Unusual Marked Squirrel


One day last week, on Wednesday, I was doing dishes,
I happened to look outside. I spotted this squirrel,
moving around digging, looking for food. I noticed
something about this one squirrel, very unusal about

One day last week, on Wednesday, while watching
this one squirrel, I noticed there was something
about it's tail. I kept watching, hoping the
squirrel would come closer. At first it looked
like the tail had a glow to it, closer the
squirrel got.

One day last week, on Wednesday, I could see the
squirrel more clearly. The tail has a white trim all
around the the edges of it's tail, it's beautifully
marked. I've seen alot of squirrels, but none with
it's tail marked like that.

One day last week, on Wednesday, the squirrel
was looking for food, another squirrel came
along. I watched them both, the squirrel with
the white trim tail, raised up on the back legs.
Watching the other, then ran after the other
squirrel. It was like the squirrel was saying,
this is my terrority, stay out. Ran the other
squirrel off three times.

One day last week, on Wednesday, I never had
seen a squirrel marked like that. It's beautiful.
I told my husband about it. He said, it doesn't
happen very often, but they can be marked like
that. It's a rare marking on a squirrel.
Certainly, hope this squirrel stays around.
