Well someone's springing into action. But what action, I wonder?
First panel=minor bushy-tailed tree-bear. I looked at a lot of squirrel references (which was an enormous time-suck because I love squirrels, even the attack squirrels* at my dad's house), but I guess I'm not used to seeing squirrels walk that much. In my experience, their movement is generally limited to being still, leaping, sprinting, and freaking the f out. So seeing them walk looks unusual to me, and all I can see is little bear legs, hence minor bushy-tailed tree-bear.
By the way, I am basically a squirrel whisperer:
Have a great weekend!
* I swear these squirrels would wait for you to walk under their tree and then bean you with acorns.
