I caught a mouse! I caught a real mousie! I found it downstairs in the basement and brought it upstairs in my teeth to show the humans. They thought it was a toy--were they surprised when I dropped it and it scampered away! (But why was mom so upset? I don't get it.) Anyway, it's gone now--I wonder where it went? Mom says I have to catch it as soon as possible, and not to bother to show it to her next time! *giggles* She made dad set out a trap in the part of the basement I'm not allowed to get to. She only wants me to catch it if it comes out, I guess.

Today, when I woke from my mid-morning nap and went downstairs to my basement playroom to check on dad, who was doing something with the computer down there, I found that instead of sitting nicely at the computer (which I allow him to do in my playroom), he was over by the sliding glass door, tapping on it and looking outside. I went over to see what was going on and saw that on the other side of the door was an enormous raccoon, about twice my size, obviously interested in invading my palace!
Dad was trying to chase it away, but it was obviously unimpressed. I raced over to stand next to dad and gave that nasty raccoon a good, hard, cold stare—and after looking back at me and seeing that the puny human was not defending his home all by himself, it ran off! Get lost, Mr. Raccoon! I am in charge here. I will defend this territory. I will protect the humans. *victory dance*

Dad found some of my old catnip mousies under the bed. I have catnip mousies in a variety of colors--pink, orange, green, and blue. Well some of the mousies had evidently been hidden there fur a long time, and some of their color had bled onto the rug. I wonder what could have caused that? There isn't any water. It seems very odd.
