Nature's La-Z-Boy

Uploaded: October 08, 2009


Drats, she saw me. I've heard about that one. The Fuzzbutts say she's a decent sort, and gives them free walnuts. But they mentioned her weird obsession with aiming that black thing at them, interrupting their snack-time.

Personally, I don't care for walnuts. What I do like is a nice afternoon nap with the sun warming my lovely colors. But who can nap with her hovering around, making all those clicking sounds...

Maybe if I just lay here, not doing anything interesting, she'll get bored and go back to the squirrels...
