Ms. Fancy Striped Pants was the proud mother of two healthy furballs, Steeler and Eddie. She’d lie there day after day, content to nurse them into becoming big strong boys.
One day she heard the hair raising screech of car tires in front of her house, so being the good neighbor she was, she left her boys tucked in bed and went to have a look. Sadly, her friend Maude, the grey squirrel, met her untimely death with Uniroyal and left an orphaned daughter, Nut-Tasha. She knew there was only one thing to do and that was to take Nut-Tasha home and nurse her as if she were her own.
Sometimes we all need a little help now and then, especially the less fortunate.
