I looked surprised to my grandmother’s smile, who told me :
- “Is Veverita - the squirrel and she came to visit us because she know the walnuts keeping place from our attic. Every winter, when is snowing, this “nuts thief" is coming to get some food.”
Grandma gave me some biscuits and nuts and told me:
- “Let her know you”
I have wandered how I will meet a squirrel, but not really understand what she meant, I went behind grandma and I remained electrified, taking care of my moves.
- Do not make sudden moves. Do not scare her!
Grandmother began to whisper softly, knocking one another two nuts. The buzz of walnut shells and the smell of crushed biscuits and nuts let Veverita to descend from attic and to approach somehow fearful to us.
Grandma threw a walnut at the end of the first ladder and waited until the squirrel hurried down and took it. After she ate it, she looked at us questioning if we'll give her more. Grandma threw another nut, this time closer to us.
- You can try now, but move very slowly your hands, said grandmother.
I stretched one biscuit to her and she came with small steps, closer and closer. Then she rushed with speed and took the biscuit with her little front paws, enjoying it with her little mouth.
After a while we became close friends. Each time when I saw her traces on the snow, unknown to anyone, I slipped from my room to feed my "outlaw friend".
Playful lively reddish was running from attic and was climbing in hazel tree near our house, swinging without fear on branches then disappeared throwing from a tree into another.
I adore those furry balls that filled with tenderness my soul and warmed my heart, don't you?
