house mouse

in honor of the mouse we found in our house today we are dedicating this to our quiet, silky yet cooperative ones,

we like these better. they lay right here. the house mouse we found ran everywhere.

...these here are three blind mice.
we are in control. we can throw em up high even. that house mouse was very fast and we couldnt catch him for more than seconds. too quick .

we think mom prefers these to the real thing anyway.

Thats right folks. The last two nights all four cats have been surrounding the stove, eyes and ears glued to its' base. For hours.

Upon removing the pull out drawer we found three of their silk mice. Junior remained underneath the stove, cornering something. And well, thats when the house mouse made a run for it.

Good for protectors! I think your house is very safe now, especially since you found your silky mice.

Oh wow! A live mouse in the house! My mom would still be on top of the cabinets.

That is an interesting story. We thinks we had some mice in a box of food we had here.... we kept hearing little scratchy noises. But then mom put the box outside on the back porch without looking in it!

The last house mouse we had, Miss Rosemary JOY! did in and laid it out on the living room floor just like a funeral home. Momma nearly fainted when she saw it and then she got a paper towel and put it into the trash. WHAT! We were all gathered fur a funeral service and it was interrupted by the garbage collector!

I hate to ask what happened to the real one! What kind of chance did it have in a house with four gatos?

We get real mice in the house occasionally...usually it's when we find one outside and bring it *inside* to play with! MOL The Mommy hates when we do that.

Glad you at least got the silky mice back from under the stove!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

I bring mousies in from outdoors to show mum but if I haven't deaded it, she makes me take it back out. Sometimes I bring them in when the Beans are in bed, then they wake up cuz they hear me thundering around after it.
