EDUCATING THE BOY

Personally, I think this part of his training was long overdue, so I decided to take matters into my own paws.

Last night was one of our livelier nights - don't know why; maybe the subtle change in the weather. It's been an odd summer anyway, mostly. Cool nights and only occasional hot days. But yesterday I felt it - that first sense that fall might be just around the corner. It had us all wired, active in the wee hours of the night. And we weren't the only ones moving around...

Fearless, ever ready to sacrifice herself to a cause, ran interference for us, keeping the pawrents occupied in other directions. Sleeper was lookout cat, keeping watch in the door. But we were found out anyway early this morning by the Mama.

I caught a mouse last night out in the cattery - at least the Mama assumes it was me. (I assure you - it WAS.) I, of course, brought it in to play with (torture, you mean, says the Mama with a frown.) Hey - I'm a cat; it's a mouse - you do the math.

And - (and this is what amazed the Mama and is the only reason she's letting me talk about it) in a spirit of true generosity and selflessness, I gave it to Owl. (Don't say I never gave you anything, you little irritant.) This is what the Mama found when she walked into the bedroom: Sleeper by the door, watching, and me and Owl with the mouse. Or rather, my looking on like a proud cat-mama while Owl batted the mouse around. Unfortunately, or fortunately - depending on your point of view - it was still alive, so the Mama grabbed it up in a wad of paper towels and took it outside, putting it in a spot where the Ferals wouldn't get it, in case it had a chance of recovery. She has told us before, she applauds us keeping the mice out of the house, (wishes we wouldn't bring them IN), but she's not keen on our keeping them alive to play with. What can I say? It's who I am - deal with it.

Yes, we did well this time, and I ended up looking like the good guy. :)
MILO, won't be long and it will be plenty cold here, no doubt. I'll send you a snowball, my friend.

"Hey - I'm a cat; it's a mouse - you do the math." ...MOL! I just love it! Sounds like my kind of little lady! But I could be your great-great-great grandfather, so don't take that the wrong way--I just like how you think!
