Mom doesn't do vacuuming very often as she isn't a great housekeeper. Auntie Lilian might be coming for a visit so Mom decided to tidy up the spare bedroom. In doing so, she opened the closet where she keeps the vacuum. That closet has been closed since April. Squirrel & I wanted to snoop in there so she left it open. Mom and Lobo were gone ALL day on one of their hiking trips so Squirrel & I were quite active when they got home as we had been snoozing all day. Mom said she was tired as they had hiked like 8 miles and she had done a lot of driving so she wanted to go to bed after barely playing with us. What she didn't know is that I had discovered some mice in that closet. Toy mice that we had accidentally lost under the door many months earlier. I waited for her to fall asleep before I started playing with the gray mousie. Eventually, I brought it to bed with us and was throwing it up high in the air and jumping up to catch it. Mom woke up to see what was going on. She saw that I had a toy mouse and was afraid that I might accidentally scratch her face while I was playing because I was aiming my throws to have it land near her head. So, she grabbed the mouse and threw it into the living room. Well, that was even more fun! So I ran to catch it and brought it right back. This we did about ten times before Mom wanted to go back to sleep, so she stuck the mouse under her pillow and said "enough Kitcat, go to bed, it is 2am!" All good things must come to an end or must they? I let her get a little more beauty sleep and snoozed with Squirrel on the bed. Then, around 5am, I went back to the closet and grabbed another mouse! A white one this time. I carried it to bed with us and resumed the game of flying mousie!!! Mom woke up and kept throwing it for me and we had a blast before she got up to make coffee and give us our morning treat. There is nothing more fun than finding toys that you haven't seen in a while.
