If you are wandering outside at night, you may catch sight of me as I run around looking for dinner. Let’s play catch me if you can. I excel at climbing and leaping from branch to branch, haha, you can’t catch me now.Find Food
Pine Martens are part of the Mustelid family which includes otters, skunks, ferrets, weasels, and others. Around 60,000 years ago the Pine Marten migrated from Asia to North America. The Pine Marten is nocturnal and feasts on fruit—it loves raspberries and strawberries—nuts, bugs, and small mammals. The Pine Marten has also been called a forest kitten.
I am very cute, and about the size of a cat. I have to be careful when I am out hunting and am wary of the skies, for in the sky is the eagle, and eagles love to pick up smaller creatures. My pawprints are hard to distinguish because I use a loping gait, which means my back paws fall into the prints left by my front paws, sneaky, so it takes a clever sleuth to track me.
Your pet becomes an expert at finding its own food!Tree climbing
Trees are the whole world for arboreal pets. Their homes. Their social venues. Their food stores. And their playgrounds. This also makes trees the logical venue for pet games and competitions!
Tree climbing is one of the oldest traditional pet games, because it is used by arboreal parents to teach their offspring basic survival and foraging skills. While most arboreal pets were happy just going about their business of homemaking, romancing, foraging and eating, the monkeys became bored, and decided to make a game out of the business of living, competing with one another and their arboreal friends to climb ever faster and higher!
