eek! Squirrel in the house!

hubby accidently let a squirrel in the house, still trying to get him out. I had to rush around to get all the cats and kittens in a safe place and to keep the door open so the rodent hopefully will run outside. So far he's run in the living room, the dining room and now is hiding in the sun room.

Man, that happened to me once when I was home alone, about 12 years old. I think it came down the chimney. I used lots of books to make a sort of path from the living room to the front door and blocked the other doors, and it finally ran outside. Whew, what a memory!

whew, finally the squirrel left. we had one window open in the living room because I knew the squirrel was hiding under the couch , so hubby was poking under it , and the squirrel ran up the table that was next to the window and took a real flying leap out there, it was hilarious to see him fly.

He finally left? Good.
If you couldn't get him out, I was going to say that I know a couple guys.... they work discreetly....

Too funny Pacanis. And Texasgirl, that movie is a classic. Our family watches it ever year around that time.
