Up a tree

The forest mouse Murfy lives alone in a quiet tree. He is overly concerned with security and predictability. He counts his nuts every morning, and has a stockpile
that can last at least two full winters. Murfy is always prepared for the worst possible senario.

One day a neighbor moves into Murfy’s tree - with thundering noises: A squirrel that lives in the moment and loves hopping and jumping, fun and dance. The two neighbours’ lifestyles are quickly on a collision course. Murfy has to make a choice. Should he move out or should he throw caution to the wind and join in on the fun and dance?
