High Jump

Squirrel readies for high jump off large garbage pail and scoot in fear.

Squirrel readies for high jump off large garbage pail after fearfully eyeballing anyone approaching it from street.

==================================================================================================
On edge ready to high jump the marauding gray squirrel eyeballed anyone approaching as it teetered on the rim almost falling off the drab-green colored garbage pail.

Mr. squirrel had just checked out the loose material inside the pail when it heard me so he quickly darted out of the pail in fear to perch on the edge of the pail ready jump and scoot.

Gray squirrels have become a nuisance in the neighborhood because they sometimes tear the large green garbage bags to get at whatever they smelled inside them leaving a mess for the homeowners to clean up before the garbage company truck arrives for pick up.

This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”JUMP”.
