Cat and Mouse

It is cold here. It is going to snow today. With the cold, come small rodents into the warmth. We don't get many, just a few. We have a cat and two mouse killing dogs - oh, and a resident snake in the basement - they don't last long in my home.

Last night, I watched my cat kill a mouse (sorry, the picture I took is too dark to post) as I provided a running commentary for the spectacle. "He tosses him up - the mouse attempts a feeble squeek" "and we are Off - wait, the cat heads him off at the pass!" etc. . . The Boy asked many questions . . .

At the end of the commentary, I did tell the cat - Stu is his name - to finish it off or he (Stu) was sooo going into the dryer *snicker*. He sauntered past me - mouse in his mouth - to the open door and out he went.

I need to get out more, or maybe stay in where others can't be exposed to my lunacy.

Carry on.

We live out in the sticks; I say a mole yesterday in the living room! Problem is, we don't have (or want) a cat!! Guess we'll just have to get the butterfly net out and catch the sucker! Wanna come over and give a play-by-play on that?? *L*
