Somebody left a dead mouse in the driveway!
Was it a warning? An offering? A leftover? or an accident?
Today mom didn't go to work because she wasn't feeling well. (nothing serious don't worry). When mom took me out for a walk, she saw a small grey mouse. Dead in the driveway. There was a little blood, but not much. Of course I zero in on the mouse and go right up to it. Mom held me back with the leash but I tried to bat at it. She wouldn't let me touch it! Gahhhh! I so wanted to check it out! Anyway, I took a walking turn around the driveway and came back to the mouse and tried again. Still wouldn't let me get close. Finally mom picked me up and we walked to the park.
So.... Who left the mouse? And why? It could be stray cat. There are a couple in the neighborhood, as well as several families who keep outdoor/indoor cats. Or maybe Jaime Fox or his wife and kits? But why did they leave it? Did it taste bad? Maybe a hawk dropped it. Mom has seen a hawk flying every now and then.
This is the second mysterious dead mouse in the driveway, actually. Last time there was no blood at all, and mom was afraid it was poisoned and threw it out before I even saw it. It was several weeks ago.
Maybe I should call in Sobelock Holmes. Or Pharaoh Loki- I know he's writing a Sherlock Holmes story.
Unfortunately I think this mystery may never be solved. What a waste of a mouse.

I bet it was the neighbor cat, and they didn't eat it for the same reason we don't eat our mice that we catch - they don't seem like food to us - MOL! The fox would have eaten it for sure; was going to ask you how they were doing.
And someone is writing a Sherlock Holmes story? How cool!!! I wanna read it! I don't think Pharaoh Loki is a friend of mine; must go send a friend request!
Sobelock here...Dad Guy has seen a hawk drop half a mouse before...Nature rarely wastes,however...Your Mom is wise to not allow you access to the Corpus Mouseus Delecti,since I believe the most likely culprit is poisoning....
uh, excuse me, but I can't find Pharaoh Loki. I know I've seen his name on comments, but just now when I looked under that name in advanced search, it came up empty.
Sobelock, I sure hope it wasn't poison that got the corpus mouseus delecti (teeheehee) because mom doesn't want poison anywhere near us.
Samhain, here is Pharaoh Loki's brother Chef Rooster's page:
Loki and Chef and their family are among Catster's very best! You will love them! Their diaries are my absolute favorite. Go and read all of chef Rooster and Pharaoh Loki's diaries, you will be rolling on the ground laughing. They are not as active as they used to be, but they are so loved. I get very excited when I see a new post from them
Ummmmmm Do you know Blizzard? Also know as The Catfather? I think he has a reputation for the dead mouse thing.... MOL!

I wonder if I'm actually going to be able to comment finally...
I am friends with Blizzard! But I didn't do anything to offend him and get the mouse. Did I ?!
A dead mouse!
Sometimes our dog-guy brofur tells us about the dead stuff he sniff on his strolls, but mice are not a frequent subject. Though moles and voles are...and squirrels...
Remember that deer mouse that we had in our den last year?!
Pipo & Minko sure had fun with that dude...
