The Pipsqueak Posts, Episode 10: the one with the squirrel

Archie says: usually, if someone’s at the front door it’s a visitor who’s going to make a fuss of me, or the postman bringing something (and making a fuss of me — because (adds deep voice) Everybody Loves Archie). Today our visitor was a bit weird. One of the squirrels who usually jumps from the tree to the bird-feeder to scoff the seeds and fat-balls decided to climb up the porch.

Dexter: I was having porridge when the Senior Edit-paw-ial Assistant made a fuss and Mum went to the window to see who the visitor was. I can’t believe Archie interrupted porridge for a squirrel! (I like porridge. A lot. Got a bit on my whiskers.)
