It was late at night and mom was shutting down the house for bed. I thought she looked a little sleepy and needed to get rid of that sleepiness. I like the insomnia...she stays up with me!!! I had to fight off "Winken, Blinken, and Nod" for her so... I ran up from the basement level with A MOUSE!!!! We have been feeding the birds out in the backyard (DROOOL!!!) so it seems we now have been supporting the local rodentia as well. I have been waiting patiently. One finally squeezed in the gap in teh baseboard (darn! mom found the hole and patched it up since!).
I ran up the stairs after toying with it for a while, and dropped it right at mom's feet. WOW! She can hit some HIGH notes!!!! She SCREEECHED!!! Pawpaw came running down the stairs and the mouse ran under the fridge. That is where I kind of fell off the project, as I already had given my gift of the mouse. I was sure the mouse was under the accordian (don't ask why we have an accordian...mom doesn't know either). After much fishing out, and Zoe trying to take over, mom and pawpaw caught the mouse and let it out the back door again (no movement after releasing to the woods). I think it had a heart attack though. He was really looking stunned after he moved from the fridge to under the oven.
Mom said thanks, but don't bring it to the kitchen next time. The basement is fine. And not at 1 am!!!! They are just glad I didn't stash a deceased mouse somewhere to find with our noses. PEEEEUUUUUUU!
I am officially a big, bad kitty!!!!! :)
