Who We Are

I Knew It!

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  We had an invasion here at Ao4 Headquarters!  It's true!  I've taken care of the problem, but it was most concerning!  It went something like this:

"What are you doing, Cammie?  Staring at the neighbors' house?"
"No, Maggie.  There's something down there!!!"

I knew there was something down there!  Either on the lower deck or below the upper deck.  But I knew it was down there!

"I WILL remove you from the premises - one way or the other!"

Mom went down to the lower deck and couldn't find anything -- but she knew I was right.  We Sibes always know these things!

I knew my involvement was necessary -- so I leapt into action:

"Aunt Cammie!  No!  Don't do it!"
"I have to handle this, Mags!  I have to!"

I knew it was up to me!  Mom couldn't find it (must be associated with her sense of direction...).  Dad was out of town.  Maggie is brave, but I must protect my puppy!  Zim ... well, let's face it - Zim would make friends with it.  I made my move!

"Save yourself, Aunt Cam!"
"Don't try to stop me you guys!  Open the gate to the lower deck, Mom!"
"Aw, c'mon, Cam!  Can't he just stay here?"

Mom opened the gate, and down I went!

"Cammie is so brave!!!"

It took me no time whatsoever to locate the intruder!


By now, you might be wondering what was up there.  Are you ready for this???  A SQUIRREL!  Making his nest in our deck!  A SQUIRREL!!!

"You've got a lot of nerve, Squirrel!  Now CLEAR OUT!"
"I have your six if you need anything, Ca---oooh!  Look!  A leaf!"

It's gone now, and I had the situation well in hand.  I was fully prepared to call in the big guns -- you know, Molly the Wally over in the UK -- but I took care of it.  We are squared away!!!

What?  Oh, fine.  After Dad got back and our winds died down, he went up with a ladder and removed the nesting materials.  But it was my idea AND I'm the one who found him.  That squirrel KNOWS not to come back to Ao4 Headquarters!!!

Job well done!


PS:  Speaking of Molly, she (and others) have been asking when I'm going to bring my Dear Cammie column back.  We all put our heads together and have come up with a plan.  Maggie will post about it tomorrow!


  1. Pawsome Cammie. We are so impressed with your sleuthing skills. Darn right of daddy to get rid of the horrid pesky tree rat. Mind you I'd have just gone for deading it. Play bows to you my fine friend. Keep you eyes peeled though as you never know it may come back. I had a nice few chases today too. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh Cammie just send him on over ours way cos our dad feeds the little scoundrels.....our dad is not well in the head.

  3. EXCELLENT JOB CAMMIE... You really showed that Tree Rat who's Place he was TRYING to invade!!! WELL DONE!

  4. I don't know why those things think they could trespass any time they want. Could find

  5. PeeS.... YES ! your post Popped right up today... no problems..
    So did Lily's. This is crazy strange... sort of like that Tree Rat that you got rid of !!!

  6. Good job Cammie! That squirrel should have known better than to try to bunker down at the Army HQ!

  7. We can't believe a Squirrel would try to build a house on your deck! That is outrageous!

  8. Sneaky no-good squirrels! Good work Cam.

  9. Apparently Abby and Zim went to the same School of Home Defense... Abby always wants to play - with the squirrels, the rabbits, the moose, etc.... Glad you were on the ball, Cam! You might want to talk to you backup about her attention span - Maggie having your six is only helpful if she actually remembers that she's supposed to watch your back! Heehee! Nice work, Cam!
