Young chipmunk

Encountered a young chipmunk in my yard, apparently hoping to be eaten by a cat. It scrambled up my screen porch twice, falling to the ground once it reached the top of the screen. Wrapped it in a towel and released it in the crotch of a willow. Cute, but needs to pay better attention. Ran right between my toothless cat’s feet!
