Muses was frightened, so I climbed up to her slowly, pausing often to give her some sweet talk and sweet eyes and time to see that I was not threatening. At one point I saw her looking upward for an escape, but, thankfully, she did not climb higher. In time, she calmed down enough to let me approach her and make friends with her. When I began to pull the carrier closer, however, she appeared to get uncomfortable with it, so I quickly put it away. I did not want to risk her climbing any higher in the tree, especially with a bald eagle circling high overhead. Instead, I bagged her as gently and quickly as I could. She was not happy about that, but I consoled her as best I could. Hopefully, that was all soon forgotten, since a minute later, she was safely back down on the ground, and Sherry took her inside to release her. After getting settled back inside, Muses, as she often likes to do, went to sleep on top of her doggie brother.
