Sammy the Squirrels Big Adventure

Once, there was a baby squirrel named Sammy. Sammy was tired of living in the same old oak tree, so he set out looking for an adventure.

He scampered through the forest, dodging branches and leaping over streams. He met new friends along the way, like a family of rabbits and a wise old owl. But the best part of his journey was when he reached the top of the tallest tree in the forest. From there, he saw the entire forest.

Sammy realized life is an adventure that was just beginning. He scampered home, ready for his next adventure.

Endangered Red Squirrels

Red Squirrels are an endangered species in the UK with numbers falling dramatically over the last 100 years. This is because grey squirrels have been killing them by carrying a virus deadly to reds. By 1997 the numbers of red squirrels on Anglesey was close to extinction with less than 40 living in one woodland.

Work has been done to get rid of grey squirrels and increase the population of red squirrels on the island. Today 60% of Welsh red squirrels can be found on Anglesey. In 2016 the island was said to be free of grey squirrels.

Hunter the wild cat

This is Hunter the wild cat. One night in the woods Hunter was chewing on a bit of wood. “OUCH!!! MY TOOTH HURTS!” He cried. In the morning Hunter woke up and he went to the vets. When he got there he said “MY tooth hurts!”. “It is ok” said the vet.

The vet and the cat went into the room and the vet said “ we have to take two teeth out” “NO NO NO!!! Please don’t please”. “Sorry we have to” NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! The vet had a plan I will give him a treat if he sits still. Hunter did!

The stray cat

“Meow.”The brown cat is at my door again. He has been here every day for the past   week. I’ve been feeding him for the past four days. I don’t think he will be leaving any  time soon, so I may as well let him in. I could do with the company anyway. Maybe he’ll bring me some good luck. Everyone knows I need it. Opening my door, I let him in. He’s now sitting down in front of the fire. He will not be leaving in a long time, so I may as well get used to him.“Meow.”
