There's a mouse in the house.........................

No - I don't have pictures! Because when you are chasing a live mouse around your house - you just don't have time to take a picture!!!! The whole time I'm up on the hearth (yes I didn't want to be at ground level), pointing to it's path and watching Randy and Emily chase it (while the cat sat in the corner licking herself like ...."yeah - I brought it in - you deal with it now"!!) I'm thinking - I SO WISH I HAD MY CAMERA IN HAND!! Our friend Katie was over for dinner and we were all laughing so hard, running, jumping up on things, etc. - nothing but the best for our dear friend - Dinner - complete with entertainment!

Needless to say - Lola the cat has figured out how to use the doggy door! She's known how for a while, but now she's decided that it's best if she brings us presents. In the last week she's brought a bird, 4 dead shrews, 1 half dead mouse, and 2 LIVE mice - that we know of!

Kind of freaks me out - HOW MANY TIMES HAS SHE DONE THIS WHEN WE'RE NOT HOME?!?!?!

Today I'm calling the Spay Station, cuz as SOON as she's fixed we have a new home for her! She's absolutely sweet and precious, but how do you UNTRAIN a cat to quit using the doggy door and bringing in dinner?

Maybe I'll keep my camera out on the counter so it's available should we have another encounter............................................

Instead of the counter, put it on your mantle, then you it's ready when you leap up onto the hearth again!

Oh, and BLAGH!!!

Was it not Lola the cat you tryed to give my kids a few weeks back? I'm feeling a bit grateful that Randy was not able to drop her off a our house that week. You guys said she was a mouser, I assumed she would keep them away not bring them in.
