So, when I saw this little black squirrel guy, I, of course, went over to say hello.
It was like fantasy! My little squirrel buddy seemed happy to let me near.
He even noticed me and turned to listen to me compliment him on the fluffiness of his tail.
But then, when he decided to take our friendship to the next interspecies level, and started to approach me, I hightailed it out of there.
Back at home, I remembered that I am friends with some pretty special fluffy-tailed animals that don't have rabies or ticks.
But they sure do have flexible spines.
