There was a very clumsy squirrel to whom nobody loved because of that. She was actually very smart, but nobody loved her, she was very special, but nobody loved her.

One day, a man dressed in green clothes that had leaves all over his face, caught a mole. The mole´s glasses fell down the floor, he was called Sugar. He was not as smart as the squirrel, but he was not that clumsy, so everybody loved him.

A woman dressed in brown, like a tree, caught the sqirrel, but nobody did anything.

While the woman was talking on the phone with her boyfriend:

– “I love you so much”.

The squirrel opened the cage with her long nails, and then took all the keys and opened all the cages.

– “Thanks, thanks!” – were the animals saying.

The animals escaped happily.
