Lola the squirrel, my friend, She is afraid of the fierce falcon


told me once, because -if it spots Lola-
she had met a pretty cat will use her as food
that was very silly. for its pigeons to have a banquet:
The cat was so silly that he didn't know, “You know those are its children
Toronto was the city where he lived. and they are hungry all of the time!”.

The squirrel was really astute,


but she was afraid of a fierce falcon, Moral:
that liked squirrels just as food. You need your friends,
so do not make fun of them.
For that reason, Lola looked for the cat,
which -although silly- was very big. You better love your friends as they are,
The other animals respected the cat, anyway, it is not your business
and he protected Lola. if some of them
are chubby or not very bright.
But one morning,
the squirrel woke up in a mocking mood.
She laughed at the cat
because he didn't know
that a big owl
-with whom he usually tried to talk-
was not able to speak.

“Oh, silly cat,


the enormous owl is made of wood!
It is only good to frighten the doves,
that are a real plague,
which makes dirty
wherever place they pass”.
Then, the big silly cat got truly offended
and didn’t want to be her friend anymore.

From that day, Lola is alone.


She trembles in fear and stays at home.
