We Almost Lost Otis!
Posted By: Rupert, 08-04-2012, 07:46 PM

I looked out my office window, and there was Otis, scoping out a new and forbidden plant. I guess his last victory over Mrs Rupert gave him some false confidence that he could get away with anything.

Sneaky little devil....

I knew it was only a minute or so before he would be munching on those tender leaves.....

The I saw him duck for cover, at the same time I heard the hammer pull back and click on Mrs Rupert's pistola....

Like a Marine drill instructor, she hollered out "Drop to the deck and spread them you little stinking rat!"
.....and he did! No one said Otis was dumb! He knew it was all on the line!

Naturally, I intervened just in the nick of time......but explained to Otis, I may not always be around to save his little Squirrely butt!

Regards! ...Never a dull moment around here!

I think it's more of as long as Mrs. Rupert doesn't get too cross with Otis!!!

I look forward to the next Otis adventure. Coming soon I imagine to Pentaxforums near you.

That is one chubby looking squirrel Rupert... I bet there's a few hawks around that would wonder if there's a low fat version.

Good point Norm - around here also the hawks would be watching him lounging like that - the hawks or the Turkey Vultures / Buzzards.........
