Saving the local wildlife

One of the roommates set up a large inflatable pool in the back yard. The window next to my bed looks right at it. Today, I woke up to a splashing sound. I peak out the window and there is a squirrel swimming around in the pool. He kept on trying to climb out of pool but since the walls are inflated and plastic, he couldn't get a grip on the side at all.

I quickly throw on some clothes and head outside. The poor guy was obviously getting tired and was having a hard time keeping his head above the water. I looked around and found a old mop that was leaning up against the house. I grab it and stick the mop into the water. The squirrel didn't quite understand what I was trying to do, but after a little bit of fishing around the squirrel finally grabbed on to the end of the mop. I lifted him out and set him down next to the pool. He just laid there for a couple minutes, catching his breathe and counting his blessings.

poor little guy! sounds like you need to make miniature ladders for getting in/out since it's obvious they're going to hop in it, anyway!

There is a step ladder for the pool, but wasn't in the pool at the time. I put it in there, and it will hopefully help. But I am still going to have to play lifeguard.

This should totally be a children's book.
