Are the cats on strike or something?

The saga is over. The squirrel is dead!!! The little girl's grandad was so angry with it, he found it in woods at the back of his house and shot it dead. I don't quite know how he knew it was the same one, but there you are!

And the little girl got a new fur hat for the winter. That saved her from the cold wind. And snipp snapp snute så var eventyret ute!

Actually, if she wore a fur hat here in Britain, she'd probably get beaten up by an army of animal rights activists

Pff, poor squirrel. I'm sure there would have been another way to get it. Why must they always shoot animals when they do something bad? They don't do that with humans, do they?

Yes, and bang goes the army, then she could have a new uniform for the winter, not only a hat.
Seriously, animals with such wierd behavior is not good for the nature, thinking of that squirrel giving its genes to its offspring, I think fur hat is a better alternative.
