I saw it on the other side of the glass, seemingly teasing Church. Just a little guy being a jerk. Then I realized the window was open a crack and had no screen in it. No biggy, the cat can't get out, and that squirrel won't come in because CAT. Wrong.
Of course squirrel runs across the ledge towards the opening, of course cat follows. Instead of running AWAY from the small opening containing the cat, it ran towards and through it.
THEN IT WAS IN THE LIVING ROOM. I saw it, but it happened so fast I was powerless to prevent it. Terrifying.
MrGhostBoobs didn't believe me when I said "Squirrel! Squirrel in the house! Grab the cat!"and walked over to see what I was grabbing Buddy away from. Thats when the little squirrel JUMPED UP HIS LEG AND ONTO HIS BACK. I grabbed the cat and ran away with her.
It was straight up Christmas Vacation level hilarity... Only with the added danger of young cat and ornery BuddyDog. I threw Church into the bedroom and Buddy outside with the Shep while MrGhostBoobs opened the front door.
While I was throwing animals hither and yon, the squirrel dismounted and instead of running out the front door the squirrel ran all over house before taking refuge under dishwasher. We brought the dogs in and closed the kitchen off and left the door open, hopefully it runs off.
WTF SQUIRREL? You're apposed to run AWAY from predators, not towards them. Jackass.
