The farmer began his search yet again. Finally he sees a little brown furry ball hiding under the bottom plate of the fireplace box which of course is bolted down. There is only about an inch between the plate and the bottom of the box and he managed to stay under there as far back as possible.
He tried everything to try to scare the little stubborn creature out to no avail. Apparently he fell down the chimney and the flu was open and the rest is history. So what to do! We didn't have a live trap and it was too late to buy one that evening. So the next best thing.
Little sneaky devil. Apparently the rope worked because he is no longer in the fireplace much to my mother in law's relief and mine. Mine? Well because the farmer threatened to light a fire and roast some squirrel......Gah!
How could she grow up to this so quickly? Seems like just a few days ago that she was that tiny fluff ball doing nothing but eating and pooping.
