When I left for work on Friday morning, I opened the door to find a squirrel outside on the lawn.  When I came out, she scrambled up a tree branch for a closer look at me.  She peered at me so intently (the way Sera does).  Sandy tends to hide behind branches and peek at me, hoping I can’t see her.  I went back inside for a handful of peanuts.  When I came back out, the squirrel got down onto the grass while I stood right there on the step (much like Sera does).  Sandy usually waits until I am back inside or I have walked away before she will pick up the food.  The only difference was the tail – this squirrel’s tail was a raggedy-looking stripey-gray (sorry – I was too excited, hoping it was her – I didn’t get my camera out).  Last time I saw Sera her tail was a reddish color.  I looked back through photos from my old phone – Sera’s tail used to be gray.  Do squirrel’s coats shed and grow in in different colors? I think they do because at one point Sera was mostly red, and then the fur seemed to be falling out.  At one time she had gray shoulders and reddish hips.  I will choose to believe that my friend is still around. Perhaps she’s been hiding from me the past few weeks because she was having a bad hair (tail) day?
