Postcard 5 from Hazel the squirrel

Hi friends,

You know something funny?  I've always been afraid of owl, but I knew she was wise, so I got up my courage and went to ask her.  I hid in a sword fern, just in case.  Owl was very sleepy, but she laughed when she saw me hiding.  "Don't you know I only hunt in the night, or when its just getting dark? You're a day animal."  

I thought whew, that means I don't need to be afraid of her any more. Then I thought about Snowberry, because mice are mostly night animals.  But before I could say anything else Owl kind of chuckled and said "Besides, I don't eat talking animals".   "Oh, " I said, "then have you seen Snowberry?"  She nodded wisely and said, "No, not recently.  But you should ask someone who lives on the ground."  

Why do you think she suggested that?
Am I going nuts?
