Cat & mouse (er -squirrel)

We have oak trees and usually there are several squirrels busily eating or burying acorns in the yard. There are also several neighborhood cats that drop in hoping for a meal. A couple of days ago we watched as above cat snuck into the yard while a squirrel seemed to be only interested in the acorns. When cat made his moved, squirrel disappeared, leaving the cat at the base of the tree with no clue as to where his lunch went. Said lunch was safely 20 feet up. So far I have not evidence of a successful hunt by the cats. I posted other unsuccessful hunts last year (black and yellow).
