach them. I stood under the tree and stared at them. They got more and more nervous and climbed up to the highest branches and tried to reach the tree above them, but they couldn't. I knew I had them! I waited and watched and then they did the craziest thing. Both squirrels jumped out of the tree and over me and landed on the ground behind me! I turned to chase them, but they got to the big tree before I could get there. What is going on?! Since when do squirrels try to fly? Since when do they jump out of trees rather than run down the trunks into my mouth? Have all the rodents in town gone mad? What happened to the rulebook?

Those squirrels are crazy!!! We found one on our hike the other day and it just sat there as we came closer and closer and closer. We got within 5 feet before it took off. Mum wouldn't let us chase because there was a road too close. But I know I coulda had him!
