Chipmunk cartoon channel

(I’m looking back to June 2013, when we were letting the cats go out all the time, because they had figured out how to put their claws in the sliding screen door and pull it open.)

Chipmunk cartoon channel here. Not sure which cat brought it into the living room. It was running from the screened windows to the screened door, back and forth and back and forth.

Finally I got it off the screen door and onto the deck. At which point Sushi started chasing the thing up and down the length of the deck, because we have bamboo screening!

I finally shrieked at Sushi and chased her into the house, as the chipmunk continued a forward trajectory. It figured out the bamboo screen, went up and over, and down to safety.

It’s not even 11am yet, and I’m exhausted.

They are never ever going outside again. Like, ever.
