See - all the running and jumping on counters was just the warm-up for the main event - competition hunting! Last night we got down to business.
First to score - SAMHAIN! (Big applause) I brought in a mouse! OK, so it was a very SMALL mouse, but ya gotta understand - we are limited by the size of the wire mesh on our cage. Now when the winter sets in (oh, in about a couple of weeks - the Mama interjects only half-jokingly), and the mice start coming in the house, we may have some bigger sport.
I brought that wee little mousie in and hardly had any time to chase it in the house, 'cause the Mama and Papa were still up, and the Mama heard it squeak. I was growling and wouldn't let it go, so the Papa just picked ME up and put me back through the catdoor, mousie and all! I came back in, though, and let it go in the Mama's closet. After much grumbling from the Papa, the mouse was caught and this time taken out the front door while the Mama distracted me with some kitty treats. Hey, wait a minute - I wasn't through with that!
2nd Score: SLEEPER! (More applause) By this time, the pawrents were already in bed. Sleeper's such a card; she thought it would be great fun to put the frog on the sheet next to the Papa's nose. (Hee hee) According to the Papa, the poor little thing was terrified and didn't move. He was able to scoop it up and take it outside, unharmed. (I'm not sure if we can say that about the mousie, though it WAS still alive.)
3rd Score: ? Don't know who this belongs to, so we end in a tie. (Big groan from the audience) This morning the Mama is walking to the kitchen sink and sees the dessicated body of another baby frog. (TYPIST'S ADDITION: This is baby frog season, BTW - there are literally thousands out there in the grass right now.)Guess we'll have to go for a rematch - alRIGHT!!!
Oh, and my eye DOES look better this morning, but the Mama says we'll continue the antibiotic ointment for at least today.
sam: at leest yur dad be like WAY braver N our mom, if her waked up N seed a mouz on de pillow her wood pazz out....her iz trooly a sissy...like one time we seed a taran toola in de houz..biggest spider like EVER...bet it wuz big round aza quarter N her freeked out N sweeped it down de heat duct ...like even WE noe what good that did coz guess who be bak a few days later .....
Whoa - sorry, Tabbies! Need to make a small correction here - I didn't specify species - it was a FROG that Sleeper brought in, not a mouse. Though that would have made it more exciting for the Papa if it HAD been a mouse! Will go fix the entry now!
tee: if yur mom wooda had de frog on her pillow her coulda gave de frog a wee kiss ta see if he turned inta price charmin...then yur day wooda woked up N been like...uh......
MOL!!! Tabbies, yous not right!!!
Just to set the record straight - I won the competition, 'cause on the following two nights, I caught two MORE little mousies. Of course, I brought them inside, and of course, the Mama took them away from me! Unfair!!! She didn't even give me any treats in exchange.
