Chapter 1 – Meet Scratchy

Chapter 1: Meet Scratchy
Meet Scratchy

Scratchy, a black squirrel, had a habit of scratching his right side. He was itchy most of the time, especially in the summer, when it was hot and humid. But, Scratchy found that if he scratched just above his front leg on his right shoulder, he felt so much better. It satisfied the itch. 

Scratchy loved to eat seeds and nuts. His favorite nuts were American walnuts. Chestnuts were a close second, but, truth be told, Scratchy loved all kinds of nuts. He could not get enough. He spent most of his time foraging for nuts in the fields and the woods near his house.
